@CorvusCorax:  I worked at animal hospital when I was in high school. Someone always stayed behind for an owner running late, especially if it was over something like bad weather (clearly not your case). But we always got stuck waiting, in bad weather. It is apart of the job. Someone wll have to stay there… its just what happens. They are probably not letting you know that someone will be there, because they want to pressure you into getting there as soon as possible.

I would say it isnt ideal to be picking the dog up so early but it isnt horrible. Chances are, their other appointments cancelled and they did your dog earlier than he was scheduled. I have seen lots of pups and dogs recover quite quickly from the anesthesia and operation. Some take longer to come around. If your hubby gets there and your dog is very lethargic I would be very cautious about taking him home. Hope they both make it home safe and sound in the icky weather!

@CorvusCorax:  Where in NJ is the clinic? I could go pick up your baby if it’s not too far.. I’d feel terrible if he got stranded there, I wouldn’t want that to happen to my pups. 🙁

@CorvusCorax:  Good! So glad everything worked out. I haven’t ventured out other than walking the dogs today, everything is mega slippery & I’ve heard sirens every time I’ve been out there. Tell your hubby to be safe!
