Hope it goes well!!! Bear got neutered last week and it seems like he is back to himself already. I hope Oscar also has a good experience Don't get too upset if he's pretty dopey when you see him and bring him home (I felt so bad when he came home and was still out of it). keep us posted!

that seems about right. They could have knocked down the price of the cherry eye a bit since it's all under the same anesthetic and recovery time, but otherwise the price seems in line. If you think about how much it costs the vet the run the OR; all the equipment, drugs, anesthetic gases, sterilization equipment, surgical tools, etc. It's very expensive. They often take a loss on the low cost spay and neuters for the SPCAs as a public service venture. My neighbour is my vet and she isn't rich by any means; i think she just breaks even and she works very very hard.

Thanks- I called several times last night and they told me they love him (and his eyebrows) and that he was doing fine. Of course, I wasn't fine and I cried on the phone with them. I called again this morning (no crying this time) and they told me I can pick him up at 10- I will be there at 9:45, of course I can't wait to see him! They did tell me over the phone that he has internal stitches that will dissolve so no cone (YAY!) unless he really tries to go for them. He will be on pain meds, and has to go out for walks on a leash (do his business and come right back in). They said no real excitement for him either- yeah, that's going to work. I will post again when I get back with him.

He's home! And he pooped on the floor as soon as he walked in the door! He is totally fine. One of the techs told me she was carrying him around most of the morning. His incision is a little red so he has a collar on. He also is trying to scratch his eye. I am keeping him occupied with a cow's ear and when he is done with that, I have a bully stick and a deer antler lined up.
They gave him Rimadyl for the pain. He was so excited to see us, he started crying and didn't stop until we got home with him. He ran outside before I had a chance to put his leash on, but it's on now and he is safe and sound. His eye looks great- they did the pocket method. Only a little redness. He goes back on Monday for F/U with the eye. Thank you everyone for making me feel better about everything... I appreciate the support more than words can say.

I'm glad your little boy is home and okay. I would have to look to see the amount we paid for McGee's neuter but I know it wasn't near that much. Maybe the south is cheaper!
