Default Neuter day - hope I can bring him home tonight

I brought Sushi at my vet this morning and I was suprise when she told me they would keep him until tomorrow. I worked at a vet (years ago!) and neutered dogs were sent home the same day. She said they will evaluate him and see if I can bring him home today. I would prefer him here with us than all alone all night at the vet;o(

I know I have no objectivity here so what are the rules at your vet? Did you bring your male Spoo home the same day he got neutered?

Can't wait to have the call saying everything went ok!

I have never had a male dog neutered (Bob was 4 years old and already neutered when I got him). But I definitely have friends who have brought their dogs home the same day, and I brought a female dog home the same day. I'm sure others on the forum have more knowledge and experience than I do, but I think I'd be pretty insistent on bringing the dog home.

Hugs! I am going to question my vet before we schedule the appointment. I do not want them at the vets office overnight, especially if no one will be there. That is just scary and worrying. They need to be home where they feel secure and loved and where they can be watched. I hope you receive the call soon. Please let us know what happens. My thoughts will be with you and Sushi.

We brought our female dogs home the same day they were spayed; the vet gave them a 24-hour pain injection and he called later to make sure they were okay (they were). Does Sushi maybe have a special circumstance to make the vet feel that way (an undescended testicle or something)? Although usually neutering is not a complicated surgery, occasionally a neutering is not as straight foward as usual, as you probably remember from your days working in the vet's office Hope all goes well today!

Never heard of a neuter that stayed overnight. We didn't even leave the girls overnight. Lila had luxating patella surgery and came home same day. Only one who ever stayed overnight was Nicholas when he had both knees fixed at same time. We picked him up next morning but he stayed at 24 hour emergency clinic that was monitoring him.

I was initially told that Sammi (female) would have to stay the night, but on spay day, they said she could come home. I was so relieved, and so was she. Unless there are complications, it's better to recover in the comforts of home.

Thanks for all your reply, Sushi as no special circumstance but this clinic is now a big animal hospital with all the most recent technologies, maybe someone is monitoring at night, I did not ask.

I want to bring him home anyway so I will insist, I didn't get the call yet;o(

We insisted our dog come home same day. I did not like the thought of her waking afraid, in pain and alone. There is no reason your dog would be better off in a cage at the vets office with nobody around than she would be at your home. It is however better for the vet because they can bill a lot more if your dog stays over night even though they will likely have no staff there between 5 pm and 9 am.

I've always brought my poodles home the same day.
