Had an interesting conversation with the receptionist while filling out the form for Jack. One of the lines asks if I wanted pain meds to be prescribed after the operation. The receptionist said that males usually don't need it as the surgery is so minor. For females, it's usually suggested since their surgery is basically a hysterectomy. However, if a man brings in the animal, he'll usually check the box if it is for a male and won't if it is for a female. The receptionist said she's gotten into disagreements with men bringing in female animals before on this issue.
I told her I'd leave the medication issue up to the vet. If he felt Jack needed pain meds, then he could prescribe them.
