Yep, he got the "big snip". My vet let me pick him up late in the afternoon instead of this morning (one of the perks of being a knowledgable pet owner plus having worked for them. ) Somehow, during the night, the little Stink Pot managed to get the Bite Not collar off his neck, and chewed some of the padding on it. : Obviously, I didn't put it on tight enough. Given Caleb's obssession with stray strings, you can be darned sure it'll be tight enough tonight!
Hope he's feeling okay & heals quickly.
Good healing thoughts for Caleb.
Feel better soon, Caleb.

Does it usually require an overnight stay?
We had Coop fixed the day he turned 6 months old. I dropped him off at 7:00 am and picked him up at 5:00 pm. The vet used a laser. He also didn't have to wear any sort of anti-biting cone.
I hope he heals up quickly.
The over night stay is up to the vets some do it some don't. Mocha and Smeagol both had to stay overnight when they had theirs done but it was at a 24hr facility where someone would be there to watch them.
Caleb says Thank you for all the well wishes. He's a little low key right now, but that's it. In fact, he just got up from laying behind me, and now is in the livingroom with Elmo- whining and moaning like always.My vet usually requires that spays & neuters stay over night. Obviously, he makes a few exceptions, tho. The Bite Not collar was my choice- I know Caleb. He has a thing about stuff that's different or out of place and strings, and he'll chew it. You should see the shipping mat he sleeps on- he's pulled at every thread in the quilting that has come loose. So, when we're not around, he'll be wearing the Bite Not collar, at least for a few days.Originally Posted by sixdoubleseven
