My dog is scheduled to be neutered NEXT WK. I have the day off, so I can drop him off & pick him up. If anyone has any info to make me aware of, please let me know! I wish I didn't have to do it, but I guess it's better. My ONLY reason for doing this is to prevent testicular cancer & other potential health issues. (Getting a dog pregnant accidentally isn't an issue for us.) Thanks & send us good thoughts! I do have a question (if anyone knows the answer): I have the choice of having dissolvable OR non-dissolvable stiches. With dissolvable, the healing isn't nearly as fast & the vet requires 3 wks of inactivity. But w/ non-dissolvable, it's 1 wk of inactivity. My dog's not that active anyway, so that's not really the issue, but WHICH IS BETTER? I suppose the NON-DISSOLVABLE ones that heal quicker.
