Update on Dog Splint Cover

Remember a couple of weeks ago I posted that my dog, Jade, had been
hit by a car and sustained a broken bone in her foot?  I then made a
plastic-lined splint cover to keep it dry and protected when she goes
outside, and several of you suggested showing it to the vet to see if
it might be marketable.  Well, yesterday I took Jade in for follow-up
care, and the vet was very impressed with the cover!  SHE suggested (I
didn't even have to bring it up)  that I make up a few in different
sizes and bring them into her office to sell.  So I'll give it a try,
and thanks to all of you who suggested that I go for it.

Jade is healing very nicely.  She was supposed to have a plaster cast
put on yesterday and wear it for a month, but the bone was healing so
quickly that the vet just put on a fresh splint instead.  In one week,
I can change the dressing on the splint myself, then at the end of two
weeks the splint can be taken off completely.  I can do that myself,
instead of having to make yet another visit ($$$$) to the vet.

If I can sell some of these covers, maybe this cloud will have a
silver lining, after all.

Since she's interested, I'd say you're on the way.

Donna,
  I'm glad Jade is healing well. I hope the splint business takes off
like a firecracker! Be sure you get a hand-written recommendation from
your vet, and you might want to show your product to all of the animal
hospitals in your area. (computer printed business cards might be a good
thing, instead of leaving your produced items at the vet/hospitals.
   I'm rooting for you!

Hate to go all legalese on you, but start researching the patent laws and
register a name and copyright your design. That way when you go national,
you have established that you own the rights to that cool cover you came up
with!

Re: Update on Dog Splint Cover
Yay!!!  (on both counts. lol)  I'm glad Jade is doing so well.  And I'm
thrilled that the vet was so excited about the covers.  :)  This could be
the start of something wonderful.  :)
