Default Keeping a Chi calm for 7 days???

Ok my little man had his surgery to get neutered on last Friday. He did great and has been doing great the first couple days were real rough on me when I had to give him pain meds. Anyway my questions how in the world are you supposed to keep these little guys calm and from not jumping on the couch or bed? Before I can grab him he is already up on them. He does not cry or anything.

I love reading all the information on this site.

Oh my goodness! A neuter is hardly a huge surgical event, IF he did not have a retained testicle. A crate to confine him is the only way to keep him half way calm. Other than that, if it was a routine neuter, forget about trying to keep him calm. When he gets sore, or tired, he'll take a nap!

Thank you so much. I figured he was okay but just needed the reasurance. It was a routine surgery and has bounced back real well.

Yeah. Usually with a neuter almost no pain meds are required and they are back to normal within 24-48 hours. Not giving him pain meds will help because when he feels pain he won't want to jump, etc.

Thanks. After 2 days i could not give him any more meds it was hurting me too much. He has been doing fine I do still keep his blow up collar thing on him for now cause he is such a licker but his incision looks great.

Thank you. I just had tomake sure because in all my life I have never had a dog neutered so I really did not know what to expect. He is doing great now and I love reading the posts on this website since I am new but have had my little man for 2 years.

Thanks to everyone
