Better than an Ecollar is an infant onesie: get one for a premature baby and cut a hole for the tail. It works beautifully!

Even when we take our foster critters up to the clinic we don't leave them overnight because the trip is 65 miles each way. We just stay in Roanoke, either help out at the clinic or do some "big city" stuff.

Please send Dr K to us in middle TN!!! You have no clue how badly we need something like that out here. Even my vet that's been a vet for a million years won't do juvi S/N. It's the only problem I have with him.

I've had several chis, and all spayed and neutered. We always picked them up that evening and brought them home. It was easier on them, and on us. Good luck! (We also called the vet like nervous parents to make sure the surgery went all right. Every time. The vet knows us well now.)

The only reason for your dog to stay over, is if there are other health issues involved other than spaying.
If not the reason for keeping her is about $150 in the vet's pocket.
Your vet will try to fill you with guilt about this. You need to find a new vet.
If your vet refuses to let you take your dog home the same day, tell him you will go to another vet and see what he says.

Default tomorrow is the day :(

she gets spayed tomorrow. I was watching her run,in the yard this morning, playing with not a care in the world. Guess she won't be running around like that again for a few days.
Viralmd--with my other female dogs, I never used anything to prevent them from being able to lick the incision. I don't want them to put an Ecollar on her and I'm undecided about even going out to buy a onesie, given that it's not been an issue in the past. If she should begin to bother it though I will.
So, this is a nervous mommie today asking for prayers for her to be ok during surgery. She just seems like such a teeny thing and is my baby..........

thanks



and I know I'm worrying and being dramatic for no reason.............tis my nature. I love my dogs!!

Hope the surgery and recuperation goes well.

My chihuahua was three when she was spayed. She and our other dog (a chihuahua/terrier mix) were done at the same time, he was six months old. When I picked them up at the vet that same day, they were both wide awake. Neither of them ever acted lethargic or like they were in pain.

To be honest, I was kind of disappointed to not be getting a couple of days of quiet from them.

Glad that she's fine. Now, the hard work: keeping her quiet for 10 days.
