Maria’s Dog Olive Is Wearing ‘The Cone Of Shame’

p8220023 Marias Dog Olive Is Wearing The Cone Of Shame

I took my dog Olive to the vet yesterday.  She had some kind of UGG (unidentified gross growth) on her paw between her toes.  My vet thought that maybe she got a cactus spine between her toes and it got infected.  He gave her some antiboitics and was going to wrap her paw.  After closer examination, he found infections on BOTH her BACK paws too. 
Olive now has three of her four paws wrapped and she must wear the ‘Cone Of Shame.’

    Maria,

    I’m sorry to hear about Olive’s problems.

    I’m thinking decorations may be a bad idea. You don’t want any of them (stickers, ink, etc.) ingested by Olive or her mates.

    The cones are awful. When our cat had problems a year ago she freaked out when we tried to put the plastic cone on her. I read about and found an inflatable ring for pets (kind of like a kid’s pool floaty) that fit wonderfully. She was able to live, eat, sleep and recover from her surgery without stress. I don’t know if Olive is too big for it but it might be an alternative to the cone. I don’t remember which pet supply store we bought it from but you can look on line at the big two and I think you’ll find it if you’re interested.
