    Default My little Cone Head

    Tate went to the vet's this afternoon b/c of some sores on his neck...turns out they're infected so now he's on antibiotics and steroids. On top of all that, he's got to spend most of the time with this terribly uncomfortable cone around his neck. He's not a happy camper

    I took it off just now b/c he couldn't seem to find a comfortable position to lay down and sleep.

    For those of you who've had pets who needed one of these cones, did you leave it on them 24hr/day? the vet says he should have it on til his wounds heal which could take up to 2wks, but could take it off for eating his meals. I think i'm the one having a hard time with this...i hate seeing Tate so uncomfortable looking!

    Oh no! Is this from his little bros biting? I hate those cones! They do make some that are softer and more flexible..also..can he reach the sores? Scratch them? Poor baby!

    @JAKEISGREAT, the vet thinks that little bro's nipping may have exacerbated the wounds. it's in both sides of his neck and he tends to scratch the sores. Ouchy! The vet had to shave the area b/c it was all oozy.
    I just had to put the thing back on Tate b/c Finn's going at him again...so another reason to wear that darn cone! I would like to get him a softer flexible one you mentioned. I'll check if Petco or Petsmart carries them.

    Oh no, Tate!! They do look quite pitiful in them. Penny is on day 9 of a 10 day stint in her cone from her eye surgery. I can take it off tomorrow evening or Saturday morning (I have to call the vet to verify).

    We have left it on her 24 hours. I've taken it off twice...once to bath her and once because she managed to get her lower jaw out from underneath of it and it was stuck in her mouth. She was pretty ticked off about it the first few days, but then she got used to it, and she doesn't even really seem to notice it.

    It's not easy to get off or back on, so I have her bowls propped up so that she can get her cone around them to eat/drink. She has been spilling everywhere.

    I would just say watch Tate's neck. Penny's was kind of red/irritated the other night when we took it off after her bottom teeth were stuck, so we put a longer string around the base of it.

    So sorry for Tate. No doubt Finn's needle sharp teeth have been chewing on Tate's neck!

    I have been wiping it down with a baby wipe. It has all kinds of junk in it by the end of the day! When we have had it off we used Lysol wipes on it. She managed to chew the edges of it all up & it has dents all over, so it looks a little worse for the wear.

    I hope Tate heals quickly so that he doesn't have to wear it long. He'll get used to it though. They had inflatable ones that looked like airline neck pillows at our vet's office, but we had to have the big one so that she couldn't reach around to scratch her eye. You might check into those.

    Yes..I've seen them at petsmart..maybe you can just put it on if he is around his brother..if you crate them..maybe after a day or two..Tate won't scratch and cone can be off. They are hot too!
