Medical Devices

Certain medical devices can help a recovering or ailing Dane.  If you have a dog with medical issues, you might check these items out.

Ear injuries and infections can be very difficult to treat-the more the problem bothers the dog, the more he shakes his head, making it all the worse.  It's important to keep the ears stable to prevent further injury and hematomas.

No Flap Ear Wrap
Highly recommended by Ridgeback breeder/exhibitor Marykay Ligocki, the No Flap Ear Wrap holds the ears securely preventing further damage.


Donut Collar
When appropriate, the donut-type collar is excellent to prevent scratching at ears or face wounds and is far less stressful than the plastic cone (Elizabethan) collar. The collar has an inner tube that inflates with air and an outer cover.  Loops on the inside allow for a collar to in inserted for a snug fit, and the front has velco straps to keep the front closed.

The quality and sizing of these collars varies greatly from brand to brand. Be sure to measure your dog's neck then refer to the sizing chart provided by the manufacturer.  Outer material choices include a soft felt (not my preference as it's damaged too easily), a rubbery-substance, and cordura nylon (my choice).

Donut collars are an excellent choice to use on freshly cropped puppies, as they are easy to get off and on and comfortable for the puppy. To locate collars, call your local pet store or do a search through Amazon.

I currently have a new XXL ZenPet recovery collar for sale for $25.00.  (Price new at stores over $35.00)

Novaguard Recovery Collar
This company offers a variety of protective collars to protect eyes and prevent scratching.  The products are much less invasive than the traditional Elizabethan collar.

Another brand of protective eye gear.  Sheila Sullivan used this brand when her Dane had an eye injury and found it very helpful.

This product is applied to the pads of dog who may have mobility issues and provides needed friction to their feet to assist them getting traction.  Highly recommended by Allison Paxton, a Dane breeder.


Medipaw Pet Wound Management
This company carries a variety of items that are helpful, especially for leg wounds.  Dena Cassell used one of the leg boots to help protect the dressing on a broken toe and found it very helpful.


This is a protective "suit" the dog wears to prevent them from accessing a surgical site or stitches.  Highly recommended by Dane owner Lynda Moulter.  She used this product after having major problems with her dog after surgery, and felt it was a game changer in the healing process.


Animal Pet Stretcher Trolley
If a big dog goes down, it's virtually impossible to get them up and move them.  This item will allow you to safely move your dog in the unfortunate event they can't get up.


Help Em Up
Perhaps your Dane has had surgery or is getting old and losing rear mobility.  This harness is designed to assist the human help .their dog get up and also to support them as they are moving. This model came highly recommended by various Dane owners and breeders. This company also makes other medical devices for canines.

Pet Support Suit
Recommended by Melissa Wilste, a Bullmastiff breeder, this harness also is an option for helping dogs with mobility issues.
