Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Just had his preop bloodwork drawn should have results tomorrow and then schedule it for next week. At five months he weighed in at 32 pounds! He has begun to mark a little, and has a few stubborn baby canines that will need to be pulled, although one literally fell out this morning. So hopefully the rest come out before next week Very Happy.

In any event its been a long time since I had a male puppy, but as I recall they act like nothing happened with this surgery, true?

That has been my experience (at least after a day or two of rest). But it doesn't keep us from worrying. Saphire is going in on Monday and I am a nervous wreck. I know its a standard proceedure but I'm still worried.

As for the baby teeth, we are having the same problem with them being stubborn. Saphire had snaggle tooth for like a week before the one fell out and the other one fell out while my daughter was playing tug-o-war with Saphire and about scared my daughter half to death. She came into the kitchen almost in tears because Saphire was bleeding but she couldn't tell from where. Went out into the livingroom and found the tooth where they had been playing.

Definitely use the collar! I just had Indy neutered a few weeks ago, and all he wanted to do was lick at it. He was very sore and just wanted to lay low for about a week. Each dog is different, though. Our foster pup just came out of surgery jumping and running as usual and never noticed a difference lol.

Qannik was neutered last month. He was a little out of sorts for the first 24 hours, but then completely back to normal. We had to keep the cone on him for 7 days though, because any time we attempted to take it off, he immediately started licking his wound area.

Tama's big day was yesterday! He doesn't even stitches... They glued his incision shut. He was so happy to see us but day one back at hone and his is sleepy, groggy, and out of it. I have only had female dogs so we were worried too that he might act differently! Lots of love for the big boy today!!!! ( he is 8 months and 62 lbs)

Balon did fine with this surgery, it was two weeks ago, he had to wear a cone for 8 days because he was licking, but he has been fine! Healed up beautifully!
