Zeke just had the dreaded neuter on Tuesday, he's doing pretty well though it is heart breaking to see him uncomfortable or disoriented as he was the first 24 hours home. Each hour that he shows more of his "happy" and "normal" self is a celebration! Though keeping him from running, jumping and playing for 10 days will be a big challenge!
Anyway, I saw many people on here suggest a onesie instead of a cone. Since there is such good advice on here I went that route. However, when searching the forum all I saw was reference to a onesie, but didn't know what to get. Did that mean go to Target's baby section and get a baby onesie? Thanks to my friend Amazon I solved that puzzle myself. To help others in the future here's the two options I purchased:
this SurgiSnuggly is nice in that it is very thin, looser fitting around the neck and legs, fully adjustable to your dog's size/shape, and easy to remove the back and tuck it in the pocket when they go out to use the restroom. Cons are some of the same - the looser legs means if he tries hard enough he could get to the incision, and the thinness has the same concern. While adjustable is awesome, that is accomplished with velcro which scares many puppies, especially on their back!
This one, the Suitical Recovery Suit:
Is the one we are using most. It fits him well, is easy to take off on the back end when needed, and has more coverage that he can't work around. He also seems more comfortable in this, though that could be that we started using this on day 3 when he's generally more comfortable now anyway.
Hope this helps someone going down this path in the future. Oh and if you have a female you can get colors other than cammo blue.
Thankfully it helped us avoid the dreaded cone, even when he's sleeping at night in his crate!
