Sadie was spayed on Friday and she wouldn't stop licking her incision. So, today she's sporting an e-collar. Needless to say, she hates it! I've tried everything to get her to calm down, but nothing seems to be working (including her pain medication and bitter apple). Since she will be home alone tomorrow and there are many stairs in the house (not easy to maneouver while wearing an e-collar, I'd imagine), I've put her in a dimmed room but she just won't relax. She's pacing, crying and simply wants out of the room and the collar NOW. It's even worse when I take the collar off so she can eat as she doesn't want it back on her head. Does anyone have any suggestions?
