Poor Kody. I had him neutered day before yesterday and he's really hating me right now mad Not only is he uncomfortable, but that cone is making things so much worse.

I tried the donut we had here but it was too beat up so I ordered a new one and had it delivered yesterday. Unfortunately, he's so long he can reach the area with it on so I had to go back to the cone.

I feel awful as he wants nothing to do with me now teary

Doe's anyone have any hints on making this easier for him? They didn't give me any pain meds but he seems so uncomfortable that I've given him a low dose Tramadol.

I think he's playing you. Neuters are pretty fast healing and it's usually a fight to keep them calm by this time.

He may be getting a lot of sympathy, attention and treats from you. And he may have figured out how to use that to his advantage.

If you really think he is that painful, you should call your vet to see what they think.

Thanks Bonnie, your probably right. I can't remember a neuter being that big of a deal. Granted its been awhile since I've neutered anything but I thought the recovery would be faster than this. He just wants to lick the area and is getting frustrated that he can't reach it. I've checked and it seems to be healing just fine.

I've been hand feeding him chicken breasts with rice and cottage cheese and I've got a fresh batch of jerky in the dehydrater now so I guess I'm spoiling him a bit. Its just hard when he doesn't understand whats happened to him.

I bet the chicken and jerky are making him feel better!I have one of those Comfy Cones that I use when one of mind needs to use a cone. (And I've used it often over the past 9 years with Caleb.) Caleb manages to destroy the plastic ones blasting through their dog door and however else he manages to break them up. At least the Comfy Cone lasts.
The nice thing about the soft cone, we can turn it back enough that he can eat without having to take it off and then fight to get it back on after a meal.

Oh how I wish I could have used that donut! Unfortunately, he's so long he's able to reach the incision so I had no choice but to go with the cone again.

He is enjoying his special meals right now and the jerky turned out pretty good. Its just going to be a rough ten days ahead. He is feeling better which kind of makes it worse as I have to keep him quiet as much as I can. I'm already missing my play mate fetch
