It wasn't until 6.30am that we decided to let Cow have his "independence". It's been so long and last night, I could see he was already scratching everywhere. The vet said "3 days" and today is the third day.
Here we go, Cow...
You've been such a good boy, Cow!
Ooh...a nice long scratch!
He didn't rub his eyes (only a little bit), he was more busy grooming his paws and scratching his neck. So the vet was absolutely right. It does take about 3 days after the removal of stitches for the eye to open fully and the itching from the stitches to be minimal.
Eating without the collar, after 25 days!
Enjoy your breakfast to the fullest without having to adjust with the e-collar, Cow!
Chomp it all up!
And drinking water without the collar too.
Throughout the 25 days, I made sure the water bowl was filled to the brim at all times so that Cow could drink more easily with the collar on.
More grooming on his favourite springy bed.
Let everyone see your pretty eyes, Cow.
There we go.
Cow says "thank you very, very much" for all your moral support and kind prayers!
Goodbye, Necky! Thank you for helping Cow heal.
