Neuter Day Mad Man

I took Timmy in this morning to be neutered. I dropped him off at 8:00 and they said I would be able to pick him up by 2:00. So I dropped him off, ran some errands, dropped my daughter off at school for a delayed start and I got a call at 11:30 that all went well and I could stop by to pick him up anytime. I was so surprised but the tech said boys are home same day, the poor girls have to stay overnight. I'd be worried if he was there overnight by himself so I'm happy about that. I thought he'd be tired and out of it, but my vet said she uses propofol which allows them to wake up ready and raring to go. My friend lent me her blow up ring instead of the dreaded "cone of shame" which she said was a savior. So far I've been home for a bit and Timmy is MAD, MAD, MAD!!!! He finally did just fall asleep though.

When I first got to the vet he was wearing the cone and he's so much better with the ring, I highly recommend it. The vet said he has a pain injection that should last 24 hours, but I'm sure he's still uncomfortable, plus he's frustrated he can't reach the spot he wants to. He's going from bed to bed thinking one will help him, it's very sad. He's barking, growling and making the Scooby Doo sounds, very unlike him. One of my daughters is very sensitive things especially seams in clothing, tags, her socks can't even had the seam in the front it has to be around her toes, so I guess Timmy takes after her.

Thanks Tammy, I'm sure he'll be fine soon. DH has been working from home the past few days but has conveniently disappeared for most of today and still isn't home. Maybe it's just too painful for him to be around the little guy

I'm sure Timmy will feel better soon. It's difficult to watch them when they're uncomfortable.

So glad to hear Timmy is home and doing fine! I have several friends who are vets (that I run things by when I'm too embarrassed to call my vet!) and they told me that a lot of the wierdness you see after any type of anesthesia isn't pain, but that the animal is disoriented and finds that distressing. They told me that in the "old day" half the reason they kept animlas over night was, not because it did anything for the animal, but because then the owners didn't see them acting like this.. I felt bad that Kodi was feeling disoriented, but I did feel better knowing it wasn't a pain reaction.

So glad all went well. Timmy looks a lot like Rudi.
I am trying to decide when to get Rudi neutered. I've seen everything from 6 months to a year. How old is Timmy?

Glad all went well with Timmy. Mad is normal. I brought Wendy home from being bred yesterday ( left her Friday). Wendy was mad at me, thought she still wanted affection. Wendy wouldn't eat last night, but when we went to bed, she pushed her body so hard to mine it woke me up a couple times. Today, all is back to normal and I'll bet her cuddling tonight will be light like normal and I'll not notice.

Glad to hear Timmy is home safe and sound. And thanks for the tip about the inflatable ring. I have two boys that will be getting snipped this summer, so I will get two of those in advance.
