Butt protection-- easy, no sew!
by Jill

Tandy had been dragging her rear and getting UTIs and skin chaffing. She kept pulling off the doggie diapers, and they really didn’t last more than 5 minutes.

 

Tandy is 12 pounds and I used size 6 little girls' underwear.The size need not be exact as the fit is forgiving.

Put rear legs through underwear pants leg holes.

Pull the outer sides of the leg hole up and gather above the base of the tail.

Secure gathers with a hair elastic.

 

 

 The underwear is staying up very well, and she seems to be much more comfortable. It does not help with incontinence, but it does protect her rear and keep her comfortable. Hope this helps!
