    Huskies are notorious for chewing off bandages- try some vetwrap (can get it from your vet or any pet store/feed store) and then spray the heck out of it w/ bitter apple spray....if it's wet outside, wrap it up w/ a plastic newspaper bag- Good luck!

    If all else fails- and you are handy w/ a sewing machine- take a long sleeve t-shirt, sew up one sleeve, and have her wear it. She will hate you, but her owie will stay clean.

    My dog has the same problem. I put antibiotics on his paws and I put dog booties on his paws so the medicine doesn't come off. You can get dog booties at petsmart.

    when changing the bandages after applying any topical antibiotics dampen the gause and wrap firmly but not too tight around the wound apply dry gause and clear plastic first aid tape.

    go to a hunting supply store (i.e. gander mountain, scheel's, cabela's, you get the idea) and get some dog booties.....they are usually rubber or plastic...and they have a better chance of staying on than anything else you might try to use.

    Try a sock with a rubber glove on top of it.
