    So it’s time for Tyson to get neutered. It’s going to be a long two weeks after the surgery. Any suggestions from you boys and girls as to things to make his and our lives any easier for those two weeks with the e collar on? FYI he is the first of my Dobermans to be neutered

    My boy didn't even wear a cone after he got neutered. He was 16 months old at the time, so he was quite capable of bothering the stitches. Maybe Tyson will be good like that too. Definitely use the pain meds that your vet should send him home with, and do plenty of leash walking.

    Why do you feel the need to neuter him?

    just some food for thought.

    I have to neuter Jasper due to breeder contract (not that my breeder has contacted me once after I paid, yah ik).

    If I do it, im looking into vasectomies. Supposedly the recovery is better and it allows them to keep the hormones. If you are worried about any of that stuff, check it out. My trouble is finding a vet near me that does it.

    My past dog had a tough recovery. He was neutered at 2yrs old. He was swollen for over a week and black and blue everywhere between his legs. I have no advice besides keeping them on leash outside to prevent excessive exercise. And looking up when its good to apply heat or ice to help them heal (I can’t remember off the top of my head)

    A vasectomy is a much better choice if you have to neuter.

    strange about the breeder part. Neuter or spay with the breeder I purchased from voids all health contracts.

    We had Preacher done shortly after his second birthday. I made sure the procedure was done by laser instead of scalpel. We had no problems with him bothering it while he healed.

    Normal neuter at 18months.
    Kept close eye on him and didn’t seem to be in pain so stopped pain meds after 3days.

    Used a leash and tried to prevent running and jumping. Was successful for first five days but after that, it wasn’t happening.

    No issues with wound or recovery.

    Same here except I don't remember him getting any pain meds. :scratch: 18 months, no cone of shame, and except for trying to keep him calm, it was like nothing happened. :whoop: He barely batted an eye. Happy to see me on pickup, as usual. :D Didn't hold a grudge. :whistle:

    Very good reason. If he has to have limited exercise maybe this could be a two week marathon of mental/brain game challenges! Best to you & fast recovery for Tyson!

    I agree that the hard part is keeping him quiet. We didn't need a cone or pain meds either so the biggest issue was to make sure he didn't get too excited.

    Absolutely necessary when that presents itself.

    I only have jokes about Jolly Balls, being that mine still has his lol, so I hope Tyson has an easy recovery. Agree that mental games and maybe a chew toy, Kong, or bully sticks to help him pass the time. Will probably save your sanity too ;)
