Thanks. It went really smoothly. The dr. says he has a lot of repeat offenders with this kind of thing so has to do this a lot, but was really shocked at how perfectly everything went. Aslan was an angel the whole time he was there. He was a super easy patient to work on, and really calm and well behaved. It took very little anesthesia to put him under, and he came back to consciousness quickly and easily. When we picked him up, he was very alert and curious, and very snuggly. As soon as I got him home, he went totally psycho. He was racing around, running into things because his reactions were slowed by the meds. He tried to ride our great dane!!! He kept chasing his tail. It was all we could do to keep him from injuring himself. Finally, he decided he was rabidly hungry and was going to damage things or hurt himself trying to get to food. So, I fed him a little. He held it down, had some water, and calmed down a LOT. He wandered around being amazed by things (think "wow, man. I never noticed how white the walls were before...") for about half an hour, then was starving again. He had some more food, more water, and has finally passed out.
