Looking for suggestions for our Pup who is being fixed tomorrow.

Hello,

Our 10-month-old Boston Terrier/Pug Pup is getting fixed tomorrow. I know it's going to take awhile for her to feel herself again. Any suggestions?

I'll also ask the Vet, but do you have any recommendations other than the "cone"? She's a little escape artist and I would love a suitable backup. I bought her human toddler underwear when she had her first heat. I wondered if a baby "onesie" might work for this... but I think she would go after the buttons (that would be by her incision).

I'm also guessing she won't want to eat much just after the surgery. We give her wet food as a supplement now. Should I stock up on extra for the first couple of weeks?

What about bathroom trips?

Thank you for reading and please fill me in on anything I might be missing?

Ours was a year when she was spayed, and walked that night, enough so she could go out and do what she needed to. Once she recovered from the anesthesia, (next morning) she had no trouble walking, and by the following day you would never know anything had happened to her. She never picked at the incision, so we didn't even have to put 'THE COLLAR' on her. All dogs are different, but that was our experience.

Most are fine once the anesthesia wears off. She might be off her food for 24 hours, as long as she drinks water, that's fine. Use the e- collar if she wants to lick or chew her sutures, keep the incision clean (as in wipe it off with a cool, soft, damp towel if she lays in mud or loose dirt sort of thing.)

I've had several spayed, all of them were fine by the next day, as if nothing happened except one that did need the e-collar to prevent her licking.
