Poor Chloe gets depressed with the cone. She just stays on the floor. From time to time, I take it off to feed her, give her water, and clean her face. When she starts to lick near her site, I put it back on. She is sweet, and still likes to put her face next to mine....technically her cone-face.

I did some research, and I bought two "Pro-Collars". I think this will be a better option for Chloe and Fiona so that they can go about normal things without the sensory deprivation of the cone. Chloe has 8 more days left until she gets her stitches removed.

Fiona has her surgery tomorrow. It will be harder for her because she has to have surgery on both hips. This all happened pretty close together--and the vet thinks that because Fiona and Chloe are sisters and litter mates, there might be a genetic factor as to why they both are 20 months and having hip problems at the same time.
