spaying

My baby girl is getting spayed today. I miss her already, and am not looking forward to her coming home, and being out of it for a while. I hope she doesnt try to mess with it, and recovery is quick. Do yall know if she can have a bath afterward? We are leaving town the day after. I know they always smell after a day at the vet,

my guess is probably NO on the bath... at least for a few days... why are you going out of town so soon after surgery? Is someone staying home with your baby???
Tillie was REALLY out of it the first 24 hrs after surgery and took another 5-6 before she seemed to be mostly herself MINUS RLH and fetch and walks... it IS major surgery, so it can take them awhile to recover.

I would say no to the bath too. Ache was VERY uncomfortable and in pain the first 2-3 days. After the third day, she began improving slowly. It was not an easy recovery for her. Good luck with your girl.

I don't hardly remember Molly's spaying. She never skipped a beat. No cone no nothing. Piece of cake for us and her.

Leyla was spayed in December. The 1st night she was out of it but the next day she was more alert. Make sure you don't let her run around even if she appears to be able to! she has to rest bigtime. Just follow your vet's orders to the letter. Let us know how she did.

I wont be leaving her. She will be with us. We travel in a 45 ft. coach with all the comforts of home. Traveling is for our work. She is staying overnight at the vets. I will pick her up tomorrow by noon. We leave on Sunday. The travel is for work.

You probably should not bath her for at least a week or two. Will she be using a "cone of shame" or a onesie?

I don't remember Buffy having any special odor after her spay. She was out of it that evening but better the next morning.

It also was her first evening with us as we adopted her from the shelter and were finally allowed to take her home after her spay.

Never heard of using a onsie. How does that work for going potty? Last dog I had, didnt have to use anything, hope it is the same for her.

with the onsie, just un snap it and roll it up when it is potty time!
but be warned.. this DOES cause significant matting if your hav is in full coat!!

We bought onesies but did not need them. Our vet didn't think we would need them. Luna was 6 months old and did not bother with her wound at all. She took 1/2 of 25 mg Rimadyl the first and second day and a 1/4 the third day. Our vet gave us more but she really didn't need it and we don't particular like that drug. I hope your furbaby has had as easy a time of it as ours did. Luna was druggy the first day but wanted to be actively normal the next day. She is a very active dog and we had a hard time keeping her quiet for the duration.
