Lexi Post-Spay

I'm a new member and I just wanted to thank you for the advice that you gave me (especially the onesie - lifesaver), as well as advice I gleaned from the forums regarding after-spay care. Lexi was spayed yesterday and she is doing really well. A little uncomfortable and not much of an appetite, but that is to be expected I suppose. Here's a pic

Oh, she is just adorable in her little pink onesie, with her pink bunny and pink blankie. I know each day will get better for her and she'll be back to her puppy self in no time.
Feel better soon little Lexi.
(she looks like a cute little stuffed toy!)

The onesie just prevents her from licking/biting at her incision. The vet said that it is more common for males to fuss with the incision, but Lexi tried several times to get at it, so keeping her in the onesie has worked really well. I just snap the two outer snaps and her tail goes through the middle - voila! I didn't want to have to use the bitter apple spray and this has been a good alternative. Good luck with your spay - ours has gone smoothly (at least the first 24 hours), and I'm sure yours will too.

Okay I was just wondering because I have seen a lot of havs in onesies and was really wondering why. Thanks!
