Snoopy is very pretty by the way

Awww, poor girl! It's too bad her breeder didn't have the dew claws removed - it's such a simple little snip when they're just a couple of days old, one little yip and it's over - and so more difficult for them when they're older. She'll be fine - and so will you!

Get well soon, Snoopy! And thank you, Woojiebear for preventingmore unwanted puppies.


*shudders* I am NOT looking forward to Menolly's spay. I know exactly what's involved, but I have bad memories of when Annie was spayed. Poor thing was in sooo much pain that she moaned all night.

You know, it's really strange - I've had MANY dogs spayed or neutered (as the case may be), and rarely have had any in severe pain. They normally sleep pretty much through the first day, and lay around a bit the second - but are usually up and at 'em soon. It's HARD to keep them quiet. Even Lottie who was spayed at the same time she had her c-section - never 'moaned' or cried. She was on some pain/anti-inflammatory pills which the others weren't because her surgery was more major with the c-section - and she was nursing her puppies. I've only had one dog who had to wear a collar after spaying and that was my keeshond, Sasha, when she was spayed in 1987 in Sacramento. She kept chewing her stitches, so he put a collar on her - then she scratched them with her back feet, so he hobbled her. She was one pathetic looking dog! None of the dogs that have been altered by my vet here have had ANY problems - tho Chloe did have to wear a collor when she had her anal glands removed because she kept licking the site. Princess, Saddie, Chloe, Joe, Romeo, Buddy, Bailey and Lottie were all spayed or neutered here.

I find it funny that in the past, dogs were never given pain medication after surgeries. These days, vets remember to offer pain meds to pups after surgery.

I never forget to ASK for pain meds when my dogs need it. It's a reasonable thing to do.

awww thanks for all the well wishes!!!
it's been a process - poor little snoops is miserable.
i'm sorta purposely not giving her pain meds so she doesn't just think she's alright and start jumping around...sometimes she yelps a little or groans so i think she is uncomfortable...
i've basically been making her sleep for the last two days as i think this will make her heal the fastest. she's not a very happy puppy though - poor darling! the cone is so cute and she's started to play with it haha - maybe she'll miss it when it's gone.
i scratch her all the time and she loves it..

i found it interesting to have those pictures and actually see what goes on when you're not there anymore! hopefully they're not too disturbing for anyone.
Thanks again!!! she'll be all better in a few days

Poor baby! Her leg warmers are very stylish, though. I learned the hard way to get the cone. I picked Phoebe up the day after her spay and when Dave got home, I went to show him the poor babie's stitches on her little white belly and they were gone! Of course, by that time, the vet was closed and we had to go to the ER vet to have her re-stitched. She came home with a cone on.

Neither Cassie or Phoebe has pain issues after their spay. Though Violet was spayed 4 days before we got her, she was raring to go when we picked her up. It was hard to try to keep her mellow the first week we had her.
