Neutering & wearing cone - how long?

how long did your dog need to wear a cone to prevent excessive licking (biting) after surgery (neutering in our case).

my 7.5 m/o Golden is on his 7th day & looks like he'll need the cone a few more. He's doing fine healing, but take cone off he won't leave it alone - we took him to vet today & all is normal (except his worries)

Sadie (lab) is being a real s*** to him cuz she hate that cone


oops - I thought I posted this on lab forum -- you guys are probably sick of hearing my woes about Bridger & I was going for new opinions

Brady wore his cone for about a week. He never seemed overly interested in licking himself, so we were comfortable de-coning him.

None of our males ever wore a cone.

None of our females did either........

I only had Brady wear his cone for three days. We probably removed it 2 days earlier than we should have. He did lick a lot, but by 7 days he was pretty much healed. He had glue, not stiches.

an update: so far 7 days -- took him to vet yesterday and he's to wear it for 7 more days ---- that'll be 14 days in the cone! he's healing ok, but licks it like crazy whenever we give him a break from the cone.

Depends on the dog. Shadow didn't have to wear the cone at all. He never bothered the area after being neutered. I was so lucky with him.
