Oh goody, someone to ask questions. Well, not that no ones else can, but Harleigh is getting spayed in 1 1/2 weeks. We drop her off at 8:30 in the morning and they keep her all day til 4:30. Is this normal? I thought it was strange but Im ok with it. So how long did it take Britney to start acting normal? Or is she not quite normal yet? The reason why I ask, is she gets it's done on a Wednesday and I am taking the following 2 days off of work to keep an eye on her. Is this not necessary? Also will she be up to puppy class that following Sunday?

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.

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.

However, I am not sure how you would do it without using the lamp shade so they don't chew. For her that was bigger ordeal then having surgery in my opinion. She just couldn't get used to that thing on her neck... It took her 3 hours to lay down ....awww  She still has it on but doing better now.

Well good!  Glad she's doing well. :D

They kept Henry most of the day too.  Just to make sure, they said.  I guess they do things differently in Thailand?

Diesel slept for over 1 full day after his neuter. We used the E-collar on him, and I think that's what kept him calm! He didn't want to to running around like a mad man, because he knew he'd bump into everything. So for 1 full week we kept that on him. He did great, he was a bit mad at me about having to wear the e-collar, but he pulled through just fine. There were a few times when he would try to hop around, but I had to stop him. I think he understood what was going on at least.

Glad to hear that everything went well Derrick...I am still amazed at those pics of your vet's, still looks like a regular hospital to me  :) That second pic of Britney, before she goes out, it's like she's saying "dad, what are they going to do to me?" Hoping for a quick healing for that sweetheart
