Hello everyone, Haven't been here for awhile with the holidays and Jenny helping me (?) and she was spayed last Tuesday. She is a full time 24/7 since bringing her home. She spent one night at vets afterwards and came home with pain med for two days (they gave her pain med in a.m. day we brought her home) with her cone. Also sedatives to take every 12 hours because she is so high strung. The day after she developed diahhrea (spelling?) . Called vet and it could have been from stress over whole procedure, or her pain meds. Not sure. Switched her to boiled chicken and white rice diet for a few days, and it seems to be straightening out her system, not completely 100% yet but getting there. The poor thing just hates the collar, can't blame her. She gets her stitches out next Monday,6 more loooooong days. Weather is pretty crappy, still take her out on lease to do her business and then quick walk around the yard. We walk around the house inside, kitchen to dining room, to living room, to hallway, to family room, and back to kitchen and repeat a few times. I can't leave her loose, first thing she tries is jumping up to counter or chairs, not good for stitches John and I have been switching off sleeping in family room at night to keep eye on her. I will be so happy when she is done with the cone. I feel so sorry for her but necessary. I've included some new pix in separate posting, too much for this one posting. Jenny was six months old Dec. 16th. She is doing great, John and I will need a rest when this is over. I went thru this with my beloved Coco fourteen years ago, but you forget and I was fourteen years younger and before two back surgeries.
