My puppy is getting spayed - what do I need.

Hi everyone

Nova will be 6 months in a couple of weeks and we booked her in to get spayed on June 28th.

The vet will give us a letter with instructions re food before surgery a few days before.

Any tips what I should definitely have at home for her when we pick her up? I bought an inflatable protective collar, because I didn't want to use one of the plastic cones, to protect the wound from any licking. We have a few kong toys to keep her occupied and a couple of dog puzzles too.

She is having the surgery on a Friday and we both have the weekend off to monitor her closely. If needed I can work from home for a few days the following week, but she is usually not left alone for more than a couple of hours at a time anyway and we are able to pop home for lunch to check on her if needed.

Looking forward to hearing your experiences/tips/insights.

Thank you!

Sounds like you are very well prepared. I don't think you've missed anything. She's lucky she is so very well cared for and loved.

One the day my dog was spayed she was tired and slept a lot. After that she didn't act like anything bothered her. I'm sure you're already aware, but just keep the incision dry and monitor for infection.

And kudos to you for getting her spayed at a good age.

Thank you very much just want to make sure I don't need to do any running around when she gets home so I can be there if she needs me. We have a cat as well and when she was spayed, she was pretty groggy for a couple of days and then bounced back to normal.

So today was the day. Waiting to pick my girl up in 4 1/2 hours. She was happy when the vet checked her through before the surgery. They also fixed up her small umbilical hernia. Cannot wait to pick her up!!!
