    Default I just need someone to tell me that it will be fine!

    I am starting to have anxiety about Gator's neutering on Friday. I don't remember feeling like this when Lucy was spayed! My baby is going under! OMG!

    This morning my husband and I were talking about it and I actually started getting short of breath! I don't know what is up with me about this! I have never, nor do I ever, want a pet that is not spayed or neutered. Well...except the hamsters but that wouldn't be very practical would it? Is that even possible??

    What has this guy done to me? First I actually am putting clothes on a dog (which I swore would never happen but now think is the cutest thing ever), I ignore his gassines, obsess over his diet, wipe his booty without blinking (which, lets face it, when you are a kid you don't dream about following a dog around with a baby wipe) , I think it must be

    It will be fine! Just make sure they are using isofluriane to put him under and nothing else, okay? I tell everyone to check this as it is important.

    dont worry! he will be ok. I was the same way with gregory, i actually cried and called the vet every 3 hrs or so to make sure all was well.
    is he coming home the same day or are they keeping him overnight?

    Thank you so much for this! I will actually call them tomorrow and inquire about what the options are. What are the reasons for that particular drug?

    I was just cleaning his face and looking at his sweet face and cried a little thinking about it. I think I am worried about two things, the anesthesia and will the surgery change his personality?? I mean he is 6 months old so still young but I love him the way he is!! Of course, I will still love him as he changes with growing older but what if he gets SAD (ok, dumb, I know).

    He will go in very early in the morning for the blood work to make sure all is well before the surgery and then I will pick him up around 4pm after the surgery. The office is open on Saturdays and I have already posted the number for the ER Vet on the fridge just in case something happens in the middle of the night on Friday. I am debating whether or not I want to make a bed on the sofa to be near him or just drag his crate upstairs to my room. I know he will want to sleep in his crate because that is his special place he goes when he feels like it. I think maybe I should leave it because it has been in the same location since he came home with us. THIS is how much thought I have put into this! lol

    Thank you guys for your words of encouragement! They help so much!

    I was a mess when Winston was neutered. He did much better with the situation than I did. Your doing the right thing for him and everything will be just fine. Just be ready to give him extra when he comes home.

    It is the safest way to put a bully under. ACE is bad and even propofol can be risky. Basically you want to ask what anesthesia they use. Vets with bully exp. Know this. . Big hugs!!!
