Default Thanks everyone for the welcome

Hi everyone,
Ruby and I would like to thank you for the warm welcome to your group.
Ruby is a little under the weather, as the saying goes.
She was spayed on Monday and they also pulled 4 baby teeth at that time. She spent the night there and came home yesterday (Tuesday ). She went right to bed,did not eat or drink. This morning she still would not eat or drink from her bowls,so I sat on the floor and handfeed her and she took it. Then did get her to drink some water. But then she went right back to her bed. Is sleeping alot, not walking around at all. She went potty this morning, but not doing much else.
Does all this seem normal to you? Thanks for any help, just worried some,thought she would be up and moving more then she is.

Yes, that seems normal. I have Piña going in for a spay in a couple of weeks and anticipate the same actions and as long as she is eating a bit and drinking she is OK. I have asked alot of questions of my vet already. Rest is best for her and I was also told that it's best if they don't receive too much pain medication as it is better if they feel a little bit of pain so they do rest and not move around too much the first couple of days home so the incision can begin to heal. I was also told to avoid having puppy jump. Lots of rest is best for her right now. I hope she is feeling better and up and around soon.

Some pups recover quicker than others. Sometimes it takes them a few days to get back to their normal routine and eating habits.

Angel was really sore the first day or two so she really didn't want to do much. After that, it was like someone flipped a switch and she took off with a wild bolt of energy. LOL

Hi, Thank you for the information. I always worry. Just wanted to make sure this seemed normal. The vet gave me no pain med's so maybe that is why she is sleeping and not moving around much. Use to her being a ball of energy.

for about 10 days you should keep her activity low key, and leash-walk only when she goes outside to pee. You don't want her to rip the incision, and relaxation makes for the best recovery!
And painkillers can make a dog tired, but most likely it is just the recuperation process itself.

Hi, Yep, the vet said the same thing, to keep her quite and rest. No jumping, rough housing, or long walks.
Just thought she would want to eat,seeing thay had me with hold food starting Sunday night and they did not offer her anything till Tuesday morning the day after the operation. Glad to no that it is fine for her to be sleeping and resting,it makes it easier for me to keep her well that way.
Just wanted to be sure as I know that I'm used to her running all over the house.
