Logan has his appointment on Thursday, it's time. My husband has been trying to prolong this and finally I said enough is enough. Monday is a holiday in MA so  with the chance to spend some extra time with him I wanted it done this week.

My question is should I be concerned leaving him alone on Friday, I can take the day off if need be but wanted to save some time.

Ok, hubby just called and went home for lunch and today is day 2 with green boogies in the eyes, any ideas. Vet is back from lunch anytime but no answering now.

Eye boogers or tear stains can be cause by diet, or form while they are sleeping if they have droopy eyes.  Felix used to get big eye boogers when he was younger.
He should be fine on friday... how long will he be alone? He is supposed to rest anyway, so being in a crate will be okay.
Good luck Logan!

He is home for 4 hrs and then my hubby comes home for lunch to check on him then again for another 4 hours. I took his crate away and only give him 2 rooms now because he is very good about not getting into anything as long as there are no shoes around. Do you think I should bring the crate back out tonight to get him use to it again?

Hmm, that is up to you.  How old is he?  You don't want him to move around too much for a couple of days after the surgery.  Felix felt good the next day, so it was hard to limit his activity!  
If he is normally calm at home while you are gone he should be fine :)

Good luck with the neuter I am sure all will be fine.....I think the idea of working the crate back in is a good idea....:)

I would crate him the day after, it's a good way to help him stay calm after his surgery....Check with your vet on the eye boogers, green colored can mean an infection

Re: Follow up on green boogies

We went to the vet yesterday. For all to know green and yellow boogies are no good the vet said to call right away could mean an infection. Logan has conjunctivits and we have one more tube of medicine to add to the collection at home. He still will have his surgery on Wednesday...sorry Lo and Hubby you are still getting clipped :p
Cause of the infection who knows for sure, but most likely pollen it finally started to warm up, and that is 55 degrees....lol.

Ollie just finished his meds for conjuctivitis - he had pretty green and yellow eye boogies, too. It cleared up pretty fast!
Good luck to Logan on his surgery.
