Could you use velcro to close it with so getting in and out would be easier? You can buy the stick on type for easy applying.
take a piece of foam rubber about 2inches thick depending on the size of your dog, measure it around his neck, then cover it with either a soft canvas or a strong curtain material, attach velcro to the ends and wrap this around his neck, fasten with the velcro, he wont be able to reach his sore spots, and it is far more comfortable then and Elizabethan pet collar. I often use this method for my Chows when they get hot spots or sores on their body or legs, it works and is not in the way of getting caught in doors or banging into furniture. Give it a try you will find your dog much more comfortable in it, good luck
He had scratched corneas. Don't know why. Probably because the distemper made his eyes flare up and he tried to relieve the itching. Is on meds.
I assume you're finding out the cause of the eye irritation? I would just leave the collar on most of the time since he'll duck around the corner and scratch when it's off and set the healing of the problem back. Do you know what's causing it?
