Question spaying tomorrow

hey everyone! Tommorow is butterscotch's spaying and we are quite nervous. what should we expect when she comes home, and how do we keep her sedate? should we expect any personality changes besides being a little calmer? and last but not least will the "cone of shame" annoy her and what should we do if it does? Thanks for any help you can offer!!!!!!!

I would put an onesie on her instead of the Cone of Shame. Put it on backwards so the the long back comes up through her legs. A slit for the tail and you are done. I have found a t-shirt seems to be more comfortable for them and it protects the boo-boo from other things.

TTFN,
Pam

Hi~~ Butterscotch is such a cute name

She should be alright tomorrow and probably sleep most of the day, and still have some of the anesthesia in her system. They will likely give you some pain medication,like motrin or advil-level stuff for dogs, if she seems to be in more pain than is 'normal', call the vet..although, most vets typically call and check up on her and see how you are doing.

You can give her a break from the cone or onesie if you can sit with her and watch her, but I wouldn't turn your back..they are compelled to inspect and lick down there.

Lots of kisses and love should heal her up in no time

Just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you and Butterscotch today. I hope she recovers quickly and uneventfully. I, too, recommend the onesies.
