    Hi, I would ask your vet. I had Blossom spayed 2 months ago, and they sent me home with 5 doses of pain meds, but she only used 4 , she acted like nothing had been done. She was supposed to be quiet and not run or jump for 1 week, yeah right. The first night home, she jumped off the side of the couch. It was really hard to keep her quiet. She shouldn't be in pain on her first night home as the pain meds they get are good for 24 hours. We were told to give her the meds the next day, so be careful you ask first as they are pretty strong, and may be too much if you give it early. Hope everything is okay, and she feels better soon.

    I have no experience about spaying, but I do know pain. I would call and ask the vet.

    I'd be calling the vet too. Emma was spayed back in June and she was hopping around that night. If she had any pain I sure couldn't tell. If she won't stay still you may need to crate her - don't want the stitches pulling out. A spay in general takes a bit longer to heal than a neuter does though. Lets us know what the vet say and give her a hug.

    Thanks for the kind word and the concern. This is why I live this community.

    She seems to be ok with the pain. I did give her the meds early this morning. Te only issue or unusual this I noticed is that she's been sitting on my sons beds (where she usually is) faced and staring at the wall. She's never done this before. Other than that she seems ok. She about an jour ago and did not throw up. She is still wearing the cone hitch makes her run into everything. I can tell that she hates it.

    I have never used the cone. If they don't or can't reach the surgery area, what's the point of making them suffer more. Just my thought

    I agree with Sherry, she will not likely be able to reach it ( most bulldogs cannot ) and she may feel more comfortable with it off. Hope she is better later today, she should be.

    Awwww...I too would ditch that cone! I'm sure that's why she is acting strange. They can't see or maneuver ..and like David said..they can't reach anyway! I'm also with RaRett ..why not give something for pain...I hope she is ok..and yank that cone off!

    Glad to hear she is feeling a little better this morning. I would ditch the cone too, as far as the weird crying noises get used to that, we've had Bacon for a year and he still will make new crying whining noises that we've never heard before, some of them are really funny.

    I agree with everyone else, ditch the cone. We have never put a cone on ours, even when Jewel had her eye surgery.

    Aww bless her...I'm glad she is better today

    what pain med did you get? I'm guessing its an anti-inflammatory? Please be sure to give it with food. Our Bully's tummies are very delicate and she could end up with tummy pain
