They say it’s for the best to have them ‘done’ – it makes them more affectionate and stops them spraying. The vet assured me that the chances of anything happening were slim. I felt guilt, it’s not a very nice thing to do is it? I tried to calm him as I put him into the car but to no avail. He whined all the way there but I had to go through with it – the bill is paid in advance. He had to stay in the kennels for one night while the anaesthetic wore off – that cost as much as the operation itself. When he got back he sulked for days and ignored me completely. After that it was everything I could have wished for. I recommend it to anyone with a husband – you just have to find the right vet.
