poor baby.  how big is he? we put a baby’s onesie on our dog at night to protect her stitches after her spay.  much more comfortable than the cone of shame.

He’ll heal pretty quickly, you’d be surprised! Good luck, he looks so sweet~!!!

Oh, isn’t he a cutie. Poor boy! Sounds like you two are doing all you need for him though, so it sounds like he just has the best family. Hope he feels better soon!

Awe, feel better Buster!  A tank top works pretty well to keep pups away from stitches.  When I’ve had to put one on ours (she gets hot spots, too), I’ll gather it up on her back and tie it with a hair tie so it’s not loose on the bottom.  If you use something long but tight-ish (like a guy’s white tank), you might not need that.  They have inflatable cones, too – might be cheaper than a new crate!

@howtobeawife:  Awww… this broke my heart!! He is SO cute!! I’m glad that surgery went well – hope he is feeling better soon!! When my dog had to be put under for a minor foot surgery, he just looked so pathetic when we picked him up… those big groggy eyes were just so sad!!!

Try putting the long tube socks on his back legs and pull them up above his ‘knees/elbows’ and then tape around the top of them (obviously not on his hair) – this will keep them on there tighter and hopefully keep him from squirming them off.

Aww I hope he feels better soon 🙁 Sounds like he has a great mama and daddy taking care of him though!

We dealt with the same thing when Toby swallowed a rubber ball. Cone of shame and everything. He was back to himself in a week.
