Jazz did the same thing, to the point that she infected the incision, requiring an emergency trip to my Vet. It was the weekend, and she was kind enough to meet me at her clinic so I wouldn't have to go to an e-vet. Even the smallest cone was too big for her, and the one the techs tried to retro-fit just wouldn't stay on. It didn't help that Jazz was determined to get that sucker off lol! :D

Vet finally gave me some stuff to rub AROUND, not ON, the incision site. It was a bright orange paste, dried to a chalky white. It tasted HORRIBLE! I mean just gawd-awful! I know, because I tasted a tiny bit just to see. Uuugggghhhh!!! Jazz thought so to. She went after her incision right after I'd applied it (once I let it dry) and one lick was enough! Poor thing was working her mouth, drinking, pawing at her snout, trying to do ANYTHING to get that awful taste to go away. It worked though. That one lick convinced her to leave it alone. It healed beautifully after that. If you can't keep your dog away from the incision, perhaps you could ask your vet about that paste?
