    advice has already been given, so I can only add. Be sure to let us know after she's home! We would love to see some pics.

    1) Thank you for being a responsible pet pawrent and spaying (or neutering) your loving companion.

    2) She'll be fine. Really. Bea had a hernia surgery also while she was getting her equipment disabled and she was running around like a nut the next day. Like it never happened. Oh...and then she ALSO had an allergic reaction to the sutures....so we went thru THAT too...and she was just fine.

    Let us know how it goes (which will be great, I'm sure)!

    I know how worrying it can be, and I can't add anymore to the advice you've been given. Let us know how it goes .. and post plenty of pics!!

    We always find the biggest problem is keeping them as quiet as they are supposed to be after it's been done!!!

    I am about to take little Uni in on Monday to get spayed. I am so nervous too. I feel ya. I know she will be ok. The thing I am wondering about is if I should get her pain meds or not. My first instinct is to go ahead and get her the meds, but I have read that they make them more active because they don't feel the pain and are more likely to hurt them selves. But Uni is pretty calm anyway, so I think I am gonna do it, I don't want her to be in pain.
    In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.

    Good luck for Izzy's spay next week.
    How is Raven doing?

    @cathryn -- good luck next week and be sure to update us on her recovery.

    @2BullyMama.. raven dId remarkably well. The vet said the surgery took all of 15 minutes. When we went to pick her up she was walking around in the back visiting with everyone acting like she was the queen. She was a bit miffed at us but once we got in the car she was happy. I would have to says she was back to being her crazy self later that night. I have had to remind her she had surgery and needed to take it easy. Honestly you would never know she had surgery. Thanks for thinking of her.

    @mendomama.. Get uni the pain killers. They didn't make her any more active just comfy. At least get a days worth if you want. When i had my tubes tied and I tell you the thing was no joke, mind you I have a very high pain threshold, so I wanted her to have them. Good luck with uni's spay. I will say a puppy prayer for her.

    @2BullyMama...she sure did better than I did. I think the vet that performed her surgery is pretty good. That all contributed to her speedy healing.
