Thank you so much everybody for all the great advice!
I think I will hold off putting on the onesie unless she's tryng to lick because it sounds like the matting may not be worth it. If I do use it, I'll do as you said Ann, and put it on backward and snap around the neck for potty time - nice tip!
She'll definately get a bath today!!! I had forgotten since my last female dogs, how it can take quite a while for the stitches to heal. I don't want her stinking like both salmon AND surgery for 2 weeks! Yech. Plus, I want to get in lots of "low odor snuggle time" if she'll have it.
I'll also be the usual aggressive psycho dog mom when I take her in because I'm going to ask them to shave as little as possible. They used to shave my maltese in a 2 inch strip all the way around the leg and she'd have a big tuft on the end and it would take months to grow back in... grrrr...
Thank you Jan for the tip on Rimadyl. I'll be a pain (stupid pun) and ask for an alternative if possible. I wonder if baby aspirin might help. Ann, is Metacam just for the swelling of boy parts?
Man! I'm getting stressed out. With my doggie track record this year... Every time these little angels go in for a procedure you know there's a risk... I just couldn't bear it... I really couldn't.
