He'll be just fine. Neutering is one of the safest procedures out there in terms of surgeries. Love that face, he has that kissable, snugglable area on the sides of his nose/cheeks that I just love.

I agree. By Friday he will not have any idea why you don't want him to jump on the furniture. Scotty hardy let it slow him down. Scary, but necessary.

Aww - he looks very healthy - why are you so worried?

I had Griff neutered at 2 - he and the 2 dogs that came in before him all were just a pulling on the leads like nothing had happened to them when it was time to come home!

Do take the big E collar - I made the mistake of trusting Griff - I ended up bringing him back to be stapled up. Do avoid that - they get used to those collars right quick.

Best wishes - I'm sure he'll be fine.

I dont blame you for being nervous with him being heartworm positive. Is there a reason he cant wait on the neutering till after his heartworm treatment? We will say a prayer for him.

Yes. He keeps getting jumped at the park just for being intact and standing around, and I hate it! I want to be able to take him everywhere. I had the same problem with my Whippet (not aggressive at all) dogs would go for him just because he wasn't neutered.

Oh I didn't realize he was heartworm Positive.. Is he currently being treated? If so I'd wait until he's stronger. Zoiks! He sure looks healthy!
