Boxer shorts size?

Yuki will be neutered in two weeks, and I'm wondering if anyone can recommend what size boxer shorts to buy for a 1 year old, 75 pound golden? I'd like to have some on hand in case we need them.

Maybe a men's large? Molly was 50 lbs when she needed briefs and I think she was a small in men's.

I don't know about sizes... I would measure his waist at the narrowest point, find a size chart in the children's department and guess. You want them snug but not tight. Shouldn't irritate the surgical site.

I would say kids sizes. Their waists are narrow. I don't know though...you can always safety pin if they are too big. Measure, I agree.

Oh and why does he need them?

That's right, boxer shorts are more loose. Kids' might work. Kids' briefs didn't work for Molly.. Way too tight in the legs and waists.

I wanted to have some in case we decide to dispense with the cone at some point before he is fully healed.
Thanks, everyone, for your responses.

My only advise is to get some really cute ones and post a pic later. Seriously I hope it all goes well. I'll be thinking of him.

That is a new idea to me! Sawyer never needed a cone (or anything) when he was neutered. Our vet said some dogs never bother with the incision and just just give him a couple of days and then if needed, we could get a cone. He never showed any interest in licking or irritating the incision. I guess we were lucky. They recover pretty quickly I find.

Thanks again, everyone! I'll try a pair of my husband's on Yuki (when he's not looking!), and go from there. I probably won't use them, but I'm kind of an over-planner.

Tucker was licking on the incision from the moment he woke up after surgery. . Bella has not been interested.

They're are different; pays to be prepared.
