    Default Ellie to be Spayed

    Hellooo!!

    SOOOO - Ellie is scheduled for her Spay on 1/9/17.

    We have scheduled a consult appointment with her vet, as this mommy has questions.

    But those that have been there, what are some questions I should be asking??

    Also, what is some good advice for her recovery?? - hubby and I have off a couple days to stay with her, while we are at she is crated, and I have a nanny cam on her

    Just having a nervous mommy moment...


    Thanks and much Love,

    Melissa - Ellie's Mom

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhh Ms. Ellie........Understand the worry for sure! Joey was spayed when she was 6 months old, we picked her up from the Vet's office, she was groggy. We had a nice comfy spot, bed wetting pads covered by blanket in case she leaked a little bit. I tried to keep her as calm as possible but after about an hour nap she was going up the stairs!!!! So, best advice is have a lot of free time to keep an eye on her, no rough stuff, maybe a favorite toy to chew on calmly

    PLEASE keep me posted that day
    May the sun in your eyes be your ONLY problem today! Peace Friends!

    Dont forget the "cone of shame" takes room in a crate!
    Nyala was full of energy but that's Nyala. I had to always watch her like a hawk. She would do anything and everything to remove that cone. Even go in the veggie garden to yank it off by hitting it into the soil. She was using it as a shovel. So be prepared as they hate that cone.

    @helsonwheels Joey never had a cone, is that odd?? Do they all get cones? Joey never bothered her incision, actually she could not reach it even if she tried. Hmmmmmmmm, I'm curious

    All the years I had dogs(most were females) most all were spayed and not one wore a cone,not even the bullies. If it turns out she can reach the stitches,then she would need a cone. My problem was keeping Maude from licking someone else because she is a LICKER! Never had one single problem with any dog,I always trusted my vets completely.

    If you have a great vet whom you trust, no worries! She will just be a little groggy from meds, you can sleep with her on the floor with some warm fluffy blankets the first night! She shouldn't need a cone bc they can't reach anyway! Sending lots of prayers, and hugs!

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Hi all thank you so much!! I will keep everyone posted. I DO TRUST her vet, but want to visit with him before the surgery. Ellie's Vet is also a 24/7 hospital, so right now I do know she will be kept overnight


    Thanks and much Love,

    I guess not! Lol funny though, Nyala can still reach her belly as she does clean herself in that area. My GS had a cone when he was neutered. Them dogs are more flexible.
