Toby's getting snipped today!

Hi all,

I took Toby in this morning for an exam before the neuter and since I hadn't fed him yet and they had time, he's getting neutered today. I wasn't quite mentally prepared, but I felt really good about this vet who was very highly recommended (Thanks again Bev!). The first thing he did when he came in was to give Toby a big hug and cuddle to set him at ease. How awesome is that?!

He's going to do CBC and pre-op chem panel. He only uses Isoflorane anesthesia and had optional laser (instead of traditional scalpel). We're also going to microchip while he's under.

They're going to give me a call when he's out of surgery and they expect that I'll be able to pick him up before they close.

Since, I wasn't expecting to get it done today, I'm a little nervous. *bites nails*

I'll be thinking of Toby today! I'm sure he will be just fine and I'm hoping for a quick, though not TOO quick, recovery!

Thanks for all the good vibes!

They called almost 2 hours ago and said he's in recovery. The surgery went well and all his bloodwork was great. Yay!!! What a relief! I need to call them in another 2 hours when they'll have a better idea of what time he can come home.

Elaina, yes I went shopping a few days ago and the vet agreed that the onsies are a good idea.as

Judy, you're right and my mom said the same thing! She didn't think I would have been able to sleep last night if I had known. Way to find the bright side.

What are onesies? Is this recommended for recently neutered males? Any specific brand/type I should be looking for!?!

I love being a part of this forum - I am learning so much about puppy rearing!!!! Thanks, all!

Onsies are the bodysuit looking things babies wear. It works to keep dogs from licking the incision so we don't have to use the e-collars.
