Thread: Hooch is having a surgery tomorrow - stressed!

  1. #1

    Question Hooch is having a surgery tomorrow - stressed!

    Our Hooch is getting desexed tomorrow.
    I am worried for him but know it is needed.
    Please if anyone has any input/suggestions for us - if we should ask the vet for certain things or do certain things, let me know!
    Please keep us in your thoughts.

    The only thing I would suggest is pain meds after. You are suppose to keep them quiet after they come out of surgery, Harley had other ideas when he had his done though! Lol it was impossible to keep him still! I got a bucket for his head too because at the time he had an obsession with licking his balls so it helped stop that too!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Had a few males desexed in my time, no problems, no pain meds needed. Just kept them out of dirt the first few days. I think this will affect you more than him. Small meal the first night home. Mine acted as though nothing had happened. I didn't make a fuss of them so they didn't react to any stress on my part.
    Reminds me I should really book Bandit in.

    Thank you so much! I did ask if I can pay extra and get him the IV fluids and vet said no need to at all.
    So I guess its just the normal run of the mill procedure. I asked to be there with him when he wakes up so the receptionist said I can go have coffee in the shopping centre and they will call me when its all done.
    He goes crazzzzy in the car though, so I hope he will be groggy enough to lay quiet on the way home (30 mins drive).

    All my males have always seemed like nothing was done.just a bit groggy. Even Tessa and Annabelle seemed really happy after. So far I have not used pain meds either.......

    Lol Harley was groggy enough to stay quiet on our trip home which took about 40 minutes. It is a fairly easy surgery, girls are a little different because its much more invasive. Bella was totally opposite to Harley after she came out she didn't make a peep until the next day!

    Good luck tomorrow, I'll be thinking of Hooch. I bought a "soft" collar for Ruby when she was desexed recently, she was very groggy until the next day and never worried about her stitches, I didn't end up using the collar and like Di_dee1 I didn't make any kind of fuss of the stitches and she didn't react to or stress about the wound. I would sit on the floor with her at night and just stroke her head and body and keep her calm and relaxed.

    I didn't walk her, bath her or let her near the hose or sand or any dirt for at least 10 days till her stitches were out, and then a week after that, by then she was suitably cabin-crazy...

    He'll be fine

    When I had my male poodle done he was the BIGGEST sook about it all. Evrything went fine during and after the surgery but for about 4 days he just flat our refused to walk and had to wear the cone of shame.
    He had a little bit of a reaction to the stitches (just some redness) and had them out a few days early but other than that (and his constant sooking) he was fine.
