OMG...no wonder he is freaking. That cone is huge. I had Seen others post saying they used something similar to this...21st Century Protective Inflatable Collars - Summer PETssentials - Dog - PetSmart. Not sure if he'd do better with this.

If we lived closer I'd let you borrow Wyatt's inflatable tube thing! Attachment 22615

If you don't wanna save the cone take sharp scissors and cut about 2-3" inches off the outside edge it prob freaks him out because it hits everything and hurt his ears.. Especially in his kennel..

With our next boxer when we fix her,
I'm gonna get the soft cone or inflatable tube those plastic ones are crappy and way too big especially when they wanna turn around in kennel the inflatable/soft ones are worth the money!!

Thanks so much for the offer. I called the vet and he said they sent him home with the bigger cone cause he kept getting at his incision with the smaller one.. I kept the cone off this afternoon them had to so some things so put it back on and out him in crate he bugged out again and got it off.. Just slid his head right out.. Now I have it off. We r good for now but I'm worried about when I go back to work Monday. I would go buy a soft one but we r snowed in right now and the store is 20 min away I'm not driving in this maybe tomorrow! They also advised Benadryl to calm h down a bit. Gonna give h some tonight before bed I need sleep..

OMG! That is the biggest cone I have ever seen. He is probably picking up satellite signals hee hee! Glad you found a solution!

They said 2 weeks.. We didn't make it 24 hours.. Lol He was a mess last night and this morning.. Then I took it off and he is back to his old self. Hyper as hell! He hasn't bothered his incision so that's good. I'm trying to keep him calm but we all know how that goes! LolPlease help-imageuploadedbypg-free1356824165.497136.jpg
