I am a little more than worried. I guess residual affects from losing Chipper. So Casie goes in for his surgery on Thursday AM; and if he is okay at 4:30, I can bring him home....but they are recommending he stay overnight, and the Vet checks them about 11:30 before he goes to bed; then I would pick him up in the AM.
How can I be so in love with the little guy when he has only been with us for a month....seems like so much longer. Someone tell me not to worry,he'll be fine, and enjoy the night off.

beagle smooches,
Cathy
Casie and Cobi's mom

Cathy, you were in love with the little guy before you even got him

He will be fine! I'm sure. You can ask the vet to visit him in the afternoon after the surgery, and then pick him up in the morning.
Usually it's not necessary for them to stay overnight, but if the vet recommends it....

Cathy, I too was worried when I had Gabby spayed this past Friday. Today is Monday, and I'm fussing at her not to zoomie around the yard with Bailey. Leaving Casie overnight might not be a bad idea. It's good that the vet is being cautious. The hard part is keeping them inactive for the first few days!!

It's natural to be worried, but the boys usually come out of it just fine. Personally, I prefer leaving my dogs overnight when spayed or neutered, but that's just a matter of preference.

Cathy, I totally understand whay you're going through. I lost my precious beagle Molly in January of this year, and we got Maggie in February...neither my husband or I could stand being without a beagle. When Maggie went in to be spayed in June, I was a basket case. In my heart I knew she would be OK, but I was petrified of the 'what ifs'. I also knew I would not be able to take losing another dog.

Obviously, Maggie's surgery went fine and she was back to her rambunctious self the following day...just as I know Casie will be. Please try not to worry, Casie will be fine. I will be thinking of him (and you!) on Thursday.

UPDATE on CASIE: He got sick on the way out to the vet, threw up all over my dh...poor guy (I mean Casie of course HEHEHE) He had dropped in weight, and he's not that big to begin with, so .4 of a lb was a lot for him, then blood work to make sure he could take the procedure. We left. They called (late) I knew something was wrong. They said he had more bleeding than they expected, but he is an older dog being neutered, vessels have had time to grow. So they recommended leaving him overnight, the vet checks him at midnight, and then has a monitor and camera for anything that could go wrong in the night, AND he lives right behind the clinic....how much better can it get, I didn't get that kind of observation with my c-sections. Like Gale, though, I know nothing would go wrong, my gosh, the vet must have done thousands of these, but this is MY BABY! I just can't do another loss.....not yet; as if it gets easier.

So he is staying overnight, gives Cobi a chance to be spoiled rotten again....and he will like that, although (spooky) he's sleeping in Casie's kennel right now...hmmmm, maybe he does like Casie?

thanks for your support....you are wonderful. What did I do before I found you all?

Cathy, Casie's and Cobis' mom.

OH, I did tell him that his other mommy ordered this not me. Even though I would have done it anyway, but he doesn't have to know that!

Thinking of you and Casie tonight - please keep us posted and sending lots of good thoughts that everything goes fine from here on.

Buzz has his appointment to be neutered next Friday now... deep breath.

How is the Case-meister today....well did he really have surgery this week? You'd never know it, except for the occassional licking, he is just as feisty as ever. We've had our daily wrestling matches and races around the house, even took a long walk yesterday...so he's doing great! Swelling is way down, and now you can tell that he isn't the man he was before Thursday.
What a doll. I have to get this scanner fixed so you can see my boys, they are just great together.

Thanks for asking.
Cathy.

Great news! Buzz is scheduled to be neutered on Friday so I'm so relieved that Casie is back to himself after only a couple of days... and also so happy to hear he is fitting into your family so well, too!

Please let me know how Buzz came out with his surgery. Casie is back to 100% --- lively and bouncing bunny. I call him my everready puppy. I'll hope and pray the same for Buzz.

**(I thought neutering was supposed to calm them down, boy , did I buy that farm)

We dropped Buzz off this morning for his snip - so of course I'm a worried mom today... he just looked so small and scared when we left him. Fingers and paws crossed it all goes okay - I'll let you know!

Sure hope things went well. Does he have to stay the night? We were going to pick Casie up, but he had a little bleeding problem because he was older, if it's done when they are younger I guess the vessels don't have the chance to grow as much. At any rate, let me know how he is doing, and mom too of course. WE moms and dads have to stick together. Sometimes I think Casie and Cobi know more about things that I give them credit for. :eek:)

Thanks Cathy! We just got the call the Buzz is ready to be picked up, so he doesn't have to stay overnight. Can't wait to see the little guy!

Buzz is back and curled up beside us as we watch TV this evening. He seems fine - a little sore perhaps but he ate his dinner and has been fine on a couple of walks since he got home. We tried to give him some freedom by taking off his cone, but he started to lick right away so conehead it is for now...

I'm so glad it is over for the little guy - I tell him he will feel better tomorrow, and then even better the next day, and that the worst is over. They loved him at the vet too - he was such a good little boy.

Okay, this might be a strange question but I don't quite get it... are there different methods for neutering? I just had a close look at Buzz and he still has all of his bits - but there is an incision halfway along which suggests that they just snipped the connection between... But Moosie (who was neutered before we adopted him) doesn't have the back bits at all anymore - they are just gone. I'm confused!
