    Default Zeus is ready to give up his jewels!!

    Zeus is scheduled for his surgery to give up his jewels on Thursday. I am really apprehensive about the anesthesia, but my vet takes care of many bullies so I feel confident in his abilities. I have asked all the right questions I learned from EBN and he gave me all of the right answers. He told me I could bring him home late that evening or he can stay overnight at no extra charge. However, I really think he will do better at home with us and in my bed. I will have to wait until that time to make my final decision. He is such a momma's boy I think he needs to be home. My hubby wanted me to wait until 18 months to two years, but he is showing signs of maturity I don't like. I think 10 months will work just fine!

    At times I wish I would have neutered 3 months earlier than I did. Some of the problems, shy of the terrible two's, I'm having with Wilson and Jack right now is due to them having matured a bit before being neutered....so a trainer told me.

    to Zeus on Thursday. The next day you'd never know Wilson had his jewels snatched from him.

    He will definetly be fine, it's not as invasive as a spay surgery, so postoperative healing is much faster. I had both my babies done 2 months ago when they were 9 months old , Blossom was spayed, and my male was neutered. Both did really well, but Dozer healed much faster than his sister, because she had an incision and stitches. He was fine the next day, and you wouldn't even know he had surgery, he came home that night, and had pain meds for 4 days, but only needed them for 3, he was a little sleepy first day, but other than that did really well. You just need to keep him quiet for 5 to 7 days, and restrict his jumping. Don't worry, he is going to be ok, let us know how it went, keep us posted.

    Thank you all for your well wishes! I am only concerned because I know English Bulldogs are so different than other breeds. I was not as nervous with my 3 lb. Yorkie as I am with Zeus and I don't know why. My Yorkie did great and I am sure Zeus will too. This same vet took great care of my other Bully and always knew exactly what to do so I am sure I am worried for no reason, but it is still scarey. I just hope I am doing this soon enough to get rid of some of the male habits I am seeing! @JeannieCO you never know what to expect with our boys! I think it is a fine line between too early and not soon enough. We just have to deal with what we get! I will keep you all posted on how he does. This is my only week home for the next three weeks so it was the best time for me. Hubby will be on his own after that!!

    My hubby wanted to wait as long as possible for health/growth reasons. He always believed that you don't want to neuter too early. Ideally 18 months would have been his choice too but we got Emma and that was that, the jewels had to go.

    Bacon was 8 months old when he gave up the goodies and you would have never known the day after. Hardest part for us was keeping him calm so he didn't pop his stitches. Good luck

    Zeus will be just fine! I know how easy it is to worry, though. I am not ashamed to admit I was teary when I dropped Tonka off for his surgery! When I got Tonka I hadn't heard anything about waiting until a certain age to neuter and heard some say earlier is better and some say waiting is better so I was torn. We had Tonka neutered at the "typical" time vets recommend for most puppies so I think he was 5 1/2-6 months. At that point he had already started the "male behaviors" but I always wonder if that was the wrong decision, though. Does anyone know if/why it's better to wait?

    Couldn't agree more on the 18 months comment, I didn't listen to advice, neutered my dog at 8 months, and I feel he never really was able to develop his courage or self esteem as a result, but, it's also best to do it early to avoid him picking up on habits such as marking or any aggressive or dominance traits, double edged sword, and there is no wrong decision with pros and cons in both arguments, I was worried sick when it was biggies time and was shocked when the vet called an hour later telling me to pick him up, first day he was bummed out, but he was back to normal the day after, we took it easy with no showers for about 10 days till he went back for a check up and got the mother of baths right after
