Default Nervous about Spay

Violet gets spayed this Wednesday the 23rd. I have to drop her off at 8:30 in the morning, call at 5pm to see how everything went and then can't pick her up until 9:15 Thursday morning. I'm so nervous. I know everything will be just fine, but still, that's a long time for her to be all alone without the other dogs and me. She's going to be so scared. When I called to make the appt at the vet. They said that she could go into heat any day because she's over 6 months. She just turned 6 months and I was told to wait until she was at least 6 months. I guess they can tell if she's about to go into heat and if so, they will not continue with the spaying. I hope that isn't the case though.

How did all your girls do after they were spayed? And is it bad I waited until she was 6 months? Any advice for a nervous Mom?

Thanks!

no advice, but i'm right there with you! Madison's spay is a month away. i don't think there's anything wrong with waiting until 6 months - that's pretty normal. we're only doing madison at a little over 5 and 1/2 months because our vet is going on vacation!

Hannah was a year old!! She's had her stitches out today and it went great. I only had to keep her in her pen for the first day then she was good to go..
Is keeping them overnight normal in the states?
With Hannah it was in by 9.30, phone at 14.00 and pick her up after 17.00.

Yeah, it's pretty normal for all spays to spend the night. I wish that wasn't the case, but sadly it is.

Violet will be fine.
I've just been through this with a 6 month old Chi and a 5 year mix.

It is horrible on us as owners, and I honestly think it's harder for us than the dogs.

She'll be groggy not herself for a few days, but after that you'll think nothing ever happened !

To be honest, it might be easier having them stay overnight with the vet.
They are so out of it. Lola did nothing but sleep the moment we got her home through the first night. Stella was really drugged up. You could tell she had no idea where she was.

It might have been easier on us if they'd kept them both overnight. I doubt either would have known the difference.

I can't say don't worry, because I'd be a hypocrit. It will pass shortly, however, and you'll all be back to normal.

Lola is getting spayed on Thursday and I'm nervous too. Luckily at my vet they get to go home at around 5 or 6pm that evening.

Will keep you in my thoughts

It is a worrying time but you are doing the very best thing for your girl and being a loving and responsible owner...she is very lucky to be with you.

I've only had one Chihuahua spayed, my late Honey who was three years old. We bought her at that age unspayed from breeder. Hun was fine and soon her usual self.

I've had rescue guinea pigs spayed and you know the size of them...all fine!

Personally I would insist on having my dog with me after the operation, rather than in the surgery overnight. But, realistically many bitches will settle post op anywhere, if it's quiet. I think it depends on the Chihuahua
Obviously, go with what you are happy with.
