I tried the tea tree oil, Val. The dog still chewed it off.

Thanks, I'll try the Tea Tree oil next time! I did try using Bitter Apple but they always seems to ignore that stuff.
I've been trying to wrap my cat's leg recently too and having the same problem with him pulling the vetwrap off. He has a lesion on his foot and it's not healing well because he keeps licking it. Too bad you can't use tea tree oil with cats (it's bad for them.)

I would swab a little on the bandage and see what the cat does. If he still chews then I would change the bandage.

Tea tree oil is TOXIC to cats. I would not put it on a bandage on a cat.

Well I figured out how to get my cat to stop pulling the vet wrap off.



Yes, that is a kitty-sized legwarmer. I put it over the bandage/vetwrap, and he hasn't pulled it off since! I guess it's because he can't unwrap it like the vet wrap, and the vet wrap is keeping it from being able to slide off since it's rubbery.
