Keep him calm and quiet! My new little humper (a stray we picked up after Christmas) got snipped last week. He broke his external sutures open and has had to wear a cone for several days and be on antibiotics for a week. I bet with the bath, the hair cut, the surgery, and the cone he wishes he was a free dog again.

ahh don't feel bad, He'll be grateful when he no longer feels the need to pee on everything, and he won't have anger issues
Don't feel bad; you are doing the right thing.
Our choclate Lab had his procedure last week.
It went fine. It was done with laser, with much less pain and faster recovery. And with subcutaenous sutures, so no stiches to remove.
He stayed overnight, and was ready to go the next day. He was just the same, personality-wise, and the surgery didn't seem to bother him at all. We just went home with Rimadyl for pain - no cone, no antibiotics.
Not always true.. Ive known many of boy dogs who have been fixed..who still mark EVERYWHERE..so not a cure all for marking.
I actually feel more sorry for the female dogs..that is a major operation..the boy dogs..well its just a simple snip snip
Sorry, it's actually the Cone of Shame. Love that dog, love that movie!!
OP your doggie will be fine, it's much more invasive for females, your pup will be fine. Even our female was fine, the day after surgery she was running around like crazy, just like it had never happened. LOL
Don't feel bad...you are making sure he stays as healthy and happy as you can make him!
From a guy's POV it ain't so simple.
It's better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.
Too funny! My son was in first grade when Max got fixed. He raised his hand first thing in class that morning and told the teacher his dog was getting fixed that day. And then a girl in his class asked, "Why? Is he broken?" The teacher laughed so hard, she had to call and tell me this.
I know, I was making a joke.
I work at an SPCA, I know all to well... we do a lot of this
I just moved up my kitty's "fixing" appointment today. He was scheduled for Feb. 22, but I asked for it sooner because he is starting to get "sniffy" around the house and my other male cat is also doing a lot of sniffing.
At our last appointment the vet said we could do it then because he weighed enough. I told her that since DH was just recently "fixed", I could not deal with two whiny recently-neutered males at the same time. She assured me that Ziggy would not whine!
He's home, he's hyper, he's well, and we didn't need a cone of shame. Thanks for the good wishes.
