    Hi, We just got home about an hour ago with my male dog who has just been neutered. He’s lying on his bed, but I noticed a little bleeding on the floor after he moved, and he is also shaking. Barely ate and doesn’t want to drink water. The incision looks weird to me as if it had not been closed...

    What are the mammary cancer risks for Chihuahuas? After reading up on it I got a bit scared. I’ve adopted older Chihuahuas who have not gotten spayed yet and I’m afraid they will get it and it will be fatal. (Here is one by the way.)

    I am worried about my pup and her Incision after spay.. its been a couple days and there is a long hard bump underneath..she is uncomfortable when I try to feel it and has been acting anxious. Thanks for any help you could offer. She's going into the vet tomorrow either way to get it checked out.

    We recently rescued a 9 month old black German shepherd. She was just spayed a week and a half ago and I am worried about her incision site. I'll attach a photo below. We've been keeping it dry/ cleaning it with warm water and a cotton cloth and it doesn't seem to be hurting her. Shes still in...

    My golden was spayed 8 days ago, (buried sutures) and the vet told us we could take off the e-collar after 7 days. On day 6 it looked like it was healing nicely, so I had no problem taking it off on day 7. However, she started licking excessively right away, so we put the cone back on. Now, it...

    Good evening, My 18 month Maltese recently got spayed about 9 days ago (10/28/2019). Her incision site has been healing well and was scabbing. It had no signs of infection such as redness, pus none of that. However, last night the E-collar came off and she was able to access her incision site...

    My 6 month old puppy was spayed on Monday, and aside from trying to control her crazy energy spurts, all has been going well so far. However, I have a concern about the incision and whether or not it appears to be healing properly. It looks a little irritated to me, which I'm sure is normal...

    Hi Everyone, New to the forum and new to being a dog guardian (I had a dog as a child/teen but never as an adult). We just rescued the sweetest German shepherd mix (40 pounds, they think lab mixed in-anywhere between 2 and 4 years old they said) from the local humane society. She is a delight...

    Hi! Hoping you could help me. I have a four-year-old Hungarian Vizsla called Mouse. She was spayed 3 days ago. The operation went well. She is drinking water and eating but not in her normal quantities. She HATES the bandage. It freaks her out so she pretty much spends all day lying down...

    Hello, I recently got my chihuahua "Lucy" spayed on 2/24/2018. I've never had a dog that wasn't already spayed/neutered when I adopted it, so this is my first time going thorugh the recovery/healing process with a pet. So this is I guess the beginning of her third day out of surgery. I took...

    Hello, My 7 month old puppy got spayed yesterday. She had a bit of complications and required them to go back in an add another stitch. She's eating and drinking normal, and seems to be in higher spirits but she refuses to lay down. She's taking pain medication but only every 12 hours. She...

    Hello, My dog Lola got spayed about a month ago. Everything was healing fine, it looks almost all healed up. She also is super active and eating/drinking. Just yesterday I noticed she has a small red lump on the bottom of the incision. Today I noticed it swelled up a little bit. It doesn't seem...

    This is my first time having a dog who was spayed and the rescue we got her from gave us very little info on how to care for this. She had the surgery 6 days ago and it has been hard to keep her calm. Thank you for all your help. She is eating fine, tons of energy. I just don't want to mess it up.

    When I first adopted Trucker I was told by our vet that I was lucky he had not been Neutered as a puppy but rather only been Neutered when he was pulled by the local Rescue that I adopted him from. She said that a dog needs to reach puberty before being altered in order to avoid health...

    Hey guys! My five year old mutt came into our home about two months ago. In the time before we were given the okay to spay her, she humped one of my friends one time. We recently had her spayed (two weeks ago today), but about a week after she started humping people. She has humped me (who she...

    Hi, So I have a 10-11 lb Terrier. After she's spayed, she will be on crate rest for 7-10 days with restrictions on running, stairs, jumping, etc. What is the safest way to actually pick her up, so as not to cause pain or damage to her spay incision site? Right now I tend to pick her up a...

    We rescued a stray approximately 1 year old female dog. After an easy introduction, she was great with my 7 year old female (spayed) and 8 year old male (neutered). Before we could spay the new stray, she went into heat and attacked my female. No serious injuries, just a few scrapes. Since...
