Monte's trying to avoid Neuter Again!

Monte is scheduled to be neutered tomorrow. Well he must be sneaking phone calls into Missy’s Cash to figure out another way to avoid this surgery again…

Last night while the boys were playing in the kitchen Monte all of a sudden started yelping. Boy what a scary sound that is when your boy is crying up a storm. I was standing right there when it happened so was able to get to him quick to calm him down so I could see what was wrong. I put him up on the table and felt him all over putting a little pressure to see if I could get a yelp to help me find where he hurt himself. Could not find anything so I put him back on the floor and watched, I noticed he was holding his back right foot up just a little so I picked him up again and really went over that leg again no yelping. Put him back down and he started walking on it fine then when he took off to run he let out just one yelp and just walked over to me. I was ready to go to the emergency but DH said to give him a little time and see what he does he probably just pulled a muscle or something. Well I got on the phone & called my breeder, I needed to talk to someone and get another opinion. She agreed because he was walking on it to give it a little time and see what he does, we stayed on the phone for an hour and by the time we got off Monte was already jumping on and off the couch.
Then this morning he was walking fine going up & down the stairs but when he tried to take off after a toy he let out a very small yelp and held the paw up again for less than a min. He’s walking & trotting fine, jumping on & off things, stands on his hind legs but just when he tries to run it seems to hurt a little. I really think he is trying to avoid the old snip snip..

I don't think whatever he did is enough to put off having him neutered. They will do a check-up when you bring him in and I am sure it is nothing.

Monte is clever! Cash and he must have been talking through the pet communicator LOL. Here's the good news--- you take him in for the snip-snip- tomorrow -- the vet looks over his foot real good-- and his sore foot keeps him less active while he is healing from the snip snip! These Hav's are too smart for their own good.

Thank you guys, I did check his foot last night and did not see anything but I will do it again just to be safe.
I have not cancelled his snip snip we are still on for tomorrow. My nerves are already getting the best of me and now I have to worry about his leg on top of this grrr. My breeder did asked if I could have the vet check all his patellas tomorrow also to be on the safe side. Missy I hope you are right and this helps keep him calmer… we all know how that goes with these little stinkers.

Just in case he has pulled something, can you restrict his activity until he gets to the vet's tomorrow? I'm glad your breeder suggested to have his patellas checked too. If it isn't his knees, then it will be good that the sedative will keep him inactive for a day, but you'll want to keep him as restricted in activity as possible for a week or so, to make sure that whatever hurts him has time to heal properly. Poor guy.

Kimberly I had to laugh at your post Monte did the couch jumping last night while I was still on the phone with my breeder, umm yup you can imagine what she said to me about that…LOL The stairs happened this morning by accident, I carried him all the way down stairs put him on the ground in the kitchen so he could stretch a little then carried him all the way out side for potty. After going pee I was standing in the yard waiting for him to poop and the little stinker decided he wanted to go in so up the stairs he went and of course I gasped and said his name which prompted him to turn around and come right back down.. In one way I am happy to know he can still do these things but you are 100% right with your great advise, I need to keep him restricted. He could not have timed this injury any better seeing how he has to be restricted anyways.

Stinker! One option is to put him on a leash when you take him outside to eliminate. I know it makes more work for you, but it will keep him close to your side.
