Dog was neutered today...

They said to keep the e-collar on for 7-10 days. Have your dogs allowed this contraption to remain in place for 7-10 days or is fewer days sufficient?

  • If you are WATCHING the dog then it doesn't need to be on but if he is a licker or if he isn't in your sight it should be on. It will save you money and will save him pain if you just stick with it for at least a week. I'm a vet tech and we say 7 days min. GL

  • When my dog was neutered he didn't wear any special collar at all. We were just told to keep him quiet for about a week.

  • Neither of mine had to wear the collar (one spay, one neuter). I just had to keep them calm for a few days and make sure they didn't lick the incision too much.
