i know that this isn't supposed to be true, esp for female dogs, but im wondering if anyone else feels that spaying calmed their dog?
my aussie girl (5 months) was spayed about 2 weeks ago. while she is still a crazy puppy, she seems much calmer. at first i thought maybe it was because she was recovering but it's been a while now and she seems to be having no problem with healing.
she isn't like a totally different pup, but i feel like im spending a lot less time chasing her around to keep her out of trouble. she is spending more time just laying down next to me and hanging out. she didn't even used to like being pet and now she will lay beside me and turn over to get her chest rubbed.
is she ill? she doesn't have any other symptoms. im not complaining about the change because she is a handful for sure, she just seems a little more mature.
they said that she was just about to go into heat when they spayed her, she had bloody discharge for a few days after her surgery. i dont know if that hormone change effected anything?
just wondering if anyone elses female seemed calmer after?
