Default My puppy is getting neutered. Any advice?

We're donating his jewels away this Thursday. What should we look out for? He's a small, six month old dog (Schnauzer/Poodle mix).

How do we keep him from licking his wound? Will he be bite us since he feels pain and may get defensive? Will he eat less? What about walking? Will he be unable to walk for a few days? Should we have those pee pads? He's never peed on those before. He tears them up.

Will he be in pain when he pees?

If he is a hyper dog now, it will be the best 2 days of your life! My dog was really hyper before he was fixed, but because of the medicine they gave him, he was pretty much out cold for 2-3 days afterwards. It was so quiet around the house, he just laid next to me on the floor and slept. He was fine after that, no licking of the wounds or biting or anything. After a few days, he was a hyper puppy again, just a little lighter in the rear section.

Neutering is generally less of a big deal than spaying. When my last cat was neutered, the incision was so small they didn't even bother to stitch it shut, just let him clean it himself and heal over. He had no other negative behavior changes besides getting lazy. Anesthesia might make him really groggy and give him a case of the shakes afterwards, but that should only last a few hours.

Spaying my dog scared me. The incision was much smaller than what they used to be, but all she would do when we got home was lie on the floor and quiver all night. Not a happy camper at all.

My cat barely noticed the lack of nards. He was too busy trying to remove the Elizabethan collar preventing him from picking at the drain in his leg from his abcess surgery.

let him hump your leg one last time for old time's sake before you send him under the knife. its the least you can do for your best friend.

he'd do the same for you...and you damn well know his tail would be wagging the whole time too.

Isn't this something you should be asking the vet? Jeez, dumb question.

I'd probably wait a little longer, myself.

Getting fixed kind of stops their personality development, and at 6mos they aren't really fully matured yet. Just my $.02

As for those other things, none of it will be an issue. Keep an eye on him and if he wants to chew or fuss over his sutures then get him a lampshade.

Enjoy the entertainment value of a drugged-out doggie wearing the party hat (cone) when you get home. Funny to watch the pup trying to negotiate corners and doorways with the thing on.

Not trying to hi-jack but I have an almost 7 month old lab. My wife is insisting on getting her spayed ASAP because she's worried she will make a big mess in the house when she goes into heat. Should we do it now or should we wait?

DO it NOW!!! The sooner, the better anytime after 2-3 months. They can get knocked up real young, and you don't want to be attracting every intact make in the neighborhood. Why wait?

To OP, I work as a vet assistant in a mobile spay/neuter clinic. It's amazing how quickly the boys are up and running around like nothing happened after having the nuts cut out. Seriously, 95% of the time, within like a day you wouldn't even know they had major surgery. Maybe some licking of the stiches, but most places will send you home with the lampshade to prevent that. But many dogs don't even need it, just a precaution in case he is licking a lot. Yes, it is surgery, but I'd say don't sweat it.

Females benefit from spaying earlier. Less chance of cancer and so forth later on.

My dog got the Neuter and I swear he looks at his missing balls all the time. Today he pee'd on my Dyson and I was ticked off. I yelled "Speedy" and he looked at his missing balls, if you are happy he looks at his missing balls. My wife can't figure out why but I know if someone cut off my balls, I would be looking for them to come back all the time under any new circumstance.
