surgery tomorrow...I am scared:(

Hi Guys,

I swear to God, that Buddy can feel he is going to the surgery tomorrow (neutering). He gives me this sad look, poor little thing.
I am also very scared for him, I hope everything goes well and he will be the same like before. How long do you usually keep them quiet, I mean without running or jumping?

Not a clue - I've never had a dog neutered. I need a pain pill just thinking about it!!

I think I need a drink right now, pill won't help
You are not going to neutere your dog?
I don't want to do it at all, but looks like there is no other way around it. They won't take him to day care and boarding otherwise, and I will have to visit my family overseas...

Re: surgery tomorrow...I am scared:(

I was neutered about 5 years ago, I stayed quiet for about 3 days. Im not sure that helps much..

Linda just sent you a pm.

Your vet will probably give a post op set of instructions when you go in. Usually they'll have the dog on restricted exercises from a few days to a week or so depending on how conservative they are.

Sending you and Buddy a

Good Luck.

Buddy isn't worried about his testicles. He's worried because you are acting funky.

Butch LOL. Was not expecting that response but good question. I don't know the answer because we have not had Rocky neutered yet.

Rest for the pup, no running and jumping for about 7 days. Watch that you pup doesn't optn the incision. You can use cold packs applied 3 or 4 times a day to keep the swelling down.

Re: surgery tomorrow...I am scared:(

so Buddy is at home already. He is ok, a bit drowsy, tired and sleeping. First, I thought, that they didn't remove his testicles, because he is so swollen there, he has this big ball there, it should go away. Poor my munchkin. I love him to death.
