Alternative to e-collar after spay
Lucy was spayed today and I had bought her a soft e-collar from amazon to use instead of the hard plastic one. While it's soft and make of a nylon material, the boning in it makes it feel heavy. Lucy does not pick her head up off the floor with it on and will not move. She's only 5 lbs so I wonder if it's just too heavy for her little neck to handle. I was thinking of getting her a onesie for when I can supervise her. But I'm looking to run to petsmart tomorrow afternoon to find something else that can prevent her from licking/biting the incision site when I can't supervise her. Does anyone have any suggestions for something I can pick up at the store tomorrow that is lighter in material and she may tolerate more?
