Fiona let me step in here since you and I have been communicating etc. for about a week and a half. I don't think you realize how serious this surgery is. Its brain surgery. He could hemorrage and alot of other issues. Getting excited raises his blood pressure. I'm not a pro on this by any means but I do realize the importance of keeping them quiet. He should not be anywhere near where he can jump etc? I don't want to scare you but this is truly very very important. I can't believe your doctor hasn't told you this. I know I told you by e-mail and at that point they hadn't told you anything--hadn't even told you about leash to go bathroom etc. Was this a neurologist????? Do you have a business card? You should I would think.
