Heh, when Sannabelle got spayed she didn't have to wear an e-collar. She didn't lick the stitches much, either, until the end.

she was groomed yesterday so she's not too stinkin'. i'm not worried about odors because it's not around her tush.

I've been lucky that I have never ever had to use a cone on a dog who had been spayed or neutered. And I was even luckier in that the three critters I have now were already fixed...whoo hooo!

Poor puppy! And she should NOT be ashamed of having to wear one...you're gonna give her complex if you say it out loud! :D

i couldn't take looking at this sad face any longer.




so i went to the dollar store and bought her a baby outfit that snaps at the bottom. cut a hole for her tail and no more cone and i can unsnap it when she needs to go outside.

yeah, well. i don't feel like dealing with the mess when they are in heat and even though she is never outside off a leash or unattended there are 2 intact pitbulls living next door and the owner isn't the best for watching his dogs.

also, escapes can happen when we have company so i err on the side of caution.

she is much happier now since i put the baby suit on her. i'm not one for dressing my dog but this has kept her from licking the incision.
