Believe me I want to use that collar but the dork in me can't really figure out the easiest way to get it back on her. I know as she starts to heal more it is going to itch and she will be trying to get at it. I just realized that there is probably a video on youtube that will show me how to get it back on. But (and I've already searched the gear blog) does anyone have recommendations for another option? Why not just a little muzzle?
She is doing great today. Ate her breakfast (gave her about 1/2 of normal) had her am meds and then went out and .... wait for it.... a poop!! Her 2nd day post op. I am so proud of my little tripawd.

You are so funny! Are the short sides lined with velcro? If so, just peel apart, wrap around her neck and re-seal the velcro.
A nicely healing doesn't always itch. You can get anti-itch spray at the pet supply store that should help avoid any itching.
YAY FOR POOP! Two days post-op is fantastic!!!

Glad to hear she is doing so well!
My quad pug Obie had two knee surgeries and because of his history he did not deal well with a traditional cone. I used the donut type cone on him and it worked really well. I also used some little pants I modified to cover up his incisions. Of course he has a relatively short pug nose and a short body and he could not reach his knees with it on.
Some here have used boxer shorts on rear amps to cover up the incision, the tail goes through the fly.
Poop already! whoo hoo!
