Default worried mum

My little boy claude (10mths) is having his man parts removed today. So I am a worrying mum as I dont know how he will be when I pick him up later. How did your dogs get on and any advice?

Fred stayed at the vet over night, and was the exact same rambunctious puppy when I got him back. So it was tough to keep him from pulling out his stitches.

Probably a little stoned if you pick him up tonight (keep him away from stairs), back to normal by morning.

Soundtrack's description fit my Norman to a tee and he was almost 15 months when he lost his parts. Norman believes that the CONE OF SHAME is the worst part of recovery from surgery.

I dropped Barney off at 9am and they called me at 2pm to come and get him.....one of the disadvantages of never crating....he was outraged that he was caged in....they never suggested a cone and said that to give him a pain pill only if he acted like he needed one, which they didn't think he would. He didn't...pretty much acted normal and never bothered his stitches...100% back to normal next morning....hardest part was trying to keep him quiet...finally just gave up...I did make a special dinner for him that first night of chicken and rice thinking his stomach might be upset...a alittle spoiling never hurts.
Properly trained, a man can be a dog's best friend.

Gandy never needed the cone. He didn't seem to mind. I gave him the pain pills out of guilt more than anything.

We picked up Butters the same day. We had already been through this with our Beagle, so we were totally expecting a groggy little doggy (almost looking forward to it, actually). Our little guy acted like he never even had a surgery. I was starting to wonder if they even DID the surgery. He was never groggy, or acted like he had any pain. He was the same little rambunctious pup we dropped off that morning!

I had Jake and the husband done the same week. Neither needed the Cone of Shame, although both were a bit "stoned" afterwards, but both recovered nicely and both are well behaved "boys". Needless to say, the step son (10 yo at the time) was a bit worried he was next!

Our Basset boy Harry came back in the evening a little out of it and slept for the first couple of hours. To be honest he was fine but I was a little shocked at how the stitches looked and soreness of it all. In my female ignorance I thought it was just a little snip!! He whined a little during the night although he was on Metacam which is unusual for him but behaved like normal after this. We had him done as early as we could as he started humping everything (especially my daughters bright pink Space Hopper which was rather comical!!). I have to say it stopped him humping completely which was excellent, especially with young children around. So although its worrying I'm sure like others have said your boy will be absolutely fine & we found it great that he no longer leapt on things/people/space hoppers anymore! :-))
