Hi, I am so nervous and feel so guilty about our puppy going to the vet to be neutered! he goes in wed. morning at 7am and we cant pick him up until noon on thursday! that seems like such a long time! sigh!!!!!!!!!! we havent told the kids as they will hate the thought of him being gone for so long. i hope he does ok there and that they take really good care of him! I am worried he will feel like we didnt want him anymore! when he comes home does anyone know if he will need to wear a hood or anything so he doesnt lick the stitches, or will we just need to watch him non stop????? and how long after do we need to take him back to have those removed?? Thanks for any input or reassurance you can give!
