Default Molly's spay

Molly turned 6 months last week and so yesterday she went to be spayed. Well so much for me thinking she'd be in pain and a bit quiet! If it wasn't for her shaved tummy and a nice neat incision you'd never know she's had an operation yesterday. All she wants to do is play, and she was most unimpressed with not getting to run off lead today. So far she's leaving her stitches alone, but I think she's finding the shaved parts a bit itchy.

I'll put some more pictures up when photobucket decides to play nicely...

I agree, great news she is feeling so good. Lucy also had a very easy time when she was spayed. The vets here keep them overnight so when I got her back she just rested for a day and then was quite well after that.

That's great news. When Nipper was done much older than 6 months I think it was well over 12 months as the vet said you couldn't do it earlier I wish I had asked on here first! I now know one of the reasons why my vet said wait because for every Kg Nipper weighs it would cost 10 per Kg well it worked out it would have cost 160 that is 16Kg x 10 = 160

May I ask how much was Molly's spay? Any way I found a charity who did the spay for 75 much better price and they did a perrfect job you couldn't see the incision either. I had to keep Nipper quite still and calm for 10 days. she was given a 24 hr pain killer which really did help her so she slept for quite a lot of the 24 hr period but the 9 days phew It was fairly hard to keep her calm but it was fine bunnyphone you could try a old clean 'T' shirt and make 2 - 3 holes at the opposite end to the head and put Molly in this 2 holes for her legs and 1 for her tail LOL This will stop her getting at the stitches. She will soon be back to normal for you. Give Molly a gentle hug from Dave&Nipper ATB

I am really happy that all went well. I always giggled when the vet said to keep my dogs quiet after neutering...how does one do that when they are very active dogs???? LOL. Hope Molly has a speedy recovery.

I'm glad things went so well! It's a lot more concerning when they mvoe slowly and seem groggy.
