The Lamp Shade Cometh!

Officially called an Elizabethan collar, often referred to as a cone, e-collar, space collar or lampshade, Vinson had his first experience with one last night. I awoke around 4:00 a.m. to the sound of licking in Vinson's crate near our bed. I turned the light on to find that he had managed to pull a small piece of padding from behind his newly padded leg wrap. I managed to get the padding out of his mouth in an incident that made him look like Santa Claus temporarily!

So, it was time to try out the e-collar; we hadn't needed it to date because Vinson hadn't been licking or chewing at his cast. The Seeing Eye provided us with a nice, soft e-collar made by KVP. Vinson took to it with no problem - didn't whine or fuss and slept fine in it. I'll post a photo soon - between his orange leg and teal cone, he's quite a site - something akin to a flower. Quite funny to watch him walking through the house in full costume!
