Baya gets spayed tomorrow

So Baya is getting spayed tomorrow I can't believe its already time! I'm so nervous for her, anything we should be doing? They said dont feed her after midnight but thats it. Ugh I don't no how I am ever going to handle having children this is killing me and we keep spoiling her with treats because we feel so guilty. I hope she does ok with everyone. haha anyway I can keep rambling forever but I wont, any tips or suggestions for keeping her calm for the next few days?

Re: Baya gets spayed tomorrow

Did you opt for the laser surgery? If you have a choice, pick that one!

Re: Baya gets spayed tomorrow

No we went with a low cost clinic that I did some community services hours for back in sophmore year, they are awesome and the ppl there really impressed me. BUt I think that rules out the laser but we will definetly ask if they have it! Does it help with recovery time?

Re: Baya gets spayed tomorrow

Recovery time will be the same. It takes the same amount of time for a wound to heal. I do think that Sierra was in less pain than Jax was. Sierra seemed to rebound faster.

It's good you trust the clinic! I"m sure she'll be fine.

Re: Baya gets spayed tomorrow

I would make sure they do the pre-anesthetic bloodwork, too.

I kind of like open surgeries? I don't know. No reason so don't listen to me.

Consider me clueless, can you explain what you mean so we will know what all to ask for tomorrow?

Huh, this is a lot but interesting:

Basically, they would check to make sure that her blood values are in the normal ranges, that she's not anemic or have anything out of whack that would either make her surgery more difficult or her recovery harder.

Re: Baya gets spayed tomorrow

I opted for the bloodwork beforehand also.It also gives a good normal point on record for if something should come up later.We did it with Lexi and it turned out to be a good choice because a couple months later we were back in for stomache distress so they had normals to look at against the sick values.
Good Luck she'll be fine.
