Beau's in a Cone!!!

Not sure what happened. Monday I noticed a very small bump below his right eye. Tried putting some Polysporin on it, but it didn't change -- except to get bigger! Took him to the vet this afternoon. She thinks it looks like trauma -- and looks like he's been rubbing it, because there is hair loss around the sore and around the eye. And so, even though I'm so prepared for an emergency that I have a blow up collar just in case (thinking to avoid a cone at all costs) -- the cone it is. Vet says it's the only thing to keep him from getting to his eye or rubbing it on something like furniture. My poor baby . . . he tolerates the cone faaaaarrrrr better than I would!! She also started him on Clavamox and wants me to give him 12.5 mg of Benadryl twice a day. Any ideas on if we are missing something?? I never saw him get hurt or rub it at all and we're together 24/7!

I don't have any ideas but I can tell just from the pictures that Beau is handling his cone MUCH better than Bear did last night!! Bear refused to even lift his head or move. Then he attempted to take the cone off and got his jaw stuck. So, blow up collar it is! It helps but not quite as effective as the cone. I hope Beau's eye heals soon!

Poor Beau, I hope he feels better soon. Timmy had an eye incident also, scratched cornea a while back and I had no idea how that happened either. It seems eye issues clear up quickly so hopefully between the meds and dreaded cone he'll be back to himself before you know it. Looks like you got him in quick and it didn't let it go to long.

Aw. Poor little guy! I know what that's like. My guys have been in cones often. It sucks when they try to use the dog door! Hang in there Beau

Aw, poor Beau. He looks so pathetic but also cute in the dreaded cone. What an adorable little face.

How's he doing today? Poor guy! We've never had to put one in a cone, thank goodness, because I can't imagine how annoying they must be.
