One of my dogs was spayed 2 years ago when she was 6 months. She had no problem at all with the spaying, had an appetite the day after and was full of energy.

Just make sure that your dog doesn't do too much. I had my 6 month old puppy spayed last Tuesday and she was the same way, normal appetite, very active. We ran into some complications with her though....

Because she was so active she pulled her stitches apart which meant an emergency vet trip for her and a near nervous breakdown for me.

I wouldn't worry, most dogs have no problems with the stitches at all, and your girl should be fine. Just keep an eye on her and maybe try keeping her confined to a small area (or a crate would be even better) so she can't do too much, and use an e-collar so she can't get to the stitches.

Good luck, and I'm sure everything will be fine!

Don't worry, sometimes the anesthesia lasts a bit longer with some dogs. My lab mix was groggy for 2 days afterwards, but my newest puppy was totally awake and aware the night she was spayed. My vet doesn't like to send dogs home until they've had a chance to sleep off the anesthesia. He said they have to be able to stand up and move around pretty well before they can go home. That's probably the case with your dog.
