Is using cone really effective? I tried it on my dog and idk i felt like he's uncomfortable. I saw this online Lick Sleeve do you think it's a good alternative for a cone?I helped with my daughter's non Vizsla, after his knee surgery. It's a lot of crate rest, and a band around their waist to slowly walk them to potty.
Make sure your dog only walks on non slippery surfaces. If you have hardwood or tile floors, you need to put down rugs.
A huge wire crates work best. Remember your dog's to be wearing some type of cone. You want them to be able to easily turn around in the crate with it on. Go with a firm pad in it. The thick fluffy ones make it harder for them to navigate. Your going to be asked to ice the knee for swelling. I would start practicing this before the surgery, as most dogs don't care for it. Buy a lot of long lasting chews. Your going to need them.
Keep a eye out for stomach issues.
Your dog will be on a NSAID, and they are known to cause problems in some dogs.
Hi! I remember our vet also recommended this to us! Our experience was great, it did a really good job! but it was expensive because of the fabric that was used
