Harper is having surgery Friday!

Hi all!

So my little guy is having surgery on Friday (neutered). Does anyone have any suggestions on how to keep his area clean? I hate to keep the cone on him.

Any suggestions would be great.

Thank you!

We just went through this in August. Keeping the surgery area clean was no problem but keeping him from licking the area was definitely a challenge. Gambler HATED the cone so I bought a donut shaped collar which was better but he was finally able to lick. I next tried a pair of jockey shorts from my husband on Gambler with his tail through the fly area. That worked great. Good luck!

The licking is the problem. They all hate the cone but its the best way to guarantee quick healing. They heal so fast its not that big of a deal. Play it safe keep the cone
