Thats funny! Yea they are like super dogs! However, we brought her in on Saturday at 1pm and it took about 45 min - hour. They said they were done and we went in and her stub was wagging from a holding crate. The tech helped me get her out and I carried her to the car. Went hom and she was still dazed and wanted her to sleep... NO problem sleeping until the next day. About half way through the next day she was back to her old self...Running and jumping and like the vet says you cannot stop them!!! LOL I just checked her bandage to make sure nothing was bleeding.AshleysMom\";p=\"94837 said:We had the spaying discusion last week at Ashleys final vacination visit. Her vet owns several boxers ( THUS being on the TOP of the list to treat my girl!) He basically told me the same scenario..drop off early , pick up by dinner. He also made me laugh when he told me he did all kinds of research on pain meds to keep his female calm after the surgery, and went to great lengths to keep her still for a few days..he then proceeded to roll his eyes and said.."I don't know why I bothered, She tried to jump the fence at home the second day..it was like nothing even happened to her!" .
I had asked this question before her cropping, but he tells me Boxers tend to have very high pain thresholds...so he likes to use something for a few days to try to prevent their normal wildness and sutures popping... but he snickered and said..it usually fails..they think they are "SUPER DOGS!"
We are going to wait till 6 moths of age for her, as just going through the crop, I didn't want her under anesthsia again so soon...all my other females went into heat at 8-9 months, so I will keep my fingers crossed she holds off too.
