They did shave the underside along where the collar was, You can see it in one of the photos , His neck is still swollen really good from it. There is also no treatment for the other. Looking at the paper work it's called " Claviclular Fractures" .The Er Vet said there is no treatment for it, Just to leave it as is & give medication to ease pain & slow his movement down as much as I could.
