So Maggie was dropped off at the vet this morning to be spayed. I can pick her up tomorrow at 10. I hope all goes well and, although it has been discussed before, I would love any suggestions on what to do when she gets home.
I used to volunteer at a vet and have seen the surgery done many times before, all without incident, but it is different when it is your dog. I loved the vet I used to volunteer for and if I was in the same city I would have taken her there in an instant - they didn't keep the animals overnight. They would do the surgery in the morning and the owners could pick them up in the evening - they felt it was better for them to be at home. However, Maggie seems to be an itcher and a chewer, so perhaps it is better for her to have a night there to see how she reacts to having stitches.
Wish her luck,
Missjoy and Maggie
