My wild little girl had her wings clipped today, she was spayed. We had it done with laser but I can't say it went easy at all! I heard from a lot of people what a breeze it was but I held her when they woke her up and she started to scream BLOODY murder...and wouldn't stop! The tech called for someone to bring her a tranquilizer but it never showed up.
We both held and comforted her for a long time, she eventually after what seemed like an eternity quited down some but kept on crying for at least a couple of hours. I know they can have a bad reaction to coming out of anesthesia mentally but I've always held my dogs when going under and then coming back up again for surgeries and never had them react like this. It was so horrible.
I really felt it was not only mental but also pain so talked them into giving her an injection and also an injection of cerenia for nausea as she was drooling and that did quiet her down a lot but not completely.
I stayed with her there for a couple of hours past when they said we could go home just to be safe and have been home for a couple of hours now, she is not moving much she just sits in one place with her head down.
Right now she is under my chair just standing there kind of leaning against the chair leg not doing anything.
I have offered her a very small bit of food in a small amount of water a few times and she is eating and drinking well. But feel just terrible about the awful day she had. This morning she was so happy, playing and being sillier than ever it was so hard taking her in.
I had a minimally invasive hysterectomy this summer and really was a breeze, no pain or anything. Nothing like what poor Sophie is experiencing. I hope my sweet baby girl sleeps well tonight and feels a lot better in the morning!
