Default post-neutering recommendations

Hello,

Our adult poodle is getting neutered this Tuesday. Could anyone recommend post-procedure tricks to avoid infections, minimize pain and problems, and improve recovery? I am sure the vet will have some, but I love the collective wisdom this forum offers.
Thank you!

The most important piece of advice......keep his cone on! Don't risk him licking his incision open! Otherwise it's just a matter of letting it heal...I've never had a male dog have complication from neutering!

My males have come home acting like nothing happened. But yes they will try to lick it so keep the cone on them even though they hate it.

You can also use boys' underwear to protect the incision.

Sushi was neutered 9 days ago and because I had total confidence in my vet (I have been going there for 20 years) I did not ask questions about the procedure or anything. It was a big error, Sushi came back with regular external stiches so badly done and tight that he could not sit or walk correctly even after 3 days. In our case the cone was not an option because he would fight so hard to remove it with his front and rear legs that it was dangerous for his incision to open. Thanks to this forum for the boy's underware tip! It would even calm him down for some reason.

Sushi removed one stich 4 days after his surgery, a second one 6 days after and the last one 7 days after but we were lucky because his incision did not open at all. In fact he felt lot better after removing them specially the first one that was so tight it would stwist his skin.

My suggestion to you is to ask your vet what type of stiches he will be using. If I would have knowed better I would have asked for the "hard to chew" type like in this article http://www.poodleforum.com/newreply....treply&t=23145

Also ask for a 24 hours pain killer, it does help alot.
