He's a good dog the only issues I have with him is that he bites his tail and in the three weeks I've had him his wound is not healing he also came with a wound under the eye that he won't leave alone and again isn't healing. He's seen the vet who put a head collar on him that totally freaked him out and he got off after 24 hrs. I don't think tunnelling the vision of a deaf dog is a good option and any tips of how to train him to leave it alone will be appreciated.

Your dogs sound lovely. Look forward to photos
You need to find out why he is working at his wounds - sounds like allergies to me. One of ours will scratch at her face until it bleeds with allergies. Has your vet tried antihistamines ?

he is so excitable and friendly around people that he wacks his tail on everything and is constantly yelping in pain the tail doesn't stand a chance of healing as he makes it worse everytime he catches it and he can still reach it even with a large head collar so the best option is to shorten it.

Hope the surgery goes well and good to Tyson is gaining weight and settling in. There is a lot of advice on deaf boxers on the "home" page of The Whitestuff.
