You should not feel guilty for doing what is best for her and the animal community. And, as my vet assured me when I picked Libby up after her spay a couple of weeks ago, she will not hold you responsible. She will always remember that you were the one who tried to make her feel better. I would not fuss so much about the cone. We used it when she was inclined to scratch or play and took it off when she was resting. I lOVE the onesie idea, and I'm going to use it next week when Baxter is neutered. Also, don't be shy about asking for more pain meds. Libby wanted to be active much earlier than the vet wanted her to be, and she had a reaction to the sutures, which resulted in a longer recovery. The answer was more sedation to keep her resting while she healed.
It will be over before you know it.
