I'm glad you're committed to using the E-collar... good for you! It's also not surprising that Cooper has found a way around it. Applying a dressing to the wound while still leaving the collar on sounds like a great way to handle this problem. You'll just need to make sure you observe some fundamental principles of good bandaging:

  • make sure the bandage stays clean and dry
  • change the bandage at least once daily
  • change the bandage any time it becomes soiled or wet
  • make sure the bandage isn't too tight
  • make sure the bandage isn't air tight

These things are important because an improperly applied or poorly cared-for bandage can do more harm than good.

I do hope this information is helpful to you.
