Tia was speyed on Friday (a week late due to a cancellation by my vet) and boy do we know about it!! She is doing really well - a little too well!! My vet said not to let her jump, run, etc. all the common sense things but its nigh on impossible!!

I expected her to feel a little bit sore which may put her off wanting to jump around as her usual beautiful self does normally - but no - its like she's not had anything done. I'm really worried that she's going to hurt her internal stitches.

I'm making her have more time in her crate than usual and using a lead when she comes out but its very hard. I feel so guilty - and so worried that she's going to hurt herself.

Don't feel bad your doing the right thing. Good time to practice obedience keep her busy that way so she doesn't get to bored.
When I was a young girl we had a cat and it was spayed as well, she thought she could jump as always, cats you can't keep down. She jumped through and open screen and ripped her stomach wide open and her insides were somewhat out. My dad wrapped her up and rushed her to the vet and she was zipped up. She was fine but a little more cautious.

what a good girl! :) isnt it amazing how dogs dont seem to baby pain...or notice it...lol.
I know! I'm beginning to wonder if when we mere humans feel pain its partly psychological! I mean if we'd had done what our pooches have we would be off work for 6 months recouperating -there's something not quite right somewhere!! lol

I hope she heals quickly. She obviously has no problem bouncing back into her normal activity. :)

Dober hugs from Titus and Jada.

We are going to be getting Jada spayed very shortly and I am not looking forward to trying to keep her less active.

Good luck keeping Tia calm.

I don't have any advice for you because Mensa was real good about taking it easy after her spay two weeks ago. At least for the first week.

I kept her seperated from my other three dogs to keep her form rough-housing with them. I'm sure they appreciated it! It was like a vacation week for them.

The Vet gave me instructions to limit her food and water intake for a day after she got home. But Mensa didn't want to eat or drink anything for 24 hours.

We even went for a short walk Friday night. I did put her prong collar on to make sure she didn't want to pull too hard.

Tomorrow she goes back to get her stitches out.

Tia will get better every day, and before long you'll get the pay-off of not having to watch her like a hawk during her heat cycle.

Its a nightmare!!! She's been bounding around this morning like there's no tomorrow!! If she makes it through this without any mishaps I'll eat my hat! Even trying to do training with her turns into her jumping around like she's on springs!! aaaarrrghhhhh LOL
