Post Surgery Licking

Monday, August 29, 2016
posted by Jim Murphy

dogeliaxcollarAfter your dog has surgery such as being spayed, it’s important to keep her from licking the wound because she could remove her stitches or cause an infection. Unfortunately, dogs instinctively want to lick their wounds so you may need to take some precautions. If bandages and topical pet medication and products don’t do the trick, try an Elizabethan collar. This is cone shaped and fits onto your dogs collar wrapping around her head like an upside down lampshade. Your dog may find this contraption bothersome but it will help keep her from licking and aggravating her incision site. To make the situation less stressful, you can remove the collar when you are able to keep an eye on her. Make sure he has a comfortable dog bed or dog crate to recover in and an occasional dog treat will always help him feel better!
