I was going to do Oliver and Sebastian separate, but after thinking about it I decided I wanted them both in cones and dopey at the same time. I'm scheduling theirs right after they turn 1 in December, so more likely after we get taxes back since there is no rush (healthwise) to get it done any sooner. I think you could handle both of them at the same time. If not, I'll come sit with you!!! (wishful thinking)
Kim, Lord Sebastian, Sir Oliver, Remy Le Beau, and Gracie Lou <3
Thank-you mucho, Becky!
breeding them." It wasn't said in a good way either. I was stunned. This is a top rated place. Alameda East and they're known for being on the Animal Planet quite a few times. Needless to say, I found a bully vet immediately and I couldn't be happier with him (he's on the vet list here).
Henny I say get them both done at the same time. We'll be having Wilson and Jack done at the same time too but only after they turn a year old - our vet doesn't recommend it before then. You'll do just fine. I'm a double (heck triple) parent and in a two parent home most the time - you can do it!!!
I'd get them both done the same day too .. they will both come home groggy and sleep a lot. Whereas if only one of them is done, the other will be bouncing all over them like some kinda Tigger!!! PLUS that also means you will only have to sit there and be worried sick the one time and not two!!!
Okee dokey, they are both scheduled for their neuter this coming Monday, 10/10! But don't tell them that, I don't want the two of them to worry! :shhhh:
I'm relieved to at least have them scheduled now b/c i've been thinking about this non-stop for the past 3 days, and now i'm just anxiously hopeful that EVERYTHING will go smoothly and they will both recover complication-free. Luckily Monday is a holiday for me (Columbus Day...yes, some of us still get that day off), and I'm taking Tuesday off to stay home w/them. Then, they'll be boarded at the vets the rest of the week so they aren't home alone.
and @JAKEISGREAT, i did ask if they'd give me a discount for the two of 'em too. I got a "no" on that but it never hurts to ask, right!?
I get that not everyone is going to be a huge fan of the English Bulldog. I get it - I don't UNDERSTAND IT - but I get it. Hey: I wouldn't have a Minpin or a Cheewowow for all the friggin' tea in China. But scolding your customer isn't good business in ANY business.
@Vicaroo1000, I was really surprised when he said that. My other boys had been going there for 7 years but to a different vet and they were always wonderful. When I made the appt. for Wilson I asked for a vet that was more experienced with this breed, he was one of their top vets too - go figure. I have spent $1000s there with my old dog but and would only go back if it was a dire emergency, their 24/7 and have a rehab section. As you can see, they left a sour taste is my mouth.
@cali baker good luck with everything on Monday. keep us posted on their progress
