Thread: Nervous wreck over Izzy's spay

    Default Nervous wreck over Izzy's spay

    My girl is going to be spayed next week and I am a wreck thinking about it. My vet is confident in doing the procedure. Does anyone have any tips or advice on question I should ask.. or to calm my nerves!?

    Ask the vet what type of anestesia (sp) they use.... Someone can provide the name of the correct one for bullies ( I don't remember what it is called). Apparently it makes a difference with bullies.

    isoflourine. (sp) I was a mess when we got Miila spayed a few months ago too. It is so hard on us, BUT she will be fine. If you are confident with your vet and they use the right gas etc, she will be just fine. Miila healed up fine but she also had her cherry eye and elongated pallet fixed at the same time. Her eye was my main focus cuz she scratched it after surgery so really her spaying was easy. lol. Are you planning on using a cone? They have different types ou there. The soft sided cone from petsmart I think it is, works pretty well at making them easy to eat and get around. Being a spay it would be enough to probably keep her away from her tummy. It wasnt so good for Miilas eye, hence the scratch. haha BUT for a reg surgery I would probably use them again. Have heard of the donut type which might be good too. Never used it myself tho. Good luck. You will fel so good once it is all done anyhow.

    Make sure they do the blood panel prior to the surgery and that they use the Isoflourine gas (sp?). Raven is having her spay today. I feel so bad for her. They kept her last night because they were going to do the surgery early this morning. It is very hard waiting. Good luck when you have your spay day.

    Raven my love bug did well. Getting ready to run out of work and pick her up. The techs at the office asked if they could keep her. Seems prior to her surgery she had trained them to carry her around the way she loves us to, like a baby, they were loving it. She will be on her way home with the best pain meds her mamma could find.

    Good luck for Izzy's spay next week.
