It does mush his ears down some. Will that be a problem for his ears?

I don't think it will cause a permeate problem, he has very strong ears

O.K. that's good, I suppose if you can give the ears 'breaks' that'll help too.

Time to invent a durable soft cone for our GSDs with those big ears!

Also....maybe check out Amazon, maybe able to get 2nd day shipping on some of these: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_0_13?url=search-alias%3Dpets&field-keywords=soft%20elizabethan%20collar%20for%20dogs&sprefix=soft+elizabet%2Caps%2C324

Gypsy left her stitches alone when she was spayed. The only thing that she dud bother, however, was the bandages around her front legs that were protecting her stitches from where her dew claws( is that correct spelling for those claws?) were removed. So no cone for her, but I think her stitches and staples that dissolved. I can't remember since it has been over for a long time now.

Haha I'm dealing with the same thing!!! Hernia repair but without neuter. We're clear for stopping crate rest tomorrow. I bought a soft cone from petco and the ace didn't help much. Good luck. Worst week of my life. Haha

I used a LOT of frozen raw bones, stuffed kongs, and beef tendons not to mention puzzles and games to keep him occupied. I learned very quickly he was not good at self regulating and tried the cone once and it was a total disaster so I never put it back on him. The tshirt or boxers idea was a great help when I couldn't supervise him

I did lots of quiet onleash walks around the backyard and house and he really likes massages so whenever he lay on the couch or was quiet I would massage him. I love the big rumbling huff when they're relaxing

I hope Zeus heals quickly, it's never fun that's for sure

Love the car pic!

ACE sometimes have the opposite effect on a dog - makes them more agitated, etc. Does he really need to be chemically sedated or will the other suggestions of distracting work? If he does, ask your vet to hit the VIN for a tramadol combo with another med like Trazadone to see if it would be appropriate and safe for him.

You definitely need to leash him - shorten the leash - use a four foot leash or a traffic lead - hold the leash tighter - and keep him restricted or you will be yet another poster on this forum with seromas (or worse) in the area of the incisions. I have never seen anything like it!
