|Thanks for all the replies! Here's an update:
He's done really well so far! My husband and I ended up buying a dog kennel to keep him in. As soon as we got him home from the vet, it was evident that he was just too excited to stay calm! We did have to keep the e-collar on him until the stitches came out (yesterday). As soon as we took it off, he would go for his stitches! I bought wipes, to bathe him every day, since he couldn't clean himself. He took his antibiotics like a champ, because it meant a nice bowl of wet food would quickly follow!
Up until a few days ago, he refused to use his litter box, eat, or drink in his kennel. So we let him out of the kennel for meals, litter box time, and snuggles (we've had him since he was 8 weeks old, and he's extremely affectionate and loving). Curtains over the window only encouraged him to try to climb the curtains! LOL We put a low foot stool right under the window. We knew he was going to jump in it (blinds and curtains are no deterrents!), so we figured that a low stool would be better than the window sill.
The vet says that he's healing perfectly and doesn't seem to be in any pain or have any problems walking on it. We supposed to keep him in the kennel for another 2 months (gasp! that's so long!!!). We're doing everything we can to listen to vet, but still give him monitored time out of the kennel. He gets his pins out in November... I don't know who will be happier!
