the one thing i remember is after my dog had his procedure, he couldn't run or jump for about 4-6 weeks in order to prevent the stitches from tearing. keep his activity low and stay with him the rest of the day when you pick him up from the vet. also, don't feed him too much when you get home. the anasthesia can make their bellies upset so if he seems to be hungry, give him a little at a time throughout the day. something tells me he will be sleeping most of the time. the best thing, call the vet and get specific information, that will help put your mind at ease, ask for information regarding post op recovery as well. i stayed with my dog the day after surgery as well just to be on the safe side, if you can do it, that would be great.
