Terrified of the E-Collar!! Help!!

Jax and Baron got into a fight last nite. Baron has about 15 staples. Some in his shoulder, in his leg and on his rear. He is terrified of the e-collar. I mean frozen and shaking terrified....any suggestions on how to keep him from tearing out the staples?

Tea Tree Oil Mixture - he licked that right off
T-Shirt - Will protect the shoulder but I dont' think he can reach that anyways.
E-Collar - Wanna see a dog panic?

Re: Terrified of the E-Collar!! Help!!

First off - poor pups and poor you! I hate dog fights - so traumatic for everyone involved.

I also kind of hate e-collars. I know they're often necessary but so many dogs freak out in them and even when they don't they're always banging into everything. I know this isn't much help because I can't remember the name but isn't there a sort of low profile collar that keeps the dog from bending their neck around but isn't as big and obstructive as the e-collar? I could swear I've seen pics of something like that.

Can you distract him with something else to occupy his mouth (like a frozen Kong or something)?

Re: Terrified of the E-Collar!! Help!!

Is the collar clear, or the white one that you can't see through? I found going up to petco/petsmart and gettting a clear one made all the difference.

They do have other types of collars, like the inflatable donuts, and the bitenot collars.

eta: forgot to say, sorry about the fight and the injuries...no fun for any of you

It's clear. He is so neurotic. He just sat there and shook. So I walked with him and every time he hit something he came unglued.

i saw those inflatable collars. Petsmart should have them. Do they work? It has to block him from getting to his lower leg and rear hip.

Nina had one of those. She liked it, used it like a pillow!

It was so she couldn't reach her back legs. She was not very determined, so it worked. But it might be a calming thing for him too.

It didn't help Max, but I can't remember why I used it? Oh, for his fistula - he's long enough that he could still reach his butt.

It worked for Indy.

Re: Terrified of the E-Collar!! Help!!

I'm thinking it should stop him from being able to turn enough to get to his rear and should block him from getting to his leg to

...that is until Jax thinks he has one of her toys around his neck.

I don't have any idea what started it. Did not see any toys, bones in the area so I don't think it was resource guarding but she has been acting funky since I was in the hospital a couple weeks ago.
