    Default It's a Bully-less day/night at the Spork house

    Dropped off Ellie at the vets this morning for spaying, micro chipping, and nasal cauterization. Our vet has a policy to keep both cats and dogs overnight when spayed, so it'll be a quiet night at the Spork house. She squirmed around on the scales and her "rough weight" was 27.8lbs, but I'm thinking it's closer to the 30lbs range. Once I handed the leash over to the vet tech, Ellie trotted right on back without thinking twice about it or looking back. I'm sure she'll be fine, but she was NOT happy that she couldn't eat this morning. Quite the vocal Bully.

    Wow that is great they keep them one night to make sure they are okay. Ellie will be fine, I'm probably more worried about you making it through the night!

    I'll be fine, but the wife will probably be a head case later tonight. I think I'd rather deal with Ellie and her spastic moments.

    I hate that. There's always this voice in my heart screaming "Nooooo!! You're not supposed to want to go anywhere without me!"

    I'm sure she will be fine. I love that your vet keeps them overnight for monitoring.

    Well, clean the house tonight and watch a good movie or something (to keep your mind off missing your baby).

    my thoughts are with you and your wife, make it a special evening, nice dinner and movie together just to keep your minds occupied. Ellie Mae will do great and be so happy to see you when you pick her up.

    Just called the vet and everything with the surgery went great, so no puppies and she's had a nose job. They said that she should easily be ready to go home first thing in the morning.

    Well Ellie made it home with a shaved belly, tender nose, and sore shoulders. She seems to be doing fine right now as she's passed out in her crate with her favorite suckling toy. The vet said that she'll probably sneeze a good bit over the next few days from the nasal cauterization and that the discharge so far has been great and should continue to be clear as opposed to mucus/bloody colored. Her microchip went right between her shoulder blades, so she's probably pretty tender there. The microchip has been registered, so we're good to go there. Blood work came back fine as well. They said that she didn't eat much yesterday afternoon but that she ate fine this morning. She doesn't seem to handle pain very well as they had to start her on a pain killer last night and Ellie came home with a couple of pills for tomorrow and Monday. She's definitely very groggy, so it'll probably be a lazy weekend with lots of naps in her crate so that she can rest and take things easy.
