    valium or benydryl. check with your vet first. if you are able to monitor him a soft muzzle would help but NEVER leave a muzzled dog unattended.

    If you have a big pet store near you like a petco or petsmart, they might have a different kind of softer collar that won't get in the way a much. Our small local stores don't carry them, but our bigger stores do.

    Whenever our dogs hurt a paw we always put a baby sock over their paw. Pull the sock all the way up, snuggly but not tightly wrap medical tape around the outside of the sock, then roll the top of the sock back down over the tape. Makes it harder for them to pull off giving you enough time to catch them in the act. [​IMG]
