glad it went well, lazer pom off is my preferred method, they heal up quicker with less complications. I went 2 hours away to have lazer done instead of a half hour away to have pom on traditional done on the last two boys I got lol.
N yeh no experimental surgery on my babies either lol neuters can go horribly wrong even with experienced vets, there was a glider last year that suffered severe burns from a neuter gone wrong and it was a office I used once for neuters a few months before, not sure if it was the same vet or not but I certainly didn't take my next boys there to have theirs done. I know it was a freak accident but I also didn't like how the office handled the situation.
Mossssst of the time neuters are performed without a hitch but I'm one of those if it could happen to only 1 in 10,000 it will happen to me kind of people lol.
Don't worry and fret to much, the gliders will pick up on your anxiety and be more anxious themselves, the biggest thing is knowing what to do if they bother the neuter site.
IF one of them bother the neuter site you will need to make an e collar if the vet didn't provide one.
http://gliderhealth.com/slfmutl/ecollar.html e collar directions. Links don't seem to be working on here so you'll have to highlight and copy it to get there
IF an e collar is necessary because of open wound I would also separate them until the glider is healed to prevent the other glider from making the wound worse.
Getting the e collar on is a royal PAIN. Put the glider on countertop or table that they won't have any traction on, kind of gently hold the glider down with one hand and slip the e collar on with the other and tape it in place. Once it's on you want to use your finger tips to gently pull the neck skin forward, this will help to keep the ecollar on. If the glider is crabbing ( and he will be ) let him try to get it off, if he still has it on after about 10 minutes it's on tight enough, if he gets it right off, make it tighter.
After care (with e collar on ) we typically suggest open environment pouches for gliders with e collars. You may not have one yet, so just make sure the glider can get in a pouch with the e collar on.
We use bird water silo's for food and water when a glider is in an e collar, this allows them access to food and water on their own( the trough fits in the cone ) without you having to hand feed.

They are awesomeeeeee and easier to clean than most silo's in pet stores, and you get 4 for less than the price of one petstore one, but in a pinch pet store ones would be fine.
Since your feeding CL you'd just put his portion in the silo and fruits n veg in a shallow dish or even plastic lid.
You can use neosporin on the wound, just make sure it is the original formula NO PAIN RELIEF.
We also use Vetericyn VF ( I prefer this )
Lastly, if something goes sideways... don't panic, the calmer you are the calmer the glider will be.
Hopefully you won't need any of this info, but if you do now at least you are prepared so there is nothing to stress over.
lol at shutting it hubs, my boyfriend loves ours too all 10 of em despite me only supposed to be getting 2
he baby talks to them, gives them treats every morning n helps me feed at night.
He gripes about and all the crap I've accumulated for them LOL2 yrs ago I filled his motorcycle trailer full of glider stuff

But he especially loves when i call him at work freaking out
He never misses work even if he is deathly ill......but boy will he leave early if I call about the gliders no matter what it is.
