Boys getting Neutered next week

We have a couple of boys going in next week for the old snip snip as Derek calls it.

Duncan goes on Monday
Sully goes on Tuesday
Beamer goes on Wednesday
Monte goes on Thursday

Even though I have been through this before surgery is never fun and my nerves are already getting the best of me. Probably more today because I have to bring Monte in for his blood work later.

I know Dot had asked on Radar's page what expect, well my first experiance was a breeze even though Riley wanted nothing to do with me when we brought him home. Riley is a very active boy that does not like to stop so my hardest thing was keeping him quite. The pain meds did not seem to make him drowsy at all, I was hoping they would but nope Riley was his crazy self the next morning. I was lucky that Riley never bothered with his stitches so I was able to keep the collar off him.
Monte is a lot different, he loves to sleep so I am hoping he will be easier to keep calm, the hard part will be getting Riley to leave him alone.

Best of luck to Dot & Duncan on Monday, we will be thinking of you.

Leeann, Riley, Monte & Rumor

Well good luck to all of you with your boys............ Houston was good and didn't bite his stitches so I didn't have to use a collar. Also, the vet tec gave me great advice of using a baby onsie and cutting out a hole for his tail when we had to leave him. Worked well!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good luck.

Good luck to all. This is a great idea Leeann to have the thread up ahead of time. I have mentioned this on other threads but if you can get a Bite Not Collar before they have the surgery you will both get through the 10 days much easier.

I have no vested interest in this company--- but It made the boys life so much easier

good luck we will be checking in.

Good luck, gentlemen/pups...I'm sure they will do fine I'm glad to hear you are going for the bloodwork, that would ease my mind tremendously.

We will be thinking about you!

Kara and Gucci.

Too bad you all don't live nearer to each other and use the same vet... If you did, perhaps you could get a group discount

Seriously, my best wishes, thoughts and prayers to all the guys and their mommies and daddies

Best of Luck to the Snip-Snip Boys When they get the Ole' Procedure. Radar had No Meds of any Kind when we got him home. He was very active and wanted to resume normal activites just like before we brought him in. I wish nothing but the best and hope that everyone comes through with flying colours. We're keeping a Neutering Vigil...
