Today's "the" Day
Just sitting here thinking about Kort. He's at the vet clinic waiting to be neutered.
I'm worried for him, he's never been under anesthetic before & he carries the mutant/mutant gene in collies. That means they have to stay away from certain drugs to put him under, as well as some pain relievers too. For a collie with the mutant/mutant gene some of these drugs "could" be fatal.
I have a fantastic vet who has already called me twice this morning keeping me up to date on what she is doing. She has also been on line reading about collies & drugs etc. just to be sure.
Kort also showed elevated levels in some bloodwork involving his kidney's, but we will talk more about that later when he is safely at home & I know more. He is having his urine tested while under also.
To say I am not worried would be a lie, I'm terrified, I wish I didn't have to neuter him at all......but......this will be the best thing for Kort.
So please don't judge me if you don't agree, just support my decision & help me get through this day.
