We are going on Thursday to talk to Chloe's vet about her spay. I'm also very interested in getting her microchipped at the same time. I wanted to know what do I need to ask while I'm there? Is there anything I need to know about pain medicine? I've noticed that people have strong feelings about it on both sides, but I wasn't sure why. I've also heard not to allow them to use a heating pad. Should I take away her stairs to get on the couch and bed? I just want to make sure that I've covered everything. So, any advice or experience you can share would be greatly appreciated.
