Good Morning,
I just wanted to get some advice regarding how long after her operation will Mia be back to normal.
She is getting spayed today and I just wanted to know how long I can expect her to be out of it. The vet is keeping her overnight and we can pick her up tomorrow.
She was so happy to go for a ride in the car this morning with her dad but when he dropped her off she looked like she had lost her best friend...poor girl.
Anyway, any advice or information you give will be appreciated.
Thanks....

Mia will be fine! A few days rest and you will never know the difference...

Thanks so much for the information and best wishes. I just called the vet and she is out of surgery and is doing great. I'm sure it's worse on me than it is on her. It's really amazing how attached we get to these little fur balls...lol I don't have kids so for now she is my baby.
Just curious also, what is the typical charge for spaying a maltese, I live in Toronto so i was just wondering how much it varies by clinic.
Thanks again....

i hope Mia has a speedy and easy recovery.

l.e. just had her spay done friday and it was $80 for the spay, $20 for her hernia, $20 for four teeth to be pulled, and $20 for her pain medication that we took home. so $140 for everything.

as for her recovery, i think that she had much harder time than most other pups. i think with all that she had done, she was in a lot of pain. but by the 4th day she pirked up a bit and started acting like herself. a friend of mine had her pup spayed a little while ago and said that she felt fine the day after with the help of the pain medication of course. Mia will probably be just really groggy and sleepy for the first day or so.

hugs to mia!!

Hello,
Mia is doing fine, it's now 6 days after her surgery and she seems to be healing well. She would not eat her normal food for 2 days but shes eating now.
The only problem that we are having is that her personality has seemed to change. Before she would be around us ALL THE TIME....now she seems to prefer to lie with her teddy bear and sleep or just relax. Has anyone else experienced a personality change after there spay surgery? Perhaps she is just taking it easy becuase her cut is still bothering her???

Well, one good thing is that she needs to take it easy until the stitches come out. Maybe she is bothered from the feeling that the stitches are there. When they come out she might feel better. What type of stitches does she have.... disolvable, outer, etc.?

So glad to read she is doing okay. Let her rest, I'm sure she needs it. Lacey was like that the first day and after that she was running all around the house. My vet called the day after surgery to see how she was doing and I told her...she told me Lacey shouldn't be running like crazy, I told her maybe she should tell that to Lacey. My vet laughed and told me to keep an eye on her and if anything should develop to call her.
