Eek, my little Lucy's being spayed on April 11th - it's a Monday
What age should she be spayed at?
-----Soon; most dogs go into heat between 6-8 months.
Will she need pre-op blood work? If so, when?
-----Yes, we'll do it whenever you'd like - the Friday before or the day of.
How long will she be with you?
-----You'll drop her off between 8 and 8:30 and she should be done by 4.
What type of anethesia?
-----"Isoflourine" (sorry guys, dont know how to spell it)
Will you take out any remaining baby teeth?
-----Yes, if needed.
Is there anything we need to do at home?
-----Just make sure she's relaxed and comfortable. Have food available to her; soft if she's not eating the kibble. She most likely won't be licking the wound, but if she does, an Elizabethean cone will be given to you.
So... should we go with her? I so dearly want to make sure my baby goes through surgery ok. She's 3 1/4 pounds, and while I know thats not extremely small, she seems so delicate when I'm holding her
Oh, another question - do they act any differently after the spay? Is it permanent?
Feedback is GREATLY appreciated!!
EDIT: The vet called to ask us if we wanted to reschedule for March 21, to pretty much eliminate the chance of her going into heat before. We said yes - do you think it's too soon?
