    Big Day!! UPDATE Post #5

    Advertisements
    Big and bittersweet day today. Lena is going in to be spayed.

    The sad part is that I feel horrible putting her through surgery and knowing she's going to be scared and in some pain.

    The good part is that YAY! No more heat cycles!!

    Oh, another sad part - no puppies ever I would have loved to see little dachshund puppies.

    our dogs just got spayed, they had their stitches/staples [staples because our yorkie ripped her stitches out] taken out Monday. If you leave your dogs alone, to go to work or the store ect and cake them or w/e i recommend getting her a cone from the vet, we learned the hard way lol

    Aww poor baby. We're getting Meesha spayed when she turns 6 months, I won't be looking forward to it either.

    And she's home! Very groggy; they did the surgery this morning and we picked her up about 2:00 PM. She was happy at first to see me but then I noticed that they hadn't trimmed her nails so the tech took her back to do that; after the nail trimming, she wouldn't even look at me! LOL!!

    Since she has black nails, I am terrified to clip them myself.

    Right now she's all swaddled up in my king size comforter on the sofa and she looks completely out of it but that's okay; she needs to be on bed rest for seven days and this will pretty much be the only day that she will be all sleepy.

    But she's now spayed, her nails are trimmed, her ears are cleaned, and she is 100% heartworm free!

    Yeah; the instructions say:

    "To ensure proper healing of the incision area, do not allow your pet to run, jump, playor rough house for at least 7 days after surgery. Short leash walks (15 minutes or less) are okay but all other excitement should be avoided until the surgery site is completely healed."

    It won't be too bad; she was on the same restrictions for about four months when we first got her because of the severity of her heart worm issues.

    Wow, I had no idea, they didn't say any of that, and ours were running and jumping off the couch/bed ect.

    I figure I'll just keep her uber quiet for about 48 hours and then just keep her from being spastic and hyper, really. As long as everything is healing well.

    Aww glad she's doing well!!

    And yes, when we neutered our family dog back home, he was on bed rest as well. Well, not really bed rest I guess, but we couldn't take him on walks, he couldn't run around or jump off sofas.
