I've read thru some of the old forums, what are some good items to have on hand? Foodwise-she loves her ZP so I'll have that incase she may want a bite or two, I have nutrical. I read someone fed babyfood, boiled chicken, white rice? What do people buy onsies for? Her stitches will be internal according to the doc.
I plan to put our mattress on the floor so she has easy access on and off and knowing me, and how much room she takes up lol, I'll probably be sleeping on the floor next to the mattress.
The onesie is to prevent her from liking and opening her stitches, or getting
them infected. I normally just use the cone. I have the inflatable ones. As for
food, you won't be able to feed her starting on the night before surgery, and
after she will most likely be too drowsy to eat much. Sleeping on the floor
next to her is fine, I do it with every dog that gets neutered or spayed here,
but that is only to help myself feel better, because they sure do look pitiful
coming out of surgery. But not for long, Miya will be back to normal faster
than you might expect, so you will have to keep her calm, keep her from
jumping or running for a while. The external wound can heal within weeks,
but the internal wound takes longer, up to two months more or less. Just keep
that in mind and take it easy, no strenuous activities for her.
