Spays 

Care of your (Female) Dog After Spaying

Your pet has been spayed through an incision in her abdomen. This procedure involves internal surgery and therefore needs care for some time after the event.

When you collect her from Rock View Veterinary Surgery, she may be a little drowsy. This is quite normal following an anaesthetic and surgery. The drowsiness should reduce over the next 12-24 hours. There may be some bruising, so she should not be expected to be completely normal for a few days. Keep her in a quiet, warm place and give only small amount to eat and drink, she will be back to normal in a couple of days.

Try to deter her from jumping and running around etc. and keep her as quiet as possible with only lead exercise until the sutures are removed.

Generally there are very few complications after the operation; however, there are some signs to watch for that may indicate a problem.

         1. Dull and listless (especially after the first 24 hours).

         2. Excessive redness or irritated around the wound.

         3. Swelling or lumpiness around the wound.

If you notice any of these signs please do not hesitate to call the surgery.
