Heidi is doing well so far after her spaying yesterday. She spent the night in the crate comfy, cozy.
This morning I was hoping she would be ready to eat (she didn't want anything yesterday, expected). I offered her kibble, No. I offered her a bit of canned, No. Both Eagle Pack Holistic, btw. OK, so she is still not ready to eat anything...but I didn't want to stuff her pain pill down her throat since she is still not back to her normal self. So, I offered a tiny bit of sliced cheese...she did eat that. So, I gave her pill in the cheese; and she wanted the rest of it, so I gave that to her. I felt like she needed more, so I offerred her a bit of frozen chicken thigh. She took a bit of that as well (probably about 1/4 cup). So, she has something in her stomach.
I think around lunchtime, I'll bake some of that chicken thigh and see if she will eat that. Thoughts?
Her incision looks ok...its a bit pink, but I'm sure that's to be expected on Day 2. She started licking it a bit, so I put the Eliz-collar on. She didn't like that one bit, but soon settled down and tolerated it. I took it off after a bit.
Yesterday, I took her out for "business" every two hours until it was time for me to go to bed. Then at 5am, took her back out. She was happy to stretch her legs and have a little luvin. She and Buddy laid together and snuggled for a bit. It was so sweet.
She's now resting back in her crate.
