Re: Post-Op Care
I'm very big on pain management. Spays are actually major abdominal surgery and are painful (I've had abdominal surgery so know). One of the vet schools did a survey where they videoed dogs post surgery. When people were around they put on a "brave face" being at the front of the cage (not wanting to seem weak to teh rest of the pack), but when alone they would whimper, be unable to settle, stand hunched up etc.
Personally I would go back to my vet and ask for a couple of days of pain medications.
