• Cash, our male lab mix, was neutered today. He keeps taking the cone off. He has a lot of loose skin on his neck. We tighten it as far as we can and he still pull over his head. I am concerned what we do when we are sleeping and can't watch him? Banfield just closed an hour ago so we can't call them.

    Hi Stephanie,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local Banfield hospital today if this is still an issue. The cone is important to keep him from licking at the surgical site. There may be other types or sizes of cones that will fit him better. Your vet knows Cash so they will be able to help you find a cone that will work for him.
