Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
I am so sorry to see that no one has reached out to you before now. How is your companion doing at this current time? Any changes?
Does he return to the same personality if you replace the cone?
The jumping and agitated action may be due to phantom pains that come along with a surgery of this kind and with injury, as well. He may have felt some comfort or separation from these pains with the collar on but without the collar is realizing that nothing is touching him or in any manner causing stimulation which may be frightening.Because the sutures are out and he can go back to almost regular activity, try rubbing/massaging the limb a few times a day with mild vigor and encouraging him to exercise with low impact options like walking, playing with toys on the floor, etc. Getting back to regular activity may assist him in overcoming the sensations that accompany healing. If this persists, you may want to talk to your vet about cold laser therapy for him.
