Default Spaying

Hey everyone,

We are taking Gypsy to get spayed next week and I was wondering if there is anything we should do before hand to get her ready or after to help with having the surgery?

Also is there any behavior changes I should expect?

I have also read that you should never spay or neuter when they are in an anxious state, she is always anxious, should I be worried?

We didn't do anything special beforehand. They kept her overnight so we got her back the day after surgery. She was pretty tired that first day. After that she was pretty much back to her normal self, wanting to run and play. We had to keep the leash on her in the house to make sure she wasn't running and to make sure she didn't jump up on anything. I put the cone on her when we weren't able to supervise her (even though she never bothered with the stitches I wanted to be on the safe side!).

Below is what her incision looked like the day we got her home. Having never been a dog owner I was a bit shocked at how large/red it was! (I think I even posted on here about it!). But the vet assured it me was normal and just to watch for redness and swelling around the area.

I'm a first time dog owner too. So I'm assuming by the picture that the scare is going to look pretty narley on her since she's white...lol

Her leash is on her all the time cuz of her being deaf until she is fully trained.

It's good to know that we don't have to do anything special.
Thank you

We had a keyhole spay for Lily at 18 months ish and it was brilliant, but most of my friends have gone for the normal method and this is great too. Keeping them calm after the op can be challenging.

We had a problem in that we turned up for the spay and the vet said she was lactating which is normal but they cannot perform the spay until it is all finished.

hope this helps.

We are bringing home our female puppy in July and I have been researching spaying in depth recently. I have been reading how waiting til after the first heat is a better time to spay for hormone reasons, but I have not heard of this keyhole spay...can you elaborate?

Here is a interesting article to put more confusion on spaying/neutering out there. We had our boy neutered at 12 month though Understand 18 months is better.

its keyhole surgery where only a tiny incision is made so recovery is quicker, we have a specialist round here that does it, it is expensive. I think they remove less with a keyhole spay but I am not sure.

We can't take any chances of her getting pregnant because she is deaf and I read and have been told that the likelihood of her passing on the gene to pups are very high.
