    My first born is going in tomorrow. :scared: I know he should have been done beforehand but on vets advice with the way Alf was when he came to live with us it got delayed. However the day has come. He's asleep at my feet (for a change) :rolleyes: and I'm a bag of nerves. :rolleyes:
    No treats on our walk in the morning. :(
    But fresh salmon and rice for his tea. :thumbup:

    awww bless him.
    Bertie was neutered yesterday and is back to his normal, cheeky, funny self today...eating and drinking and the other as if nothing has happened. he was a bit dopey last night and didnt want any tea but that all changed this morning when he suddenly realised how hungry he was.
    dont worry...the dogs recover really quickly (way faster than us humans) and life will return to normal in the next couple of days. just make sure he doesnt nibble at the wound. ask for and elizabethan collar if he does.

    He'll be ok. Thinking of you both! x

    Mine made a very speedy recovery. He was super sleepy when he got home but within a few days he was back to his normal (naughty!!) self. They bounce back surprisingly quickly.

    Good luck!!! He'll be ok, but it doesn't stop you from worrying.
    One of my girls had an emergency hysterectomy on Sunday, and she's well on the road to recovery now! They don't moan like us humans!!!

    Good luck today.
    I'm sure you will have more trouble keeping him still for a day or two than anything else
