    Poor Rex. Give him a big cuddle from us I hope he gets some sleep tonight ( and you too!). Hopefully he'll feel better in the morning

    Rex is a lot better today but it's going to be a while before he's back to himself. His eyes look a lot better, they have stretched a bit and look more natural. He slept all night and was awake early this morning wiggling his bum trying to hug us (which hurts when they've got a buster collar on!!!)

    He's still whining a bit every so often, I think its the itch from the wound. We caught him a while ago rearranging the cushions on the sofa so he could get the corner of them one into the collar and have a good rub, so we'll have to keep a close eye on him.

    Thanks Pauline, I'm fine today, I was very stressed and worried yesterday but I know in a few days it'll all be worth it! We'll have a happier doggie

    Good to hear you are both doing better today, it's very stressful when they're not well.

    Chelle, I'm so glad to hear that Rex is doing well. I hope you're feeling a bit better today too! If he's organising cushions to suit himself then he must be getting back to his old self!

    I had to take the cushions off the couch, he figured out how arrange them so he could rub his eyes on them - a big no no.

    He's back to himself, but hating the buster collar which has to stay on for 2 wks. His eyes are starting to open up a lot more and look a lot more natural but I think as they are healing they are getting itchy.
    But his ears....they've gotten so matted from the collar - I'll never get those knots out Has anyone else had this problem when using the buster collar? If so how did ye prevent the matting (he has to keep the collar on all the time as he keeps trying to get at his eyes)

    Poor thing though that he hates the buster collar and he has to put up with it for so long.

    How clever is he??!! Great to hear he is starting to get better, you must be relieved..

    I cant really give any advise on the knots, only I suppose to try to brush that area every day, twice even if you have to.
