    Default Right decision?

    Did I make the right decision on having Bentley neutered while having his cherry eye removed? I just feel so awful right now...

    Yes, absolutely! The recovery from the neuter is easier than from the cherry eye and he will be a happier and healthier dog in the long run. No prostate cancer and no hormones driving him crazy every time he smalls a female in heat somewhere in the air!

    Poor thing has been through so much and to have that pain coming from both ends is just upsetting to me...thank you @agentbunny, I'm feeling a little better about it now!

    It was the right decision. Putting a bully under anesthesia only once is the best thing for them. You absolutely did the right thing for your baby.

    Yes, you absolutely did the right thing, I agree with everyone's comments. I had Blossom spayed and her cherry eye done at the same time, spay surgery is a more involved surgery with an incision, ovaries and uterus removed and more stitches than a neuter surgery. Blossom had a very quick recovery, she was running around the next day, and even jumped off our couch. She acted like she never had surgery. I had Dozer neutered a week later after she healed. He also had a great recovery. Bentley won't have any post surgical pain, he will have pain medication for 4 days post surgery, and then he will be all healed by a week. They bounce back quite quickly, and you'll be glad that you did both at the same time. It means he only has to go under anesthetic once instead of twice, he heals all at once, and it is actually cheaper to do more than one surgery at the same time. I paid more for Blossoms second cherry eye surgery than I did for her spay and her first cherry eye surgery together, because she had to be put under anesthetic again, IV fluids, medications, operating time etc.
    Having your guy neutered is best if you aren't planning to use him for breeding, as it will reduce his risk of certain cancers, it will reduce his urge to hump, or mark his scent, and will eliminate his urge to run off or wander looking for females in heat, which can put him at risk of getting lost, or getting hit by a car. He has been through the surgery now, and he will be back to himself before you know it don't feel bad or guilty, you made the right decision.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Bentley just got out of surgery and is doing amazing! They were able to tack both eyes even though the left one hasn't been coming out! As far as the neutering goes, he did awesome! I'm so glad to have you guys to turn to for all of the help and information y'all have offered!
