Definitely....yes, the knowledge of the wee one walking to the bridge is there but to know that there is someone there that can help him if he gets into trouble is a huge relief. Eating even a little is worth a lot ciao
Great! Most hospitals (unless they are 24 hour ER) don't have staff overnight. But it is usually still safer to have the sedated and confined. (Many owners don't follow post op instructions). I'm glad your vet took him home! We do that if we feel its best for the animal. You have a great vet, keep him/her!
I understand that they don't and why however I was concerned because he would have only been monitored for 3hours post op and he was suppose to need hourly temp/bp/ blood glucose check's. I work as a nurse and I wouldn't leave a fresh post op pt by themselves after a major operation. I'm just so glad that he's doing good and hopefully this will buy him a longer healthier life. He's such a happy boy that loves everyone.
That incision looks fantastic!, Well, I mean no pus, swelling or visible redness. What a great job. Do you go back in 10-14 days for a suture removal or will you be doing another surgery after he's fully recovered?
So you may think I'm weird but I noticed this morning the incision went right through where his penis should be. I couldn't find it and we were pretty concerned. Surely everything must be working or we would know by now. Still not 100% sure where it is but I did watch him potty in the litter box and there was a wet spot on his tummy and in the box. He seems to be doing good this morning. Eating his favorite soupie and poops look good. I have to work today so Tim is watching him. It was hard to leave him this morning. Even though I know he is okay I just wanted to stay home and baby him!
