Our English Bulldog is going to be neutered on Monday. Does anybody have experience how he will be after the surgery? He is 16 months old. I have had another dog neutered but it was a small dog and he was only a couple of months old.

What Brian said - if you're picking him up from the vet on the same day of the surgery, take him home and make him comfortable with a nice place to rest to recover completely from the anesthetic. Don't let him get too active - no jumping up or around and no running. You may or may not notice a change in his behavior after he heals up - some folks do, some don't. By that, I mean a calmer demeanor, possibly, or more laid back attitude....but again, that may not be your experience. He'll be just fine - you're doing a good thing!

Thanks. So it will not be much different than with my small dog. I thought size matters but it seems not in this case. I feel awful having to make him go through this but I feel it's better for him.

I'm sure your vet knows this but would just double check that he uses isofluorane anesthesia - it's supposed to be one of the best for brachycephalic breeds (bulldogs, pugs, bostons, pekes etc). I'm sure he'll do just fine!

I will ask them if they use this. Thanks.

My dog has been neutered today and is doing great!. I was a little nervous today, but they took care of him very well and I want to thank everybody for their advise.

WOW! Thanks for mentioning this, we have 2 pugs and a bulldogge and one of each is due for surgury in the near future. I always get real nervous and scared about the anesthesia, I didn't know there was something special out there for these breeds.
