our 5 1/2 month old has just been spayed, and while she was in we had her dewclaws (rear) removed and a micro-chip implanted (big day!). needless to say, she's trying to get at her stitches and the lampshade collar doesn't prevent her from reaching her rear feet. any advice as to an alternate method of restriction? constant supervision is our current solution, but we both work days so we need something else. we're considering a muzzle, but we've never used one and we're not sure 1) if it'll work, 2) if it'll have any negative repercussions, or 3) if she's safe alone in her crate with a muzzle on. thanks...
