Hi, My 2 years old black lab Daisy was spayed on Tuesday. She returned from the vet and appeared ok. She ate a small meal later that day and, although quiet, did not give us any particular cause for concern, although she was finding it hard to control her pee. The next day she also seemed quiet, but we put this down to the operation, but in the evening she was sick and shortly afterwards when she went out for a widdle she suffered muscle spasms in her shoulders and had to be carried in. I took her temperature which was normal and she was drinking. The next morning I took her straight to the vet - her wound was fine and her vitals seems ok too. The vet gave her an anti-inflammatory, antibiotic and pain killer and said to phone him at 6pm when she should be 'better'. By 5pm she did look a bit perkier and was able to eat a few tiny pieces of chicken, but the spasms continued.
At 8pm the spasms seemed to be in her eyes and her body generally so we called emergency and took her to the vet again. He gave her cortisone and said to take her back tomorrow morning as he proposed to put her on a drip (no one was there overnight). I suggested to him that it might be some sort of neurological disorder and he said maybe, but everything is very vague.
Daisy is so petrified of the vet that she actually managed to jump into the car to come home and I am really worried that leaving her at the vet again may not actually be the best thing, although obviously I am desperate to help her.
Please can anyone with a similar experience let me have their thoughts. I have searched the internet but cannot find much on the subject of post operative neurological complications. Daisy was such a crazy, high speed version of a lab..... as my daughter said early, we just want crazy Daisy back.
Thanks for any feedback....

My primary concern would be the spasms, you can deal with the emotional trauma later but neurological symptoms would be priority.
