    Default Regina is getting spayed Friday and I'm nervous

    So it's time. Little miss attitude Regina is getting spayed on Friday. I have to drop her off early in the morning and they want to keep her for 24 hours after her surgery, so I pick her up the next afternoon.

    I like this veterinary center a lot and it does make me feel good that they are also a 24 hour emergency center so she won't be alone at night. I'm just nervous and worried that she will be scared. She has never really spent a night away from us and definitely never one without Ruckus. She has stayed over with Keith's parents and my friend watched her once but that's not the same.

    Sigh. I'm just a worried bulldog mamma.

    Thanks
    And dont worry Regina will do fine. Nyala just had a bit of food n water with her first pee so that is a good sign. She's sleeping again so that's good to. It's just that damm cherry eye she has to wear a cone. Wasn't for that she wouldn't be banging into walls. Expect Regina to be groggy. Im sure she's a little trooper.

    Yeah she's tough, I'm just worried that she'll feel abandoned. She gets so much confidence from Ruckus and he can't be with her. I am such the crazy dog lady....

    Jackie, I totally understand how you feel. I was a wreck when Murray was neutered. I'm sure Regina will do great, she won't be along and you trust your vet. Murray and I will keep you both in our thoughts and prayers and waiting to hear how well it went

    Bella and I send love to sweet Regina.

    I swore Bella hated me after her spay. My crazy psycho dog couldn't even move without yelping in pain. It crushed me. But, you know what? That lasted not even 24 hours, and she was soon jumping out of my arms.

    Regina will know she's not abandoned. She'll feel your love, and she'll have company all night at the vet's office.

    I'll be thinking of you.

    She will do great!! Most of the time that she's away she'll be sedated or groggy then resting. As soon as she's fully aware, she'll see you and be suddenly happy! You worry bc u love her! And before U know it, just like Calli Doll said, she'll be acting herself again.

    Hi Jackie, I totally understand how you feel, it is nerve wracking when our babies go for surgery. Blossom was spayed and had cherry eye repair when she was 7 months old, and she did amazing. She went in early in the morning, and came home late the same day. Don't worry that Regina will feel abandoned because she will be very groggy after she wakes up, and she will be on pain medication so will mostly sleep. She will be in good hands and in a good place with staff who have experience with post op care. You will want to keep your two guys separated from each other after she comes home, because you want to keep her calm and not let her run, jump or play for about a week or she may pop her stitches. Blossom was on pain meds for the first 3 or 4 after she came home, so she slept a lot. I placed her crate in my bedroom and left the door open, but I closed my bedroom door to keep Dozer from bugging her. It's important to keep her as quiet as possible because she had so much energy, she jumped off the couch the first day at home. If you let Regina and Ruckus stay together, he will want to play with her. I know she will do great, and it's amazing how fast they heal and bounce back.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Sending you and Regina BIG BULLY HUGS! Joey got spayed the week before Thanksgiving, at 6 months old, my feelings were the same as yours for sure. Try not to worry. I got to pick Joey up later the same day, I know that the overnight stay is added stress. Is there any way that you can bring her home later that same day? Why does she have to stay over night?
    May the sun in your eyes be your ONLY problem today! Peace Friends!

    Honey, we know that no matter what we say or even that its true (lol)
    you'll worry, that's what we do! Regina will be groggy & sleep thru her
    time there and so cute I'm sure they'll check on her...a lot

    Sending big hugs of comfort & update us (try to stay occupied with mindless
    diversions, like movies & alcoholic drinking).


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
