Surgi Snuggly found out that KORU BEAR was getting neutered and they sent their Wonder Suit to provide comfort to his recovery. Golden Woofs only share information we feel is relevant to our readers.
5 Tips for Helping Your Dog Heal After Neuter Surgery
It is important to always abide by your veterinarian’s instructions when it comes to post-surgical care. For the safety of your dog, follow your veterinarian required ‘healing period’ of 14 days to avoid any complication that could cause your dog to have a longer restriction time.
Keep your dog restricted. Too much motion and activities might cause the incision site to open up. I was told by KORU BEAR’s vet that excessive movement could result in bleeding and can be very painful.
Keep your dog clean. However, no bath for 10-14 days Why no bath after neuter surgery? It is crucial to keep your dog’s surgical incision dry to prevent any bacteria or infection into the surgical incision. If your dog needs to be cleaned, use a warm washcloth, pet wipes, or dry shampoo.
If your dog enjoys tummy rubs, it is the best way to check your dog’s surgical incision. Watch out for redness, swelling, and discharge. If a dramatic change occurred on the surgical incision, visit your vet.
For your dog to avoid licking and scratching the surgical incision, your vet will recommend an Elizabethan collar (e-collar or cone of shame). For many dogs, it takes time/days to get accustomed using an e-collar, and it can be very uncomfortable. Surgi Snuggly Wonder Suit is a fantastic alternative.

Sophie and Elwood says
Great to know that there is a good alternative to those darn “lampshades”! Last time Elwood had to wear one he had to stay in a kennel for half a day while we were away. When we picked him up he had managed to nearly rip the collar off and it was held together with purple duck tape!! Thanks for the new idea.
