Well today Riley got neutered! Just brought him home about a half hour ago. He is still groggy and sleepy. Poor little guy, it's odd to see him so quiet he's usually such a firecracker! I have been told he will be back to his normal self tomorrow. So tonight he just has to rest and get a little bit of food.
I spoke with the vet beforehand and they used the dissolveable stitches on the inside and she "glued" the outside incision. That way it should be less irritating for Riley. Also, his incision in front of where the testes were which should make it a lot easier for him not to harm it when he scoots his butt on the floor. I was concerned about that earlier, that he might scoot and get the stitches caught on the carpet! Now i don't think that will be a worry.
He was also microchipped so that makes me happier too.
Riley does still have his heart murmur, luckily it was not a factor with anaesthesia and he got through the procedure with no problems. I do still wish the murmur would go away. Maybe if it's not gone by the time he is 1 year old, we might have him rechecked.
I just wanted to update everyone. Thanks for all the info. about other neuter experiences (Judy, Karlin, everybody!), it was very helpful to me. Now i just gotta wait for my boy to get back to normal. He's so quiet, i better go give him a kiss for being such a trooper!
