Our last vet in CT was very anti-cone so it may be that the vet Myles is seeing just isn't a fan of them. I admit I'm not either, but when Calvin had the gland rupture I can't imagine how I would have kept him away from that area otherwise. You can buy them at petstores if you want to try one on him. We took Calvin's off so he could eat and go potty, but otherwise left it on him. Poor guy is so short he'd get stuck on the carpet when we first put it on him and I hated it so much, he was so sad.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
