Chase aka “King of the Cone” had a toe amputated for biopsy in November. After letting it heal thoroughly for over a month he has decided to lick it to the point of almost reopening the wound. After a $281 bill at the vets for steroid and antibiotic shots he’s now been back in the “Cone of Shame” at some point everyday.
Poor baby. This makes me sad.
have the spot rechecked for cancer! My brothers puppy found 2 spots on his older dog that he licked constantly. Vet knew before he checked that they were cancerous. You may have already done that, but better safe than sorry!
Maybe it’s just me, but it seems pretty wrong to shame anyone who has had amputation for a biopsy. 🙁 Hang in there bud.
Sadly, that may never stop. I have heard of people that lost a limb and the felt it itching or tingling like it was still there. Hope it does though.
rather than the cone have you tried using a ‘bootie’…google Muttluk dog booties
