Hi Jenny,

Can you put a light bandage on it ?

I've done that and then put one of my socks over it and and held the sock tight ( not too tight, I might add) with some plaster.

Then put a plastic bag on the sock, if Mick has wanted to go to the loo in the garden.

I think you would be better with one of those lampshades to stop him getting at it. They sell them at pets at home for about 3.50 and I put one on Benji every night to stop him scratching his ears in the night and making them bleed. Benji has a size 3 so I suppose scruffy would need the same size as he is a Bichon too.
