    Default Inflatable Dog Recovery Collar

    My 4-month-old Great Dane pup while on a walk got attacked by a dog who escaped his yard. My guy ended up with 12 stitches on a front leg in an easy lick zone.

    He has a plastic recovery cone that is very uncomfortable.

    When our cat was spayed she got an inflatable collar instead of a cone.

    The only inflatable recovery collars I can find in the DR are small.

    I need a large.

    So by any chance does anyone have an inflatable recovery collar I could buy or borrow? I can get one online but it would take at least a week to get here, and my boy could use one now.

    if it's not on a paw itself but higher on the leg you may consider a sweater, sort of. get cheap ass long sleeve that will fit him in a second hand store or a flea market and cut it up to fit the doggie without covering too much of the body itself (heat). apparently dressing up your pet instead of using a cone of shame is all the rage now.

    The vet wants the wound open. He gave him a sliver anti-fungal/anti-bacterial paste that sort of hardens somewhat and seals the wound. He wants the wound open.

    The cone works, but is terribly uncomfortable...and freaks out the other three dogs.

    With the cone he's like a cat with a bell: we know where he is because the cone constantly bumps into things.

    What about a pool noodle cut up in smaller pieces with the collar looped in it? Haven't tried it on mine but saw it online...

    How about a passola inner tube if you have a portable pump ?

    They adjust to the cone
    My Boxer puppy had one for 10 days
    But it’s no fun

    I thought of that, but the valve would be a problem.

    Very interesting. Our pool noodles are solid, so may take some extra planning. Maybe drill a big hole in the middle of the pieces and run a thick string through it.
