- Great product
I had a dog who had a self inflected wound on her stomach. I had to buy this tape in order to keep the bandages on her. Ordered this tape and received it the very next day. Price for shipping is a bit high but its well worth it if you pay for 7-14 days and get it next day.

This is a great product. Recommended by my chiropractor to straighten out a hammer toe. It seems to be working, stays on while showering, wearing shoes, sleeping. It is kind on my skin too, no rash, tapes comes off easy.
- Excellent product at a great price..!
I have used Elastikon on a number of occasions and know what an excellent product it is. What was really nice was to be able to get it at a great price with reasonable and very fast shipping...!!
As soon as it arrived, I started using it to wrap one of our rescue desert tortoises that had had surgery to remove a bladder stone. A portion of the shell is cut out to access the interior of the body to perform the surgery, then replaced afterward and covered with fiberglass to hold it while it knits back together or new shell is formed. The fiberglass had been damaged and needed to be removed, so the vet gave some medicated salve to put put into the grooves from the saw, and had me cover it with coach's tape. It didn't always adhere totally, so the Elastikon, being stickier, proved to be the best secondary tape to secure the edges of the coach's tape. The tortoise took issue to being wrapped, despite having a perfect Halloween costume with no effort, and became quite subdued, wouldn't eat, and generally did not seem to like the wrapping. Like either the vet or I thought it could be objectionable. It was a break in the tortoise's routine that caused the anxiety rather than mortification at looking like a mummy. The tortoise went back in to the vet, and one of the old pieces of shell had mostly sloughed off, so he removed it. It now needs to stay open to air to help it harden. So no more wrapping.
At least the tape works great, and I have a nice supply if needed down the road. When dealing with animals, it's often necessary to think "outside the box". I also used this tape as an exterior for a bandage for another tortoise's head. The gauze that went against the wound to its chin was inside on top of soft liner for bandags or casts, and only the edges of the Elastikon held it in place. More than sticky enough for the job, but still easy enough to remove to replace the bandage each day.
Great product, and I've used in applications for horses and humans, too.
