    Default Cone?

    Hi all. Tank is being neutered today and they told me they suggest a collar after surgery so he can't get to his parts. Now he cannot reach his parts to groom himself as it is. So to cone or not to cone? Can some please share ur experience w your dogs, I'd really appreciate it.... Thanks

    I didnt cone my boys after being neutered because of that same thing. They couldn't reach so why bother. So long as you can keep him calm and watch him I would think he should be fine without one.

    Lily had her cone on for about two days then we took it off and kept an eye on her.
    But she can't reach that area. So she was fine.

    I got the cone for Herschel just in case but like all the other responses... he couldn't reach the site nor did he try. I just watched him to make sure he didn't do a sit and spin or anything like that lol.

    Bacon didn't wear a cone either, we just needed to stop him from jumping up on the couch and going up and down stairs. Let's just say I was getting quite a work out carrying 55 lbs of squirming bully up and down the stairs several times a night

    Brutus had to wear it throughout the day for almost 1 week or so He had another procedure on his private along with the neutur so that was the only thing that kept him calm. He was supposed to be crated and I felt bad leaving him in a crate all day while we were home It was hard.

    With just the neutur I wouldnt think you would need it at all since our bullies cant really get to it

    I don't see why you should make him so uncomfortable for no reason. After Usko had his bladder surgery we didn't cone him just for the reason that he couldn't reach his wound anyway.

    Do they send pain meds or is there anything I can give him for pain. I want this to be as painless as possible, but I know some vets don't give take home pain meds....:/

    I definitely used a cone when I wasn't home, if I was able to watch him I didn't. I bought one of the comfy cones though, I didn't make him wear the hard plastic one the vet gave me.

    No cone for my guys neither. Can't reach...lol. You would think your vet would know this. I have yet to see a bully that can reach...lol, Daizy's got a long tongue and she couldn't reach if she tried. Your vet should go over all of this with you. Is it a bully vet?

    It was a technician I spoke with due to certain circumstances (being currently on disablity) I went through the low cost spay neuter program. Please don't judge me,it's just what We decided since I felt we needed to get it done now due to raging hormones.i did ask and they use isoflurane and was told they take extra precautions w English bulldogs and they get extra care due to their breed. I'm already a nervous wreck and he's due for pick up at 3pm. Anyone get pain meds after their dogs surgery?
