alternatives to the cone of shame post surgery for dogs
Apr 7, 2021
has anyone who's big dog has had rear knee surgery found an alternative to the cone of shame, or used the inflatable dog collar or the Lick Sleeve?
has anyone used the "Help me up" dog harness to help get their dog in and out of their car?Has anyone used the Animal Surgical and Orthopedic center in Shoreline north of Seattle for knee surgery on their dog?
Any feedback would be helpful. text 206 372-8907
