Those of you who know of Dylan might be thinking he's been very quiet recentley,well most of you know he has been having a traumatic time, and his hormones have made his life a misery,it's no secret that Dylan has a huge amount of problems,but through all his problems he has kept us amused with his antics,well,the time has now come to have him castrated,it's not something i probably would have done if my arm had'nt been twisted,and my vet always said he would only castrate if i threatened to shoot Dylan,but the poor baby is demented,and on the go most of the day,he did have a hormone injection,it made him sleep all day,a little depressed and made him stop eating,he was losing weight to the tune of 3lbs a week,the vet then gave him an injection last week and a very high dose of antibiotics,he has maintained his weight the last few days and has been eating bits and bobs,so on monday we made the decision,for Dylan's sake to have him done,the op does not bother me as it's only a minor one,what does bother me is what will Dylan be like after,i would hate to be adding to his allready full quota of problems,his not eating,his OCD,his arthritis and his behavioural problems,the thoughts going through my head are unbeleivable,so heres hoping all Dylans fans will be thinking of him to-morrow,will keep you posted on his recovery,

Hi Lynne,

Poor Dylan, sounds like he's had a really difficult time recently, and it must be difficult for both you and him. He may be one of the most mischievious labs, but if there was an award for one of the 'bravest labs' i think Dylan would certainly deserve it.

Will be thinking of you both tomorrow, and i hope he gets better really soon, also on the eating side of things too.

Hugs to Dylan, from Brad & I.

All the best to you Lynne,

Julie

I'll be thinking of you Lynne. I know it's no good sawing "Don't worry" because we always do, but it will soon be over.

Kind regards, John

Daft doggy

Barney has been castrated... and I think he kept part of his brains down there too...because he is a happy but very daft dog now!

Sure Dylan will be fine!

If you didn't see it on the other neutering thread recently, here in all it's glory is Barney's experience at the vets when he was castrated
Goodbye to all that (Story starts halfway down the page)

Cheers

Thank you John,i am sure Dylan will be fine as well,the only worry both myself and the vet has is that with all his problems we could make them worse by castrating him,but hopefully he will continue to be the mad villain he has always been,but without those damn hormones,

Hi Lynne, just caught up on your pm and this thread - you don't need to ask to know that I'll be thinking of Dylan and you tomorrow. What time is he scheduled to go to the vets?
Please give him a big hug from me and Shadow, and keep us posted. Take Care,
