Reply To: I don’t wanna be a mean muzzling mom

Grazing muzzles aren’t torture devices, I promise. My Morgan wears one to keep his weight in check, and sure, he tried to get it off at first, but he quickly got over it and now I’m honestly not sure he even notices it anymore. Personally, I think it’s more torturous to keep letting him pack on the pounds, which can put him at higher risk for things like arthritis, laminitis, and founder. Just make sure the muzzle fits comfortably (fleeces or moleskin can work wonders!) and then remind yourself every day that you’re doing the right thing for his health, by letting him stay with his pals and get plenty of outside time!
