Bitsy is getting spayed tomorrow. I am so nervous. Poor little thing has no idea why I'm taking her in and I feel so guilty for having to take her. I took tomorrow off from work and Monday as well so I can stay with her. I want to make sure she doesn't over do it. The vet said that she should be all done by noon and that I can check on her by 1:00 p.m. and pick her up by 5:00 - its going to be a long, long day. Please say a prayer that all goes well.

Praying that all goes well...try not to worry. I'm in the same position, Buckeye gets neutered on Monday and I'm nervous as well. I think I may change the appt to a Friday so I can be with him on a weekend....worried about him being home alone for the remainder of the week.

Advise anyone? I do live close enough to check on him during the day but don't know if that will be enough.

Sending thoughts and prayers to Bitsy. None of us is happy about doing it but it just has to be done. Pick up a baby onesie so she won't bite at stitches. Just cut a hole for the tail:) I got a few preemie onesies in a package.

If you pick a Friday, I personally think that it's important to check what's going on with your vet on a weekend just in case something happens and you need them.I would suggest the same things for humans getting anything medical done on a friday. My guy had to stay overnight so a weekday worked well (as it turns out I have a 7 day a week vet practice but I know that's not the norm.) I'm sure everything will be fine but find out from them who if anyone is on duty on the weekend or how you can get help if you need it. Mine had diarrhea after the anesthesia and probably the stress, but he had a complicated neuter and 8 teeth pulled. Good luck and don't worry!

Thanks for the advice and that's a good point about getting it done on a Friday. I did speak with the vet and decided to leave Buckeye's appt for Monday, as she feels that things will be okay as is. I'll definitely check on him every day and prayerfully all will go well. I'll post an update when I can.

Hugs

Do you have any friends, family or neighbors who would just love a little alone time with Buckeye so he won't be alone a lot? Or even a pet sitter who can check in when you're gone?

Leandra -- Sending prayers and positive energy that Bitsy is doing well. It always seems to be much harder on us human moms than on the actual fluffs.

Please give us an update when you have time.

Thanks so much! I'm nervous but I'm gonna be brave for my Buckeye...I went on a website called Bullwrinkles and picked out a treat recipe to make tonight for him with my grandbabies. Think I'm feeling a little guilty about what's coming on Monday.

Darla - I'll give you a little laugh before the nasty deed is done on Monday.Maybe you won't feel so guilty. I think you missed this post: http://spoiledmaltese.com/forum/66-jokes-cartoons-more/106279-tylers-funny-fathers-day-card-dh.html
