well I went to work for 2 hours this morning, came back to Axel with his cone no longer on and blood on the left over cone. He chewed his cone off, and ate the string and maybe 1/4 of the cone. I'm stressed and nervous for the outcome. We just came from the vets. They gave us high fiber food to help compact all the plastic shards and in hopes to compact the string so it doesn't do any damage. Now a waiting game to see if the string comes out.
