I was just looking for some advice about how long its taking my dog to recover from her spay. From what i've read, it seems most dogs are completely back to normal within a couple days. My 6 pound shih tzu mix Lola was spayed on Tuesday morning, and it's now Friday night. The incision is healing quite nicely and is not at all swollen or red. However, she's almost constantly trying to bite/lick at it so I know it's still bothering her. She also still seems very reluctant to walk. I know that she CAN walk, because when somebody comes in the door she runs over to greet them and seems fine then. The rest of the time however, she'll just sit there like a statue. She's not really interested in anything and is still spending the vast majority of her day curled up. She hasn't cried or whimpered, she just still seems very uncomfortable and sad. Since it's now been 4 days since her surgery, is this a very abnormally long recovery time? Should I be concerned about this when the incision itself looks well?
Thanks for any help,
