And I am scared :( I really shouldn't be, my first dog was spayed and she seems fine....but had a really hard time with it.

With my first dog, Belle, I wasn't home the few days following her spay. She wouldn't eat or play (once she felt better) and got really, really skinny! I was so shocked when I got home. She was also older, about 1 yr old when we had her spay.

With our puppy, Penny, we decided to get her spayed before she goes into heat...and we're having it done Monday.

So I guess my question is....What does a dog act like who is spayed under "normal" conditions? i.e. I'm not leaving this time! I'll be home almost all the time. Can I expect her to eat like normal and play like normal once she feels a little better? Or does spaying always mess a dog up?

Thanks.

The vet place just called. They said she is doing fine, but still groggy so they want to keep her for a few more hours.

What does that mean...should I be worried? My first dog was ready to get at 2pm, this one won't be ready until 5.....:confused::(

Thanks Gina. I just worry about my baby :( I'll feel better once she's home with moma

yay!! She's home!! She seems okay. Very lethargic (sp) and whiney. Belle is being good with her, not trying to play just sniffing her. Penny ate a little (scarfed it down! lol) and hasn't thrown up...so we'll see :) I'm glad to have her home!!
