You're welcome!

Personally, I think the advice to check to see if there is a vet tech or someone who stays with surgical patients left over night in a clinic is excellent. A friend of mine had her scotty neutered and the vet insisted that it stay overnight. No staff was on-hand during the night and there was a violent thunderstorm (her dog, goes wild over loud sounds) and tore out all the stitches and was a mess the next day.

My vet works closely with the emergency clinic and all pets are under supervision 24/7. As they should be !

It's absurd to draw a human analogy -- a hospital where patients recovering from major surgery are left alone without nurses or other staff overnight.

There is not 24 hour care at my vets office, but they don't have a problem with you bringing your pet home as long as you are willing to sign that you are doing so and that you will keep an eye on them. They want them kennelled for the night since they are still a little doped up and they don't want them crushed in your bed, since they might not squirm out of the way.
