The big snip

Gryff goes for his snip on Thursday. I'd normally not be nervous about it, but my husband and I finally figured out that the reason we had so much trouble with him for that week or so was because he was having a bad reaction to all his vaccinations. I am worried about the anesthesia. I'm sure he'll be okay, but I am just a bit nervous.

I am sure he will do great =- hang in there Gryff - its not that bad. If you are concerned about the vacinations and now anesthesia, talk to the vet tomorrow and maybe they can reassure you on thisl Did you finally get Yoda done, Susan??

Ivy~ If you have Diane Klumb's book, the Havanese, anesthesia is discussed on p.119. If you don't have it but, want to know what it says, PM me and I'll type it out for you. Specific names of anesthesia best used w/havanese, as well as the safe method of putting them under, are given.

Sending good vibes for you on Thursday. I agree with bloodwork beforehand if you can. Keep us updated.

Good luck with Gryff's snip on Thursday! Kubrick hopes he will get better soon after as he is also going in for his snip pretty soon!

Good Luck to you and Gryff! I know just how you feel because Rufus is going in tomorrow for his snip too! I'm getting sorta nervous about it tonight. Did your vet explain to you what sort of anesthesia they're using? Mine uses Isoflurane (yeah, that's the good one!), but they talked about the pre-anesthesia and I can make a choice on that. I haven't decided yet. For the pre-anesthesia they use Ketamine or Valium...or I can choose Propofol which clears the system a bit faster. I wonder if that would be a good choice for Gryff? They told me the propophol would cost a bit more, but it wasn't so awfully much more. My vet also does pre-op bloodwork and generally does what they call a level one, but I could opt for the level two bloodwork that's a bit more extensive.

Did they tell you how long before they can have a bath? My vet will use surgical glue. OK sorry for the thread swipe! I am commisserating with you!! Good luck!
