Just wanted to update on Max's procedure. He survived! No visible sutures, they are all internal to reduce licking and chewing. NO CONE!! He's laying on his bed chewing on a chewy right now. He seems more upset about the shaved patch on his leg for the IV. Lol

Hopefully we have an uneventful evening.

Good to hear all is fine, but still keep your eyes open cuz healing wounds itch, and he may still want to lick the area!

I wish you luck through max's recovery too. Willy was neutered last Friday afternoon. I gave him a pain pill (Rimadyl) the next morning with his food. Although he appeared to be doing well I gave him another pill the next morning. That afternoon I decided to remove the cone. Big mistake. He licked, licked & licked, so I put the cone back on again. I didn't give him a pill yesterday morning but as evening approached I noticed him doing several of those quick sits. I decided to give him a pill. He seemed ok and went into his cage for bedtime on his own. When I let him out at 6 this morning I noticed he had vomited what he ate for dinner yesterday. I fed him, then let him out. He has had diarrhea all day. He vomited his dinner up again too. He has been drinking water which is good. I think he needs help for both the vomiting & diarrhea. The neuter incision appears good. I think the Rimadyl was harsh on his stomach. He,s going to the Vet tomorrow. If she thinks his incision is healed enough to withstand licking, I will leave that darn cone off.

My daughter had two golden retrievers that were neutered without having any problems at all. Sounds like Max will be like them. Keep us posted on his recovery.

Angl: Glad Max is doing so well. I like the idea of the internal stitches. I didn't get to go that route with my mpoo, glad you did! I wish Max a speedy recovery.

WillyBilly: Sorry to hear Willy is having a tougher time of it. It does sound like the meds may be messing with his stomach. Hope things get easier!

Sending best wishes for both boys to mend well and fast. And wishing their devoted "nurses" sufficient energy and easy nights.

Thank you. I had a can of Prescription I.D. Low fat food that the Vet sold me a while ago. I have been giving him a tablespoon or so of that. If he keeps it down I give him another spoonful after an hour and a half. So far, he has has three spoonfuls. That's all I'm giving him tonight. He seems calm and restful now.

Are you still giving him the Rimadyl? I never had a dog on it, but a friend of mine has a senior dog with arthritis that takes it. It sometimes causes her dog digestive upset. I googled to learn about its side effects and found this. I think you might want to stop giving it to Willy, until you speak with the vet.

Important Safety Information: RIMADYL is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication available only by prescription through your veterinarian. As with other NSAID-class medications, signs of RIMADYL intolerance may include appetite loss, vomiting and diarrhea, which could indicate side effects involving the digestive tract, liver or kidneys. Some of these side effects may occur without warning and, in rare situations may be serious, resulting in hospitalization or even death. If these signs occur, discontinue RIMADYL therapy and consult your veterinarian.

I discontinued the Rimadyl. Thanks for the information on it. I'm still restricting food and he still has watery diarrhea. We go see the Vet in an hour.
