Okay, it's been recommended to me to get Lizzie some Onesies so she won't lick/bite her surgical wound. Where can I get these for a female??

I believe they are referring to human baby onesies, you know the tiny tee shirts that snap in the crotch. I'm not sure how the dog goes pee in it but everyone recommends them. Try Walmart or Target. I doubt you'd even need the Gerber onesies, a generic one would work fine.

I put it on upside down so it snaps at the top of her but instead of her belly so that you can get the tail through one of the snap holes. I snapped one snap on either side and left the middle one undone for the tail. You can get them for a couple bucks at Walmart or Kmart. Then just have it on her when you can’t watch her. Take it off when you take her outside (if she goes outside and not on her pad). If she goes on a pad just be sure to take it off once in a while so that she can go potty, but watch her when it’s off so you can stop her if she bites or licks the incision.

i got gerber onesies at like walmart or something.. they were so cute
theres a pic of lucy in one somwhere around here.

i did the same thing as jodi, i thought that the snaps might bother her belly/squash her tail so we did it "upside down"

for pottying, we just unsnapped it and rolled it up a bit.

When you go to Wal Mart, look in the baby section w/ the socks and Tshirts ...the onesies are just tshirts that snap at the crotch. They come in newborn on up so check the size charts. I would imagine newborn if your baby is quite tiny yet (under 5-6lbs)

I got mine at walmart too, in the baby section. I put them on the normal way and cut a hole where the tail would stick out. I'd unbutton and roll them up when she needed to go pee. Unfortunately once daddy didnt ....


YUCK!

That is also how i did mine. I also would take the flap and not go through her legs but up the side and snap it (does that make sense?). That way she could pee and poop without it being in the way.

What I did was get a large size PJ's for Chelsey . She did not bother her stitches at all.
if you get the onesies rember to remove daily and brush puppy.
I did not remove chelsey pj's for two days and she was matted.
