Neck wrap for e-tube
I searched to see if this topic had been covered before but couldn't come up with anything. I know this is a common problem for people who have cats with e-tubes (esophagostomy feeding tubes) so I thought I'd post a thread and see if anyone had any ideas. If this has been previously discussed, I apologize!
My cat had an e-tube inserted three months ago and is doing very well. So well, in fact, that she is constantly messing with the wrap (I can hear her upstairs scratching at it now! Oh, wait, now she's playing with her scratching toy -- pretty amazing for a 17ish-year-old cat with renal failure!). The big struggle is to find a wrap that will keep her from pulling out the tube (which she has done twice) but still be comfortable and not too tight. I have experimented with everything I can think of, but no luck. After having to take her in to the emergency room Sunday to have the tube resutured, I thought I'd better get busy finding a solution. Anyone have any suggestions??
