get neutered this morning and when we arrived at the vet. I noticed they were drooling. The vet. didn't want to do the surgery because he said they could be sick. They never did that before! As soon as I started driving back home they stopped their drooling!
I think they were just nervous because of strange sorroundings.
I am still keeping an eye on them to make sure the're ok. When I dropped them off home I fed them some can food and they ate just fine.
I guess they suspected they were getting nipped and wanted to get out of it!
Love the pictures. How old are they? the ones that you were getting fixed? are they 4 months old as the picture states or is that a older picture? im just asking because i want to get my now 3 month old bichi-poo fixed but was told obout 6 months of age. Is this common for them to ask that they are 6 months old? Also maybe you can help me, i was kinda embarssed to start a topic on this..LOL but the past few days my 3 month old pup had been trying to "hump" the cat and his stuffed animals. We were just at the vet a few weeks ago and his testicles havnet even droped yet. Is this normal? Does he even know what hes doing? MY gosh at 3 months old???LOL I wanted to call my vet to find out if normal and maybe we should have him fixed earlier, (even tho no other dogs around here just a cat and pet rabbit ) But this is kinda werid to explain to the kids what hes doing..LOL any help would be apprecaited... theresa
Blackqueen8, Thanks for the compliment, yeah all my dogs are soooo precious.
tapettyjohn, The reason why I am trying to get them altered this young is because one of them (Leo) is already adopted out and the person adopting him wants him already. The vet. said that the youngest he'll do them is 4 months as long as the testicles are descended.
I also got Lucy and Ricky altered at 4 months of age and they seem very ok.
I also like to alter them early to deter marking inside the house.
by the way, my daughter just went back home from school and said the puppies are doing just fine and no drooling at all.

Oh, the vet. didn't really examin them. He just look at them and said "drooling, something wrong...can't have surgery...don't want to be responsible" LOL in his Asian accent. (please Asian people, don't take offence, I also have an accent).
I guess my vet. still can't believe they made it through Parvo.

I think I might check out another vet, he doesn't sound too concerned. If he thought they were sick he should have tried to find out what was wrong. Well, at least they pulled the wool over his eyes, they may be secretly laughing to themselves, hey that drooling bit worked. They might do it again.ha!!! No snip, snip today.
no, I don't think he wasn't concerned. I already have a relationship with him and he understands my way of thinking. He knew that if I wanted him to check them I would requested it. I definately would of had them checked if they continued drooling longer. I knew it was nervousness or car sickness because they had been fine all morning till we took the car ride.
I have gone to alot of vets and he's the one I feel most comfortable with. We understand each other. His staff is great also.
