Hi, Our kitten has had an undescended testicle and we've been waiting for four months but it refused to drop. He loves the outdoors so we thought it best to wait as it's a bigger op. After he started roaming and getting into fights we decided it was probably time to accept the bigger op. It was a good job we did as the little fella was so high up it would never have dropped. Anyhow the vet issued an (Elizabethan) e-collar. Ok it stops the cat from licking the wound but it also pretty much stops him from functioning as a cat. He can't groom, eat properly, get inside his enclosed cat litter, mark his territory with scent glands in the neck, etc, etc, etc. After day 5 and seeing him so depressed and fed up we took it off. Wow what a difference, after a few hours he was so much happier. Yes he did lick the incision site as part of cleaning but no apparent harm done. So my question is, in this modern age, with smart materials and advanced chemical science isn't it possible to create a spray on smart dressing that sticks like skin, is tough, supports the wound and lets it breathe and dissolves after 10 days so that animals can be themselves in that time? Come on science our pets need your help for a better quality of life! Indeed it would also help many humans too! Anyone any ideas?
