Default Spaying - how long to recover?

Hi everyone,

I'm getting my little one spayed in a few weeks and I'm already feeling really scared after my neighbour's dog (not a chi) had a bad experience and almost died due to the vet not tying things up properly afterwards.

Thankfully I don't go to the same vet!! But I'm still nervous about it.

For those who have had their girls spayed - roughly how long did it take for them to recover? Any issues to be aware of?

I think I'm really just wanting some reassurance that my baby will be ok!

Majic

My girls took about 3 days until they were completely back to normal. They pretty much just slept the first few days. Some girls bounce back the day after so it's always a bit different for each dog.

My girls had it done Lapryscopically so much quicker recovery. Willow was a tad slower with recovery, but I was able to take both home after they had it the same day. By the next morning Ivy was back to normal. Willow, 2 days to feel up to par. But still couldn't resume normal activity, running and playing etc for 1 week. Plus they didn't have the surgery until the afternoon since they had 2 emergencies come it.

All of our girls we have had (past and present- big and little) have taken different amounts of time. The majority it took maybe 2-3 days to recover and be back to normal. The bigger dogs take a little longer (our mastiff had a rough time).

The smaller dogs- Leena in paticular only took 2 days. It was hard to keep her under control she LOVES to jump!

Holly was feeling back to normal after about 2 days, but we had to keep her from getting too crazy for about a week. The important thing is to make sure she doesn't open her stitches or get them infected from licking. Good luck!

Sassy was done when she had a c-section. Sometimes the anethstetic can make them a little grumpy - so don't be alarmed if she is, she will go back to normal within a the following 24 hours.

Thanks for the replies...

I'm wondering how on earth you stop a crazy little chi from jumping around - other than a doggy straight-jacket!
