Well, I've learned the hard way that the only thing you can control is yourself. Don't worry, your dog will be fine. Make yourself really busy, and before you know it , she'll be ready to come home. Do you like your vet, and are you well acquainted with him/her? Phone him up, and have a talk with him, he'll put your mind at rest. Complications with spaying are rare; so don't worry!
Its very normal to worry about your baby when they have surgery. I worry anytime mine go under anesthesia. Try to busy yourself with something else and before you know it she will be awake and it will be all over.
Thank you all. LOR, yes I remember you being nervous. I actually thought about you this morning, lol. The overnight stay is probably bugging me too, but someone will be there overnight...so I guess I can be happy about that.
Gosh, I hope I don't feel like this after I get a 2nd dog...goof grief!
Forgot to mention, before leaving the vet this morning, I asked if I could visit her this afternoon, lol. He said it wouldn't be advised because she may get worked up. It makes sense, but I had to try anyway--I work right around the corner though!
Pebbies...I have two dogs and three cats and get nervous everytime I leave them at the vet. 3 of the 5 had dentals the beginning of the year and I was nervous each time. Of course they didn't go all on the same day....had to spread out the heart attacks.
I meant to update yesterday evening, but never made it to the computer. The vet called around 3:40 to say her spay went well. She had one tooth removed & was just waking up. So, I'm happy my worst fears were put to rest. I'm not going to call them today--I'll wait until I get off. I know they'll call if something happens. Now...I need to find a way to make time fly...literally!
I know how you feel. I was nervous about my foster's spay, and I didn't even know her yet! I called that day to see how she was and if I could see her, and they said not until the next day. I just wanted her to know she wasn't in it alone... what with being surrendered and her bro already being adopted. I'm glad your baby is okay! Just keep her quiet when she gets home. She's gonna want to act normal and play, but you have to be careful.
She's home & I couldn't be happier! I think she's miserable though...blame the collar. So far she's been pretty calm. That's a good thing especially since she's a jumper. I'm supposed to keep this dag on thing on her for 7-10 days! Wish us luck :)
