Smudge gets fixed in a week!

... And his exam is tomarrow! Eek! Poor baby has to get X-rays and blood drawn, so it will probably be really scary for him. :[ Ill bring his favorite treats though, so hopefully it wont be TOO bad!
Im kinda nervouse about his surgery next week, but Im sure he'll be fine, and Im taking all the precautions. The only thing is, my last day of school is on the 11th, so I wont be there when my mom drops him off at 8:00, but school only goes untill 10:45 that day, so I will be there either when we pick him up or right after he gets home.
Does anyone have any advice they on how to make him comfortable when hes home, or anything I should do before the surgery?
Hes staying in my room, which is pretty quite, and I was just going to give him a blanket to lay on in his cage, with some food and water and hay and his litter box. I know its important that they eat right away, so I will make him an extra yummy dinner that night!
Just keep him in your prayers please everyone!

Just keep him quiet and let him rest. Keep an eye on him, make sure his hay is nice and soft. He'll be okay, my little guy was sore for a bit but fine.

Maybe they can give you some metacam for him. My boys were fine after they were neutered. Ophelia was fine after her spay but Penelope was a bit sore. It isn't as invasive for boys so I expect he will be just fine.

Good luck!

He should be just fine. The boys usually recover pretty quickly from a neuter. Just make sure that he eats and don't let him run around or jump up too much right away.

Thanks every one!
I have some updates... My vet was sick, so it had to be re-schedualed, and I found out the the exam is an extra $50 if it isnt on the day of the surgery. So I guess his exam and surgery will be on the 16th now. Im kinda frustrated, but I think it will end up better this way, because I can be with him the whole day, and I will acaully be able to focus on finals instead of his surgery on the last day of school!

That does sound better. You don't need distractions when it comes to school. It is very important to apply yourself. I know I sound like a parent but trust me that is coming from someone that wishes she had applied herself so she could have a job she LOVED instead of one that is close to home.....
There is a huge difference when you only like your job then when you LOVE it.

I'll be saying little bunny prayers. That does sound better - getting the exam and surgery done all in one day.

How long will the males be sore? Two or three days?

We will all be saying a prayer for Smudge in our house tonight! He should calm down a ton. It may take some time but he should be calmer. That is how Teddy was.
I will check in tomorrow for an update!
Smooches to Smudge.
