Using a cone

Ok so our girl's incision from her being spayed is slightly infected and the new vet we went to wants her to wear a cone so she doesn't lick it. Never had to use one before. When we go anywhere we have to put her in her cage but we always took off her collar when in there. Do you think she will be ok in there with her cone left on? Her collar goes through the bottom part of the cone.

Re: Using a cone

I would leave the collar on, her crate is where she will need the most, being alone in there she will be even more tempted to lick her wound. Dogs in cages in vets offices stay in there with the collars on, I wouldn't think of them as being dangerous.

Re: Using a cone

I didn't like leaving the cone on in the crate, but I did. I did make sure I had a see through cone that I bought from Petsmart or petco, the vet just had those solid ones. I was able to use the cone without the collar.

Re: Using a cone

If you're really concerned I like these a lot. They're pretty comfortable and less likely to cause panic in the dog because they can still see.
