A reader asked, “Can an aggressive dog wear a muzzle 24/7?”
Is it possible? Yes.
Will it damage them? Probably not.
Will the dog have a high quality life? NO
I would not recommend giving up on this dog and simply resorting to a muzzle. If you are unable to cure the dog, or to feel safe working with the dog, you may need to find another home. Bless you for trying.
There are many ways to completely cure a dog of aggression. A muzzle may be needed for a short while as the dog begins to respond to treatments, holistic or conventional.
First, it is very important to follow the 7 Keys to Health , especially to only vaccinate with the Rabies and nothing else as we have seen aggression caused by too many vaccines.
Second, I would strongly recommend working with an integrative veterinarian who is very well trained in multiple holistic modalities. Homeopathy, TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine – acupuncture and more), chiropractic and Ayurvedic would be the most likely to rebalance the underlying quantum imbalance that is causing the aggression. This may save your dog’s life and allow him to have a normal life without having to suffer with out having to wear a muzzle.
