Be careful of her trying to rub her face on the ground past the edge of the cone--Ridge learned that trick while she was healing. :frustrating: The thing that seemed to help the most with the itching was painkillers. NSAIDs just seem to help them relax--they take the edge off. Maybe your vet can make a suggestion? It does sound like she's healing well, though. Have the lesions along her back dried up, as well?
