    Poor baby girl and you too, nothing worse than seeing them suffer!
    Will keep y'all in prayer and please, let us know about y'all. Hopefully,
    it is from the stress of surgery & being so sore back there. Sure hope
    you get some members to give good tips that help with this recovery.
    Welcome to EBN and when you're up to it, post pics of your pretty girl.

    Hello! I'm so sorry that you are going through this. I can honestly say that the first few days after our girl's surgery were the most stressful of my life! She leaked poo constantly... she and I were both beyond stressed. It took about 4-5 days but it resolved and she is now back to normal. She is actually seems so much happier and energetic than prior to surgery. I think her tail bothered her way more than we ever realized.

    Hang in there!! I now think it was just that she was in so much pain and/or had numbess in that area (its very common for people to have numbness surrounding surgical incisions so I'm sure dogs can too). I'm sure that in a couple of weeks you will both be feeling much better.
