I feel like crying. She is the cutest thing and I did not want to leave her while I go to work.

I feel confident in the vet that she is going to because they are using the latest in technology and also all natural stuff, but...............

I just hope that she will be fine when I get her home.

AWWWWWWWWWW....
How old is she?? Chulita is 4 months old and I have LOTS of questions about the spaying process and what to expect when I bring her home after spaying. I want to be prepared NOW in terms of what to expect before I bring her in, what if anything...I will need to buy for her...etc... What is the "lastest technology" that you are talking about.

Well I have a hard time leaving Chulita at the GROOMER for 2-3 hours.
I had NO IDEA when you took them to the groomer you had to LEAVE THEM THERE :eek: for 2-3 hours. I was like WHAT??? WHY??? Cant' I hang out in the store for an hour? She's so tiny you should be done with her fast. LOL!!!


No one ever told me about the whole process at the groomers. I have taken her twice and I leave there feeling SO EMPTY and Guilty knowing she is there with a bunch of loud barking dogs. I can't even imagine how I'm going to feel when she gets spayed....

I know how you feel.


Just be sure you have some pain medicine for her for about two days. It really makes a difference in her comfort.

The waiting is very hard. You just have to hold on to the fact that you are doing the right thing for your baby. I'm sure all will go well. Please update us when you get some info....

I found a groomer that will do Bella while I wait so she doesn't have to be kept in a cage waiting. It takes hour to hour and a half. I can see all that is going on as it is a very open place and Bella can see me. I guess I am very fortunate because there is no way I could leave her at a groomers. I would freak out.

I agree about making sure you get pain meds. My vet didn't offer them till the fourth day when Bella still seemed uncomfortable. Soon as she got them she was fine. I wish they had offered them the day of surgery or I had known to ask for them.


She will be fine. I :new_Eyecrazy: did much worse than Bella because of all my anxiety.

(Good wishes to Tucker on his neuter today too)

I know how nervous are.
That was the hardest thing for me - getting Abbey spayed but within a couple of days she was back to her old self like nothing ever happened! Of course, you keep worrying because you have to keep them still. Luckily for me, Abbey couldn't and still can't do steps. She's a little chicken but that's okay - she knows I'll carry her anywhere she wants to go!


Let us know how she's doing. Best Wishes for a speedy recovery!

I think I am going to try the PetSmart groomers. You can watch what they are doing through the window. Right now, they have a puppy special 14.99, not bad. I plan on keeping him with a puppy cut, anyway.

As far as getting him fixed. Lord I DREAD that day. I am already looking up the soft made "lamp shade collars" (hate those plastic ones), or the "no bite collar", I saw them on Amazon.com. Also, someone mentioned on this board to put an infant onsie tee-shirt on them to keep their surgery area covered. I just want to make sure he is as comfortable as possible when it has to happen.


Good luck with your baby.

I took Chulita to Petsmart for her first groomer appt. I got that same ONE TIME 14.99 offer for everything bath, nails trimmed, ears and a little ttiming of the hair because I want it to grow out a little. But you have to LEAVE them there for 2-3 hours...unless you pay extra for express service which I had NO IDEA about. So I was so upset to leave her there but I did because she really needed a full grooming session. I took her back this past Saturday. When I called about the Express service they said something about its's only the first appt for the day for express service. WHAT THE HECK!!!!!!!!!!!! They don't explain things very well at least the one by me so once again I had to leave her there.
But they did a decent job again. I heard about a groomer closer to my house I'm going to give them a try next month. :D

I gave him his first bath with me last week. He looked so sad and pathetic in the sink all wet, I felt so sorry for him. I dreaded doing that, too...but, by the time I half way blow dried him...he was back to his hopity self, again.

From petsmart I got the sink attachment hose to bathe them with. I got a slip proof mat. I am hoping to do his nails and little trims myself. I used to do it with my lhasa. Keep their tushy hair trimmed too. Everything seems to get caught in there.

I do want to do the puppy groom at Petsmart. Maybe I can try to go when it might be empty? This one is all glass enclosed so you can see them through the glass. I think it would be a good experience for them to get handled by someone other than their mommy. There is a Malti owner in my petsmart, she clipped his nails and eye hair for me for free when she saw me in there. I hope I can get her, she loves this breed of dog...so, I know she will be gentle.

I hate leaving them with strangers or alone so young too...but, we do make up for it by spoiling them with everything else.
