Don't feel guilty!! Though it's controversial spaying has health benefits for your dog. Plus it's so much easier on her and you when she comes into heat. Just think no putting her up, doggy diapers... lol Think of it this way as well if she was to get Pyometra it could cost you $600-$1000 to save her life! I'm sure your getting a much better deal on the spay! Plus your actually helping the overpopulation crisis, as well as being a responsible owner! She won't hold a grudge against you, she'll be grateful you came back to save her. Now the vet, that's iffy? lol
she's all weird and stuff.....
she didn't even recognize me when i picked her up.
she seems to be doing very well, although she's not eating or drinking, at all and i've had her home now for 2 hours :?
i take her out every 20 minutes, but all she does is poo
and it looks like it hurts
almost like she feels and thinks she has to poo, so she strains and maybe a pebble falls out
she won't let me look at her tummy, and i'm not going to force the issue.
i feel so bad for her
EDIT: she's also shivering a little bit and her skin is very warm around her belly :?
Bless her heart, she's probably loopy from the anasthesia. Does she enjoy her crate, or have a bed or anything? I'd put her in her own private place and let her enjoy some good peaceful sleep. Glad everything went ok, she'll be much better in the morning. :wink:
This is all really normal. It does hurt to poo because they have to tighten their abdominal muscles to do it. She's shivering partly because of the anesthetic and partly because she hurts. She'll be much better in the morning.
I know you are sad and worried but she will be just fine in the morning. Believe me she will start (if she hasn't already) acting totaly normal like nothing happened. If it was you or me we would be in bed for a week all dopped up.
today is much much better, thank you all.... and thanks Buster for the hugs!!!!
when i spoke to you all on Friday, she was all groggy, etc. well, my step-son's 18 bday was 4-8 so we all stayed up until midnight to have cake.... all went well, sang happy bday.... cut the cake.... and then,
yack!! projectile vomit!!! poor baylee wanted to give him a birthday he'd never forget!!!
awwwww poor Baylee --- I'm so glad Mags was already spade before I got her - I would have been the worrying mother like you!!! LOL Im glad Baylee is feeling better - from what I hear its a very quick recovery!
