Default Atticus' Spay (warning - one is a wound photo, icky but no blood)

here is Atticus on the first evening home after her spay.
she was still pretty much out of it but comfortable.
(as comfortable as lying on a nylabone can be...)

we'd put a bucket collar on her but she went crazy! i was so concerned that she'd rip her stitches open i took it off. she was throwing herself around in a panic.
so OH was sent to the supermarket to buy some preemie onesie vests which i put on back to front and they work wonderfully well.
(interesting note - the first night after surgery, Atticus howled in her sleep.
ALL night. not horribly loud, but loud enough! i put it down to the anaethesia.)

mid morning the day after surgery and starting to perk up.
she was looking at me as if to say "where's my dinner?"


and an after dinner chew on her favourite bone.
obviously feeling much better for a meal, followed by some chicken broth and a poo!

the wound as of this morning (two days after surgery)

beautifully clean and neat with no sign of swelling.
i'm really impressed with our vet's work.
i've seen some pretty scary spay sites in my time.
well done Suzanne

yes
we've got Metacam for cats as Atticus is so tiny the dog version is too strong.
