Why Thousands of Dog Owners Trust No Flap Ear Wrap

Published

on

Founder and inventor of No Flap Ear Wrap, Julie Haught, has changed the way dogs recover from ear injuries. Haught’s dog Archer, one day had an ear injury so the vet gave him a vet wrap but he could never sleep properly in it and he always found a way to take it off. That is why she designed and sewn a dog ear wrap from some fleece and velcro. Her vet was so impressed by it that she immediately applied for a patent. Now, No Flap Ear Wrap is a family-owned business that has sold over 65,000 ear wraps to help thousands of dogs from all over the world. Here are Haught’s future goals. 

When was the first time you tasted success?

It all begins at the end of 2013 when we accidentally rescued a boxer named “Archer”. The first person who noticed my accidental product was Archers Veterinarian Dr. Davis. After surgery on his pinna (ear flap) that required 11-12 stitches, we were constantly having to have his ear re-bandaged as he could easily escape the bandages and E-collar. After going to have him re-wrapped either every day or every other day, I asked her, what was the most important thing we could do for his ear. She said, “We just need to keep his ear from flapping. (hence the name No Flap Ear Wrap) We must keep it wrapped to stop the flapping motion from forcing blood into the ear flap which in turn forces it to find an exit.”  I went home knowing he would eventually escape the bandaging again. 

I started thinking about how the bandaging worked and how the sticky tape was not beneficial to Archer’s fur. I had some fleece fabric, Velcro and a flexible cutting board. I knew I needed something that would attach around his face, that was not just a tube shape. It would need to attach around the face, around his neck and it would need support to keep it from slipping back.  I designed and sewed a wrap. It still had some bugs to work out so, after four tries, I landed it. Try as he might Archer could not get it off. He tried and tried but finally gave up.

We didn’t see Dr. Davis for at least a week. We walked into the office for our re-check and of course, everybody stared. The Vet Techs, in the office that day, asked us where we got the wrap. After seeing Archer, Dr. Davis was pleased with how well and quickly he was healing. She asked me if I could wait in the waiting area until she was done with one more patient. I said yes and was more than puzzled. She came into the waiting area and sat down. She was amazed at what I had created. Her advice to me was to get a patent attorney immediately as there was nothing like it on the market or in the Veterinary world. I sat there dumbfounded. Archer and I laughed all the way home. As did my husband when we told him. 

Why do you want to be successful and what’s your ultimate vision of success for yourself?

We hope that we can affect the industry at the protocol level. We would like to be the first-line protocol treatment for ear injuries (as opposed to an alternative solution). We have already achieved that with several animal hospitals, but we would like to achieve that with the bigger chains (VCA, and Banfield Animal Hospitals).

Any last words of advice for readers?

If there are other accidental inventors out there, don’t leave your work sitting in a closet. Share it with others and see where the road leads. Spend the money on a patent attorney. It is worth it. Lastly, always remember that you can’t succeed if you don’t even try.

An Innovative Take On Crypto-Currency and Blockchain With Jenny Q. Ta

Published

on

Crypto currency and blockchain have been some of the most hotly debated subjects in the past five years. Ever since the introduction of Bitcoin on the market by the highly elusive Satoshi Nakamoto, traders, businessmen and regular folk across the world have been getting more and more into this brand new, exciting field.

One person who recognized the potential attributes and benefits of a decentralized society and network was serial entrepreneur and Wall Street veteran Jenny Q. Ta. Now, in 2020, she has recently launched her blockchain-operated social network and crypto marketplace: Coinlinked.com.

Although it has not been on the market for more than a few weeks, Coinlinked is already making waves along the people in the crypto community and is bringing an array of innovations in this particular sector.

One thing that immediately stands out about this crypto-run global market is that it is easy to use and understand, which allows a lot more ‘normies’ (as they are affectionately referred to in the crypto universe) to get into this whole crypto currency thing.

Because the reason a lot of people tend to stick to Fiat money (aka “real money”) is that they do not understand the market and going-ons of a crypto currency such as Bitcoin.

But with her brand new Coinlinked.com, a much-upgraded version of one of Jenny Q. Ta’s previous networks, Jenny makes crypto accessible to the common Internet user.

Coinlinked allows each and every one of its users to buy any product from any website in the world and pay for those products with cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum, and other big names in the crypto markets (to be implanted in the future).

Coinlinked can definitely be seen as a big step forward for the crypto universe, and this blockchain-backed network is what is needed to bring crypto more into the spotlight and make it more mainstream, which obviously would have great effects on the market and encourage the rise of various coins.

“We’ve designed this platform to vastly simplify the spending of digital assets, making the buying process smoother, faster, more intuitive, and more convenient for today’s crypto-holder. By combining a simple and efficient drop-shipping solution with a robust rewards system, the evolution of Social Networthing® takes on a whole new meaning. Especially in light of this new world we’re entering due to COVID-19, we’re streamlining the entire e-commerce process for people who want to move away from the dangers of spending or holding physical currency and want to purchase essential or other goods with crypto-payments.”

In this quote, taken from a recent interview that Jenny Q. Ta gave, she highlights a very interesting aspect of Coinlinked and what it may mean for the post-COVID-19 society that we are just entering.

With the recent pandemic and heavy lockdown all over the world, we are definitely seeing a gear-shift in the way people interact with coins and transactions, and we can definitely see the potential benefits of a crypto-currency operated marketplace in view of a future outbreak of this magnitude.
