So glad that your baby is home and not crying anymore. I'll bet that was tugging at your heart all the way home.

Glad to hear Oscar is home-happy dance-if he keeps trying to rub his eye a soft cone (of shame) would help. Happy Turkey Day to all.

I'm so glad he is home and ok! I just saw this thread so I thought I would weigh in. I honestly can't remember how much we paid for Ozzie's neuter but it was about 3 times as much as anyone else. The difference was he was given intravanous (sp?) fluids, he had 2 baby teeth pulled, and he was microchipped. Also, they did keep him overnight and I cried like a baby when I left him! My doctor stayed late into the evening to keep him company even though he was on drugs and kind of out of it (Ozzie, not the Dr! LOL) I love my vet and totally trust him BTW, it only took about a day before Ozzie was back to his old self.

I just looked up Brody's neuter bill it was $360 plus taxes. The neuter itself was about $200 which included IV and any baby teeth needing pulling. An extra $90 for pre-surgery blood panel (which was optional) and then microchip costs.

That's quite an ordeal. It must have been torture to have to leave him overnight. We're so happy that he is safe and sound.

He got the cone off yesterday and his eye is still a littly yucky (medical term there) so he has to get eye drops 2x a say still. He graduated from puppy class last night and will go on to behavior training with Buzzy in December. The only bad thing is the trauma from the surgery and being away from us has caused him to regress in his potty training We have him tethered to us in a leash now, in the crate, or in the pen. This time around he doesn't care and will go to the bathroom anywhere- even if he was just outside. The vet said it's normal and he will come back around in a few weeks. Good thing we had the hardwood floors put in the family room 2 weeks ago!

My vet charged around 400-50 neuter a female dog. All he stitches were inside and she ddn'twear a cone aad they didn't shave her lg for he IV cause I asked them not to. They put it down in her groin area. A male would have been a $100 or so less. I paid right at $300 for neutering the new kitten, but that included a $100 worth of tests to make sure he didt have any bad diseases, then they did all his vacs. Actually the neutering was almost exactly like they do calves, exthain put in stitches inside so they didn't have to be taken out. Vets are having a hard time now. People are not having their dogs and cats vac or treated for broken bones and other expensive things. They are having them put down. My Ve used to have a packed waiting room, now I never wait and a couple of others have gone out of business.
