She is recovering well after her spay on Friday. Went for a check up this morning and wound is ok, a couple of red patches by the wound where she stands on 3 legs and scratches at it with the fourth! I've put Aloe Vera on the 'scratch patches!' and put a loose t shirt on her to try and stop her doing it :/ any other tips?

This is her tummy today:

Caught her trying to get the hanging birds on my dresser! Monkey! She must be feeling better!

By the way, she's not wearing her collar when she's sat with me, as I can keep an eye on any licking!

I've got to get Rolo done soon, was thinking of doing it at the end of Jan as my grandson is going away that week and so I won't be minding him. Thought that would be best week as will be quiet for Rolo and no possibility of him being pulled about. He will be very nearly 10 months, is that ok? He has both his bits! I'm dreading it, I don't even want to leave him at the vets 😥

Hi, glad Honey is doing well after her spay, I haven't really got any tips to stop her scratching except I put a baby vest on Bella after hers, the kind with poppers underneath, there was no way she could get at the wound with that on.

Also, Rach, how long did they keep her there for? I don't know if it will be the same for Rolo as he's a boy and I'm guessing not such a complicated procedure, just wondering?

Toby is a boy so I can answer. Spays are very different than neuters- and much more complicated. Toby went in at 8 am and was home by 2 acting like nothing ever happened.

Rach, I'm happy Honey is feeling better.

Miss Honey, glad you are feeling better! Just think you will never go through that again....and don't worry your belly fur will grow back.

I got Lady right after she had been spayed, unfortunately on long coats the bald spot is pretty noticeable. As soon as it gets some peach fuzz growing back it look much less noticeable.

Yeah i think thats your best bet, having it done at the beginning of a quiet week. 10 months is a great age :) Tell me about it, i was dreading Honeys! But he will be fine, you will be worse than he is!

It's great that Honey is doing better. Glad the 'red spots' are going down too.
Thanks Susan :)

An actual baby vest? Oo i hadnt thought of doing that, thanks!

Thankyou, she is. We went on a 5 min walk yesterday, then have been for a couple of ten min ones today. She is bored in the house, she thinks she is back to normal so cant understand why we arent walking lots and playing fetch! Ive been using her 'mind games' toys which have tired her out tonight :)

Thankyou :) Oh i know, her baldness is not appealing! :) Hehe x

I've been trying to book Mylo in for beginning of Jan but it must be closed because I keep getting no answer. I'm really not looking forward to it! Luckily it is a lot more of a simple procedure than a spay but I still worry. I'm dreading when it comes time to get Willow done :(
