    Also one little tip! If your vet tries to get you to have her wear a cone of shame, an alternate to that is a tshirt of baby onsie it worked great for our Marge, it stopped her from being able to get at her stitches easily and was much more comfortable on her than a cone. Especially with her fat neck and head ha.

    I never actually fastened it. I just let the butt part of it hang down. It was long enough that it stopped her from trying to lick or chew her stitches. I am sure Moolah will be just fine! She should be very sluggish the first night and half way back to normal the second day, then by the third you will have a hell of a time trying to keep her calm! Ha

    As you said Moolah slept all of yesterday. Today she seems still somewhat off but is eating.
    Thanks for the onsie suggestion, she has the cone but its a soft kind, very movable but she still keeps fussing at it. I mentioned the onesie at the vets and the reply was you can try it but a lot of dogs just chew through it...so I may wait another couple days and see how she goes...

    Yeah I guess it all depends how destructive your dog is. Marge didnt fuss with it at all, but she was use to wearing shirts and stuff so she didnt bother with it.
    Good luck

    Thanks
    Our Moolah was spayed on Thursday, it is now Saturday and it has been just about impossible to keep her on the quiet side. She is jumping up and down on furniture, running like crazy and no amount of tellingher to be quiet works. The only thing would be to put her in her crate to make her be quiet and I dont want to do that to her all day...any suggestions???

    Re: Spay Surgery this week- what to expect??

    I'm curious how you guys all kept the pups calm as well... Quella's spay and dew claw removal is scheduled for July 14 and she turns 6 months on July 30. I'm honestly praying that she does not go in to heat before her surgery. If Q is out of her 4x4 X-Pen by then, I might have to put her back in to keep her from being a squirmy wormy. I'm also thinking that she can spend up to an hour in her crate every few hours for a nap, which should buy me some time to keep her calm.

    Does anyone has pictures of their pups spay scar (minus the lady bits)? Quella's belly is so soft and hairless and she always shows it to strangers (which is a bad habit), but I'm hoping the Dr. can somehow lessen the development of scar tissues and 'bubble' type healing, as I love rubbing her tummy.

    XoXo from Quella La Roux and her mommy too!
