Lola's spay recovery

I read a lot on the forum about the spay recovery and was prepared when I picked up Lola on Friday. BUT, our Lola was just normal. She ate, she drank, I pampered her when we went up the stairs and into bed, but other than napping a little more than normal, she has been her regular wonderful self.
Today, we just went out on the leash and she got loose and ran with the wind. She seems a bit calmer, easier to calm down but, for the most part, she is back to normal!

Good to hear Lola is back to herself. Dora was the same way, she came home and ran to her toys. We had to make her take it easy!

That's great that Lola is feeling so good! Of course, the only downside is that now you have to really watch her to make sure she doesn't hurt herself. The downside to them feeling horrible is that you have to watch them feel that way with no way to help.

I guess either way, it's still surgery.

There sure seems to be a vast difference between the girls in how they recover from their spay, but if Lola went up the stairs after her surgery and ran loose two days later, that's one of the fastest recoveries I've read yet. (Dora's too.) Honestly, that would freak me out. Maddie wanted to run and jump a couple of days after hers, but the last thing I wanted was an injury at the suture site, so I limited her to the best of my ability. I still get tense thinking about that.

Glad to hear Lola had an easy spay. I think it is just the dog. Shelby was just the biggest cry baby after her spay and drove us crazy trying to get at her stitches (wish I knew about onsies then). With Kodi's neuter, it was like it never happened.

Gryff was the same way with his neuter - like it never happened. Lola looks so cute in her Avatar. She's so teeny.

So glad your Lola is her normal self! My Lola took a lot longer to get active. Although I have contained her pretty much and she's been sleeping a lot since Thursday. She didn't sleep much the day after because her incision hurt so much she couldn't get comfortable. She has been making up for it the last 3 days! But she runs around like crazy for visitors and we are going to have along walk this afternoon.

Glad to hear she's doing well. I agree to make sure she doesn't overdo it.
I bet it's a relief it's over! I know it sure was for me.
