the Elizabethan collar

Sunday morning we woke to find Regina had an open sore on the top of one of her back paws. Upon closer inspection, it appeared to be a cyst that she had licked raw. Lovely, all around.

We had a fun trip to the emergency vet, where we learned that sometimes young dogs get these sort of cysts and that if it doesn’t go away on it’s own, she’d get to have surgery. But for now, ointment, antibiotics and.. drumroll please.. an Elizabethan collar. And yes, that is what they called it on the receipt.

She calls it hell.

Regina, in her Elizabethan collar Regina, in her collar
It’s kinda cute though.. she reminds me of Laura Ingalls from Little House on the Prairie, lol.

  5. i love when she would try to squeeze into a spot behind a chair or couch, only to become lodged. oh the laughter that would ensue. poor kitty. *snicker*

    luckily the summer here is not nearly as hot or humid. it’s nice actually. when it IS sunny that is.
