    Default Positive thoughts for Dillon please...

    Dillon is having his neutering op on Saturday, and the vet is extracting 4 canine baby teeth which simply refuse to come out and once they've done all of that they're taking some bloods to test for Leishmania (Sand fly) prior to having the vaccination (they have to test negative for the vaccine to be given). OK, OK I know its all relatively minor stuff but I am already getting very anxious indeed.....I'm giving him extra vit c and Arnica - anyone else got any tips for after the op?

    Hope my precious boy is OK............

    I'm sure he'll be fine and its normal for you the feel anxious HOWEVER having just been through a surgery (minor) with my 4 yr old son I would say try not to worry so much that your pup notices. I hear cavaliers "just know" when their owners are sad. Try to stay up beat and "you"ll be fine baby, see you after". I'm sure the vet will give you all the info you need on after care and I'm sure you will spoil him up a little more a few days.

    Good Luck,
    Melissa

    It's good to get as much as possible done in one go, and in my experience dogs recover quickly and without problems - they take such things far more in their stride than their owners! Let us know how it goes.

    We do all understand because you cannot help but worry over these little dogs.

    After the operation ............ he will be a little sorry for himself & you will feel really guilty and keep telling him you are sorry.

    You will need to give him some easily digested soft food for a day or so but you will be surprised how quickly they can get over these things.
