Good News...

So, 1 of our cats was due for her shots today and while we were there I decided to go ahead and bite the bullet and schedule Tillie's spay.
The sectretary wanted to schedule her for TUESDAY. as in THIS coming Tuesday. I was like, woah, woah, woah... I was thinking more like begining of the year. LOL
So she is scheduled for January 4th... she will be almost 7 months.
AND the good, great news is that she doesn't have to stay over night!!!!
Apparently they use different anesthesia on the cats and they DO have to stay over night, but for the dogs, they come around quicker and are "with it" enough to go home same day! yippppeee! I was really dreading having to leave her.
I am wondering if anyone else was able to do an outpatient spay like this?
Is it okay? anything I should be worried about??
count down is on...

When our regular vet does spays and neuters, they require the 'patients' to stay overnight; however, there is no one on duty during the night to monitor. I was not happy with that setup so our vet referred us to another clinic in town that uses a newer anesthetic and they send their patients home the same evening or late afternoon. Augie had his procedure at 10:30 a.m. and by 4:45 p.m., when I went in to pick him up, he was running around their office like nothing had happened. The anesthetic they used on him was Sevoflurane. I just could not leave him in a place overnight with no supervision. If something happened to him during the night, I felt it was better for me to race him to an emergency vet than for him to lay there until morning.

My friend encountered the same thing...they wanted to keep her lab overnight, but there's no one at the facility if anything should happen, so they took her home again the same day and she was fine.
On a side note, another friend had his cat spayed earlier this week. He dropped her off at 8 and picked her up again at 4 so she was basically in and out too.

My vet kept Santos overnight, but he wasn't alone. Why would a vet want to keep them overnight if there was nobody there to check on them? That really doesn't make sense, does it?

A lot of people here have brought their dogs in to be done in the morning and get them later that night. My vet keeps them overnight. I've been going to the same place for 25 years and had all my animals done there. I didn't realize they had nobody there overnight. When I told them my concern before Milo went in, they told me none of the regular vet offices had overnight coverage. I asked "what if something happens?" They told me it never does.

Yeah the anaesthisia is better than the old ones. I think it's great. About time.

It didn't make sense to me either. And even though I realized they must not have problems doing it that way (or they would change their procedure), I still wasn't taking chances with MY baby! I was nervous enough leaving him there for the surgery with people there, let alone leaving him overnight by himself.

Actually, it would have been less expensive for us to go to the vet that kept the patients overnight than the one who released Augie the same day. We were told this newer anesthetic is more expensive. And at that point I was not concerned about the cost - I just wanted him safe and there for the least amount of time possible.
