I have two problems. The first one is, Obi was neutered yesterday and i just got him back today. He is licking his stitched and i had asked earlier if i would need a cone thing for him and they looked at me like im crazy. Does he need it if he wont stop licking his stitches. I will have to get one from a different vet because mine is only in town mondays and wednsday
My second problem, is obi has already gotten home and peed and pooped on my bed. He never does that and now he is starting. Did this happen to anyone else? And what can i do about it?? Thank you everyone.

Brinkley licked "around" his stitches...but never really bit at them or bothered them. He didn't have to wear the cone. I know some did. Kallie/Catcher's mom used a bite-not collar with hers. She talks highly of it.

Try buying a baby "onsie" to cover the stitches when he's in the house (cut a hole for the tail).

You can purchase an e-collar at a petsmart or petco.

I would just go back to the basics on house training with him. It is not unusual for them to regress after a stressful situation.
