Sadly, Zeus is being subjected to the cone of shame until we can get his skin under control. As soon as it starts to get better, he goes crazy OCD and tears himself apart. This is in no way a permanent solution or 'easy way out' for me, but the vet agreed that it would be beneficial to use when I'm away for a few weeks or so. Thankfully, he seems to be pretty ok with it all, and he seems to recognize the cone means no chewing on himself because he has yet to try. The first cone I got was too 'short' and left too much of his snoz out, so I got the next side up. However, even with the XXL, I think he is still capable of getting his back legs. The problem is that he has really bad wet neck which messes up positioning the collar, and the collar will slowly fall down his long neck, allowing his munchers freedom to munch. Does anyone have recommendations for securing it in place with another collar etc? Even with training collars, flat collars, and loops, I have the issue with his wet neck. I have to put collars excessively tight to keep them in place, and then if they slide down any it will be too tight in the middle of his neck. He just has way too much skin where his actual neck is at the smallest.
