    The cone the vet put on lasted about 12 hours before Murray chewed through it, then I got him the blow up cone and although he did go through 3 of them in the end he tolerated it a lot better and I think it was more comfy for him to sleep in! Good luck and hang in there!!

    Seeing Lockjaw in that kennel makes me sad. The last time one of our guys came home with a cone like that, we determined that it was WAY to big in terms of how far it sticks out. Collars/cones are sized by "neck" and not legs. IOW, since a Bully has a huge neck and short legs, most collars stick out entirely too far. It only needs to be big enough to keep the paws/claws away from the surgery site. I ended up cutting 3-4 inches all the way around and it worked great...much less banging into furniture, cabinets, shins, etc. and more importantly, easier on the patient.
    If you do cut away some of it be sure to take a emery board and smooth out the cut edge a little.
    Get well soon big boy!

    Lose the plastic cone... Get a softcone or inflated one--- so much better for them

    I actually thought about cutting it. He finally started sleeping on his side/back. It's just the worst when we go outside for him to use the bathroom, bc when he puts his head down it catches on the ground.

    So happy that Lockjaw is doing well! Two of my girls had the entropion,one had nares also.
    They wore the cone for two weeks each. After awhile they learned to keep their head up,when they walked. I did have to hold their dish,so they could eat. It was hard on the backs of my legs as they followed me and the cone would get me!
    After several days,they just learned how to control the cone! I did have to wipe it quite a bit,from them going outside. Good luck Lockjaw!

    Yea- I can tell he's walking better with it. I'm also holding his food / water bowls for him and cleaning him and the cone. Lol- so far I've had to keep him and Penny completely separate. He gets too excited and wants to run and play. Penny just runs from him bc of he cone I think. They've both had to take turns with time outside of the crate. Lol- I feel bad, but it's only 2 weeks and then everything will be nice and healed and they can play and cuddle again.

    Oohhhhh- I like that one!!!! He's doing much better today. Getting used to it for sure. We've been able to let him roam about today with Penny. She's not bothering him like I thought and they've both been pretty chill. I'm sure this makes him much happier. Lol
