Charlie is scheduled to get neutered in less than a month. I'm sure the vet will tell me what to expect that night, but being a first time dog owner, I'd like to hear your stories on what that night might hold (will he just be sleepy?) and any problems with healing, like licking the stitches or anything like that.
The vet's office said if he's too tired to come home that day, they'll keep him overnight. Is that normal? I thought they pretty much always came home the same day.
Also, they don't routinely give pain meds after surgery. This concerned me, but my coworker has had all of her dogs altered there and has never had any problems. Am I just being over concerned?
