If she is in that much pain you need to call the DVM....I would be doing that right away....I used a warm water bottle wrapped in a towel and let my girls lay with that and it seemed to soothe them....

Do you have an emergency vet? If she is in a lot of pain, you really need to get her some pain meds. You may be able to call them and just pick up some pain meds if they know she was just spayed.
No there isent any :( only in Falmouth (20 mins from us) but my mums on tablets and after she has taken them she can't legally drive :( I have no idea what to do! :'(

I'm not sure how it works there, but calls to emergency vets here are free. It's just if you need them to come for a visit that there's a crazy cost associated. I would call any emergency vet, even if they're not super close. That doesn't really help if there aren't any stores open though. Are there any emergency vets there that would travel?

I don't know any emergency vets , you have to go through a call centre and then send a vet out for a stupid price ! It's not food here as my vets is a tiny one and there's barly any money ect. :( we only moved to his one a year ago so we don't dealt know much about it as there's only 2 vets in our town and the other one killed my hamster :(

Hmm... Well if you can't get to a vet, I am not sure what else you can do besides make her comfortable... Get her wrapped up in a nice cozy blanket and make sure she is eating/drinking. Call the vet first thing in the morning.

That's too bad Shannon. I agree with Missy. You don't want to give her anything without proper dosing instructions, etc., so making her comfortable is really the only thing to do for right now. Do you have a heating pad (or even a hot water bottle)? Only use on low temperature, covered by a towel or light blanket, and only use if she can get up and away if she gets too hot. It might be some comfort to her and encourage her to sleep? Poor girl. Since your vet isn't near you, you would think that they would have given you some metacam or something just in case.

Oh poor Tillie, night time always seems to be the worst for little ones, human kids included. Just try to keep her comfortable, and use a heating pad like was suggested. Im sure she will be a little better in the morning. But call your vet as soon as you can in the AM. Good luck Shannon and try to get some sleep. Hugs...
