    So, midway through the night last night Murray figures out how to remove and start chewing his now second soft e collar from the vet and pawing at his eye. So I did what I did with his first one and sewed it in and he didn't like that at all and was very bad and bit me as I was putting the cone back on/putting a drop in so I very firmly said 'NO! bad boy' to him and lightly tapped his mouth which I know was probably not the best way to handle the situation and not to make excuses but was 3am and we were both getting frustrated. Even after sewing it in I felt like the soft e collar was flopping out away from his face towards his back/shoulders and I kept having to adjust it so back to petco we went and got another soft collar like this one https://www.amazon.com/ZenPet-ProCon...3122354&sr=8-4 he did fine with it in the store but now after he's had his dinner and trying to settle down he's getting mad about it. I feel bad, I don't like that he has to have it on but I know it's for his own good I just hope and pray to God that by the time Friday morning comes around the vet says he's healed enough to take it off

    Ugh...I feel so bad for y'all and hope the same by Friday's visit.

    Yes, it IS for his own good and hang in there, Carolyn, don't give
    in! Can you crate him so he can't move around much? Had to do
    this with Cami for several weeks when she injured her leg & Vet
    said surgery!...it had to be or else...it was so hard to be firm but
    I made her stay in there except for feeding & potty. As a result,
    she healed & no surgery...Yay!

    Praying now that he settles down & Friday gets here asap and he's
    healed too. Hugs, my dear friend...xoxo

    RIP beloved boy.

    I was thinking of crating him but he hasn't been crated here since he was a puppy. Occasionally when my parents watch him he stays in my old room with the crate in it, the crate door is open but the bedroom door is closed and he does fine there but usually sleeps on my old bed. if he doesn't calm down by tomorrow evening I will probably crate him

    Oh Carolyn, so sorry you're both going through this! Can you give him Benadryl to calm him temporarily? Or maybe a thundershirt? I'm praying for you both! Love and hugs Susan

    Thanks @Jersey I am going to give him some Benadryl before bed. I don't know a whole lot about the thunder shirt but I do know he hates wearing clothing I might try calming composure supplements

    I,too bought one of those black "soft" collars. It was worse than the collar that comes from the vet-hot and dark. I am sorry you are having such trouble @CCandMurray but it won't be too much longer. If it is, ask your vet for something to calm Murray. Sending hugs for you and Murray.

    So sorry to hear Murray doesn't like the collar - hopefully he will be ok soon so he won't need it anymore! Castor sends his best wishes!

    "I am going to give him some Benadryl"


    Just read to NOT give this if having eye issues as it will
    dry out the eye too much.

    Makes sense & good advice, I'd never thought about it!

    Please give Murray kisses & soft hugs from Cami & me.

    Oh my goodness I never would have thought! I'd only given it to him the first few days fortunately because I ran out. I did give him some of those calming chews last night and am so glad I did because he slept like a rock! Going to give him some more before I leave for work. Thanks for thinking of us hope you have a great day
