We were so happy to find the blowup “collar” instead of the plastic cone. Why didn’t we buy a dozen of them? Or, if he needs to wear it 14 days, we’ll need at least 14 of them.
I keep thinking we have it on him too tight and we’re choking him but if it isn’t what seems to be too tight, he can get his paw through it and try to get it off.
We no longer have to worry about it being too tight because somehow, he bit a hole in it yesterday and now it’s leaking air. Thankfully, it’s a slow leak, which means we have to blow it up again about every hour and this morning, it was pretty much empty. Thankfully, the pet store opens at noon today and Vince said he’d run down and buy a couple more. We have four more ordered from Amazon and they should be here Monday evening but that may or may not be right.
This morning, he’s chewed the strap off so we have it pinned together and are hoping it will hold til we can get another one though now that he’s figured out how to destroy them, I’m not sure how long any of them are going to last.
When I got him out of the crate this morning, he had it just behind his legs. It looked like a hula hoop.
The vet said “no walks for a week” but this morning I took him out and we walked around the house a few times just to try to burn off some energy.
While I truly want to follow the vet’s orders, if we make it a full week with this thing, we’re going to be doing really good. Oscar is not being a good patient, but that’s pretty much what I expected from him.
