we were lucky and just had Koda in for the day. no overnight stay. She did extremely well and she was only 7 months old. I think Berta is right with saying the hardest part is keeping them calm so they don't rip the stitches. When I couldn't 100% focus on her I just blocked off areas of the house so she couldn't run around and had to stay somewhat calm.
You have to remember its best for the dog and she will be ok. before you know it she will be healed up and jumping around with ease.

Arya did fine as well when she had her procedure done . I was amazed at how fast she healed. If remember correctly, she took 1 pain pill and kept spitting the rest out, even with pill pockets. Her only issue was having a bald belly for almost a year.

If there are stitches, remember that they start to itch as they seem like the wound is almost healed. Keep that cone on until that time has passed.
I will try the towel next time it is needed. Great tip. I also had to keep Sitka tethered to me to keep him from his last wound.

Khya and I are going through the spay thing.
First thing - she is not like any other dog I have had in the past. She was dropped at vet, and once placed in the back with her stuffie, she was so loud even I was abit taken aback. Vet said within five minutes of waking up from surgery - she did not stop howling.
When I picked her up that evening - she was the only one so upset. I thought she was supposed to be groggy for up to 12 hours afterwards???
Anyways it was a hard drive home. She was not happy. And she was stapled, with 2 layers of stitches inside. Had to give her a tranquilizer that night because she was trying to jump.
She had 3 days of pain meds. We are now 6 days in but after Day 3 she was jumping on her favorite sleeping ledge.
I am kinda amazed at how fast she seems to have recovered?!
Vet said he has never had a dog behave like this post surgery...
The vocalizations are mind boggling. Try keeping a straight face when she sounds like Chewabacca.
Yes - ear piercing at times!!!

The most important thing is to keep her away from those stiches! Someone here posted about their female that tore her stiches out and later died. IT was one of the worst things I've ever read about. You can search on spay in the forum and their posts should come up. Really, gave me night mares, I wouldn't let Darmok out of my sight for much longer than was necessary I'm sure.

My dogs have been the opposite. A little anesthesia went a long, long, long way.
Glad to hear that she is healing well. Keep us informed.
The Chewbacca reference made me chuckle. My little gal does a howl that includes a sort of growl that sounds like Chewbacca. I couldn't figure out why it was so endearing, but you nailed it!
