Radar Get's Neutered This Tuesday

Well Radar has His Appointment this Tuesday to Get the ole' Snip-Snip. I wonder does anyone have any advice on what to expect? What will Radar be limited to? Does it take a long time for healing? I'm a little worried that he might over-exert himself. Radar has a lot of energy and he really doesn't know his own limits I think and I would hate for him to hurt himself. Radar will also have his top Canines Removed. He has four teeth up there. The baby teeth are poking our from behind the adult teeth which appear to be fully out. I thought this would have affected Radar because My Wife told me that he was really clingy one day and seemed afraid to be down on the floor. He even refused to eat Dinner but quickly gobbled it down when I got home for some reason he ate as soon as I put the bowl in front of me....Hmmmm....Odd I think.

Thanks

Derek

Biscuit didn't have the additional tooth extractions, which will probably add another day to the recovery, but he was wanting to nap mostly the first day or two, somewhat out of it, and but then after that was pretty much himself. Of course, he wore an E-collar the entire time (for 10 days) so he wouldn't chew up the incision. He didn't mind the E-collar at all, and became very adept at scooping up his toys in it, sleeping in it, etc. It was pretty uncomplicated. But I was nervous about it, too.
Good luck



HAV A GREAT DAY ! ~~AMY & BISCUIT~~

Yeah thanks. I'm mostly worried about the recovery time and when I can take hime out for walks and stuff. My Wife and I are going to bathe Radar before we take him in because I would imagine that he won't be able to be exposed to water for some time after the procedure.

Thanks

Derek

Brady had 3 teeth removed and his neuter at the same time. I thought DH and I were going to cry taking him there. I think we handled it worse than Brady. He did great. It was hard to slow him down though. He was sleepy for a day or so, but then he was back to normal. This picture was from the day after surgery. As you can see, nothing changed much following the "proceedure". Most of you have seen this picture before, but I can't help but show it again.

Radar will do great. It is a lot easier than what my girls went thru. The day of the surgery, he will be real lethargic, and just want to lay in his crate, but the next day - he was perfectly fine. He did have to wear the collar cause he was licking, but he played, went for walks & was totally back to normal.

That picture of Brady still makes me smile, it is one that just can't be seen "too much"! Love it.

Derek, I'm sure Radar will do fine, I think it is much easier for males than it is females, even in the human world too! I bet he will be sleepy and a little whiney or clingy for a day or two, and then back to normal. The vet will probably give him pain meds that will make him drowsy. I would just do lots of snuggling and keep him close so he won't injure anything.

Gucci will sometimes wait for me to eat, too. Which might be why she doesn't eat that much because I seldom eat breakfast. My guess is, they eat with their "pack" in the wild, so the instinct is to do it at home, too.

Karen, I've never seen that picture, and it's truly adorable. Have to show my DH, as we have a Siamese mix cat , too. Although our Jesse and Biscuit merely tolerate one another. Will nap next to each other, but rarely touch. That is too cute!
