    Defaultneutering question

    It's been too many years since I had a male neutered, and was just wondering what to expect when we have Champ snipped. With Shadow, we had to keep her quiet (HA!) for a couple off weeks after she was spayed. How long do you have to keep a male quiet?

    A few days and the vet said Riley could go back to doing normal things. It's hard to keep them quiet for any amount of time, isn't it?

    Oh yes! After the first day, Shadow acted like nothing had happened and wanted to run and retrieve and catch frisbees. She was miserable when she had to stay quiet and only go out on the leash. It's going to be hard now, with the two boys, to keep one quiet. I'm really glad it only has to be a couple of days, and not weeks!!

    Jackie as long as they have stitches they should be kept relatively quiet.

    Oh boy, that means about a week, then? These guys are nutso when they don't get an outing to the park to let off steam. Bill got them into a twice-daily routine and at 9:00 am they are prancing around expectantly, waiting to go run and play. It's not going to be fun when they can't go for an entire week. :-\

    The recovery period is usually 10-14 days, depending on what your vet says.

    Yep- that's why the soft sided crate is up and there are stuffed Kongs in the freezer. Caleb got his tires deflated Wednesday. And by Thursday was acting like nothing had happened.
