I had my eleven month old cairn terrier spayed on Monday and she is wearing a collar and hates it and will not walk in it. She has eaten and drunk water when I carry her to it, and I also carry her out to the garden. I took her back to the vets and they said she was depressed, as she's usually very lively. Her temperature is normal, she has no pain or discomfort apart from the stitches, she hates the collar. I took the collar off once and she went straight for her stitches so had to put it back on. Has anyone any experience of this or any advice, because my wonderful little dog breaks my heart everytime I look at her. Thank you.
