Jax Gets Neutered Tomorrow!

I am taking Jax in the morning to get it done. I am a little nervous esp. since he had such a severe allergic reaction to his vaccines, wondering how he will react to anesthesia............... I am also worring about how sick he gets when travels-he will start puking after about 3 minutes & will do it for the whole 45 minute drive. It will just make him that much weaker.

But i know God's in control! Please keep him/us in your thoughts & prayers!!

Tripp, Jax, & Dreamer

Good luck to Jax! Did he have any pre-op blood work? That usually helps to predict some anesthesia problems. Also, you might check to see what anesthesia the vet is using. I think its Isoflurane that is recommended as best for Havanese. I think I remember someone saying that an IV drip is also recommended, but I'm not sure. Maybe someone else knows about that.

I'm glad you are getting the pre-op bloodwork done. That will help ease your mind. You can also ask that they keep an IV in him during the surgery so they can inject anything immediately, if needed.

Gee, i didnt even know to ask about that Kimberly. If they have an IV are they administering fluids also or is it just for emergency issues only?

Relax Shannon, I know that is easier said than done, but we are all sending speical vibes for Jax and just know he will be fine. Does the vet know how bad he is in a car? Can he give him something that might make it easier on him. But wait, Jax can't have anything to eat or drink after midnight, right? I wonder if that will make a difference for him.

I'm not sure about that, Shannon. I know that some vets don't use an IV, and that a couple of breeders have recommended that you ask your vet to do it anyway as a precautionary measure.

By the way, I'd love to tell you not to worry, but I was a huge worrier when I took my first boy in for his neuter. It will all be over soon and Jax will be home in a groggy, but perfect condition.
