    Hi all
    I dropped Minnie off at the Vets at 8:00 a.m.! Yes, I'm nervous. MinnIe seemed fine, Sandstorm didn't know what to think when I came back to the car without Minnie, sometimes I wish they could talk. It's going to be a long day, I'm going to call around noon, there are three procedures today and I'm not sure where Minnie is on the list. The Vet gave me the option of I.V. fluids and I.V. catheter, which of course I wanted. I also had the option of post surgical laser therapy, which heals the incision faster, so Minnie is getting that too, and is being micro chipped. The price for all this was reasonable, and worth it!! Have any of your pups had the laser therapy when getting neutered?

    Fingers crossed that all goes well but I'm sure it will. I worried terribly with both of mine (I waited and watched the surgery so my guys were always almost top of the list to be done). I've never heard of the laser therapy but anything that helps heal them faster must be good.
    Let us know when she's out of surgery, does she go home tonight? It's going to be a long day for you I imagine.

    I feel for you, Karen! Nothing worse than dropping them off at the vet and leaving them... you feel like a traitor! You love them, take care of them, and gain their trust and then BAM! Deserting them when they have no idea what is going to happen to them. Keep us updated on all your post-op therapy. I have not tried Laser Therapy on an incision. I did try it for Mr. Chance's bone spurs.

    Liam is going in on Monday and I just dread it!!!

    Gavin has alwas been so food motivated he LOVED the vets. lot of yummy treats! He always sat so sweetly at the front desk becuase he KNEW that all vets have treats there (he has been to several).
    Now at pet food stores he knows the treats are at the front counter...and at the UPS store they are behind the counter (yes, he heads right behind the counter and sits). I am such a lucky sheltie Mom for treats!

    Cooper was supposed to go in last week, but his Vet was ill and now goes in next week! He doesn’t get the post surgical laser therapy, they would micro chip but he was done by the breeder. I’m so happy that Minnie is ok Karen we put so much faith in our Vets! Feel better soon Minnie LOL (Lots Of Licks) from Cooper!! :)
