Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
Bella has had to have a minor op yesterday to remove a couple of sebaceous cysts (one on tail and a tiny one on her back) and it did not all go as smoothly as it could. Apparantly she came out of the anaesthetic very quickly and got a fright and had a "freak out" (as they called it) at the vets so they gave her some Valium. Last night was awful and I now have a pooch who is petrified and won't leave either my husband or I alone, but that is a whole other issue to address rather than the reason for this post.
We have been given a Size 3 Elizabethan Collar and a Size 3 Comfy Collar to prevent her getting at her stiches however neither seem to be doing the job as she is well able to reach the tail one and with a bit more of an effort can reach the one on her back. She has the Comfy Collar on as she really reacted to the Elizabethan one, and it gives us that vital second to stop her successfully reaching her stitches but clearly means one of us must be with her at all times.
So my question is - does anyone have any recommendations for a product that may fit/work better on a Setter (these are both the right size for her neck but don't seem to come out far enough to prevent access)? Come Monday my husband will need to be at work and there will be occasions where I can't keep my eyes on her for every second and I am already dreading it.
