Santos got snipped.

Santos was neutered yesterday, and is doing fine. He slept more than usual when he got home yesterday, and I gave him his pain medication last night.

Check this out...the vet said not to worry about cleaning the incision...Santos would take care of that. What happened to the cone of shame?? He said that they're dissolvable stitches, so there's nothing outside that he can lick off? I thought they were never supposed to mess with the incision.

Kim, Santos & Brew

My two boys were castrated last month and the same thing, no cone. When they would start to lick I would tell them a stern NO and they stopped. I had to take one of them back in for stitches removal from his hernia repair. I could have done that myself! So glad Santos is doing well. He is black and white like my Einstein.

Awww recover quickly! I would also think that even dissolvable, a dog could still hurt the incision area? But none of my babies have had stiches in about 5 years.

When Izzo got neutered he had regular stitches. We were not told to clean them, just to let them be and try to keep Izzo from messing with them too much. Vet did not give him a cone either. He did great. I had to fuss at him a few times but for the most part, he left them alone. Hope Santos recovers quickly!!!! Did you see we may be getting some snow flurries this weekend??? I hope that's true!!

Awww Santos was bar mitvahed... He's a little man. I never heard of not to worry about them licking the incision either, and I think our boys had invisible stitches too. But as long as he is AOK that's all that matters.
