Default Reassurance please?

So Mylo is booked in for his neuter on 6th Feb. We're paying extra to have the blood work done first, they apparently do that in the morning before the neuter. One of my friends at work takes her pets there and so do all her family, they look good from the website and they've been there for years. She said they did everything to help her hamster rather than just put it down and someone said you can tell a lot about a vet by how they treat the small animals?

Anyways, he needs to be done because he's starting to mark, he shows signs of aggression on and off but only towards Males. Male humans....which is weird. And of course we have Willow. I've been scared about this bit since before we even bought him since a friend's cat died while getting spayed and with things that have been going on around the forum lately it hasn't helped. Either way I'm very scared and nervous about it. So, basically I want reassurance and advice on anything I can do, will need to do etc. I've taken the day off so I can stay with him and he obviously has his crate. We get one of those neck cushion things as part of the treatment.

I know you can't tell much from a website, but what do you guys think of the place? Welcome to Warbreck House Veterinary Centre

don't worry mamma! He will be fine!!! Great idea to do the prebloodwork. That really helped ease my mind when Miya went in

I was a wreck before Toby got neutered. But after the first day, he was totally back to his old self. The hardest part was keeping him from being too active, jumping, etc. As long as the vet does blood work beforehand, any potential issues will be discovered. Obviously there is no 100% certainty that he will be fine, but it is definitely rare for complications from a neuter.

It's hard for us to remember how we worried when one of ours was "done"! Just remember that 99% come through just fine. You are doing the right thing with him.

I really feel for you, as you know I was planning to get Rolo done this week but decided not to for the time being. I will be worrying right along with you when your little boy is being done! I'm sure he will be absolutely fine, don't take any notice of me! I'm not saying I will never get Rolo done, I'm just not happy about it at the moment. You've done the right thing booking him in and your vet sounds a lovely person. On reflection that's what I should have done, just booked him in. I know all our fur babies are precious but i feel Rolo is all I have left to remind me of my friend that died. Her house has sold now, I was still looking after it until recently. Now all my connections with her have gone. (For those who are wondering what I'm waffling on about i cleaned for her for 10 years and then ended up being her carer as she became ill. She left me some money and I used that to buy Rolo). I'm sure your baby is equally as precious, I feel bad for not getting Rolo done but I just can't bring myself to do it. 😥

Melissa, he will be fine! Vets do this all day, everyday! It's a super easy procedure and very common. Getting the blood work done beforehand is what I would recommend too. No one will operate on a sick dog, and I'm sure Mylo is as healthy as can be.
To be honest, I didn't even think twice to neuter Leo! But Leo's vet spayed Lola a few years ago. I think in most scenarios complications occur in pets who have underlying conditions. Not all pet owners will pay extra for blood work (my vet requires it), this is where they find things that would prevent them from even doing the surgery. Just relax, it will be ok!

Thanks for the reassurance everyone, i really appreciate you taking the time. I really would pay anything to keep him healthy and reassure me about this procedure. None of my childhood dogs were done so this will be a first for me. I just hope everything goes smoothly. He's my first dog of my own and he's such a sweet boy. It pains me just to have to put him through the procedure full stop.

Rolo's mummy - I totally understand. It's so difficult to just bite the bullet and do it and there are so many worries. If you have no problems like aggression, marking or a female around then you don't absolutely have to do it and there's no problem with taking some time to make sure you're sure in your decision.

The blood work really reassures me. Who wouldn't pay 30 ($50) for the peace of mind?
