Dexter will be getting neutered next month and was wondering which is the better drug on choice during surgery?

Google.com will probably give you better information, but both have been recommended as the better anesthesia options. I believe that isoflurane keeps them in a lighter sleep and is much easier to awake the dog, but both are good.

Thanks Kimberly! I wanted to get some HAV experience advice, so I posted here. I did do the google, so much information to digest!

Belle had her dental done with iso and I was shocked at how awake she was 3 hours later. I am not sure if that is good to keep them resting but she was fully awake and ready to attack the dog's next door as soon as she got home. I had to separate her from my dogs and keep her calm.

Linda, while I was waiting for an appointment later, I went to Google and entered both names and saw what you mean. There is a lot of information, including comparisons, that are not as easy to digest. A Hav breeder, who also works in the medical field, is the one who told me that Isoflurane is the one I should request of my vet, but that is what she (my vet) opts for anyway, so I didn't even need to ask for it.
