Val is correct even though the testicles have been removed, there is still sperm present in the tubes. It can survive up to 30 days and still impregnate a female in heat.

Well that was the part that wasn't so off to me, its knocking up stella or a dog who was recently spayed as well... don't they remove uterus which is key to get pregnant?

Has anyone ever heard of keeping away from recent nueterd male? My mother inlaw comes up with whacky things, and says stella can still get pregnant from a recent nueterd male for a week or two... this makes no sense to me. She is the one who also told me boxers CANNOT swim, and harnesses are NOT good for them. I just nodd and smile when i hear this nonsense
As I'm laying on the living floor for the night with Wyatt he is whining so much:-( he got neutered today and they had to do a double incision bc he had one testicle that never dropped. I feel so bad for the little guy. I opted for the tune come thingy. He hates it. If he's sleeping I take it off, but he's tried licking twice so it had to go back on. I tried offering Wyatt ice instead of water but he refused it. What pain meds did they give you? Did they suggest feeding her before giving them to her? That's my only concern is he will throw up after getting the meds bc he hasn't eaten since wed evening:-( I feel your pain right now... This is the worst ever!!!Attachment 21964Attachment 21965Attachment 21966

They gave us no pain meds, she doesn't seem to need them. Sorry for wyatt it is kinda a misserable feeling isn't it. I'm at the stage now where stella is getting very bored and building up energy and i literally nees to hold her down. I take the cone off so she can chew on antlers and toys, it doesn't work so well with it on. But i have to watch her like a hawk because every once in a while shell go in for the lick!

When Logan was done he was also very whiny that first night. He didn't want to eat or drink, but bright and early the next day he was better. They sent me home with a 10 day supply (I think) of Rimadyl for pain.

I'm really surprised that the vet didn't send Stella home with pain meds. I thought most vets would do that even just as a precaution if it's needed. I'm also surprised she said no walks. With Logan we were allowed to walk him, but then again I realize a spay is more invasive. To those who are experienced with spays, would a walk (short and at a slow pace) really do harm?

Omg People STFU!!!!! This post was about a poor dog getting fixed... HER owners decision! Whether they were aware of the risks or not prior to it, it was getting done. I knew the risks and had Wyatt fixed yesterday. Although he did have the one undescended testicle I got both removed! But I've also done research and found that he will leave the female dog in our house alone once being fixed. We've gotten every pet we've have male or female fixed and never had issues. Everyone has their opinions and thoughts and feelings. So while I feel one particular person means well, it's makes the rest of us uneasy to read some of the negativity related to that link. Thank you for your research, but most of us don't have holistic vets in the area or close to us that agree this. Not sure what my vet would say if I gave her/him that info. Hell, I know people who died from lung cancer but never smoked a cigarette in their life. Or people who do smoke and know the risks but are healthy... It's a choice, we are all entitled to our choice. I don't want anyone trying to influence or tell me what to do with MY dog!

Again I'm sorry, I had to get this off my chest! I'm starting to hate the positive posts that turn negative and lone behold that post is not even about what was originally posted!

Hope your baby girl is doing good!

I would appreciate to stay on topic from here on out.

Stella is doing great she is sad she has to sleep in kennel at night, with her cone on there is not much room to be comfortable on the bed. Both me and stella are terrible sleepers and toss and turn every so often to get comfortable, which I'm afraid of so i don't accidently touch her belly/stitches. I'd leave cone off but I'm afriad she might wake up and start licking. Such a miserable time for her right now and it bums me out, She can't do her favorite things for 2 weeks

I asked the vet about pain meds and if i would recieve some upon pick-up. They told me they usually don't offer unless its truely needed. Which then i could call and pick some up for her. Stella didn't seem to need any anyways. Like i said she took it like a champ and just slept it off. She was whining quite a bit last night but i believe that to be from teething, she was chewing that moose horn like no tomorrow, pawing at her face constantly and squishing her face between me and the bed, rubbing into blankets
Almost wish i had painmeds just for her teething

Wyatt got meds, he had two incisions. I give them on e a day for the next four days. He had a hard time walking last night. He was still on is anesthesia high I think. Today he is doing much better!
