Dog spayed

Our dog was spayed two days ago, we picked her up yesterday. She is a German Shepherd, super energetic, and play driven. We always tell her that she is "so extra." Lol We are to keep her from running and jumping for two weeks, she was ready to go full force by yesterday evening. It is going to be a long two weeks.

I feel your pain. Carys did not appreciate an Elizabethan collar when she had her operation.

We had a hard time with our dog as well! She did not like the cone of shame.

We had our dog spayed when she was an active 6 month old. We were terrified. And, she managed to get her cone off in her small crate the first night! She didn't bother her stiches, so we ended up keeping the cone off. Keeping her from jumping was a little more difficult.

I'm sure your baby will do fine, but it is a nervous time.

Ha ha, my first greyhound/lab mix had surgery and they used staples (she didn’t fixed) and my vet was a moron. As a special gift to me she took out her staples and left them all over the house for me to find. The vet told me she wouldn’t need a collar. He was a moron.

To keep her busy, have you tried an elk antler for her to chew on?

Oh my goodness Greyhound girl, that would scare me to death! She has a couple of antlers but she can't grip them around the cone. So, we are giving her breaks from the cone and taking turns watching her. I ordered from Amazon an inflatable ring that is covered with material that is supposed to be a good alternative to the cone. It looks like a travel neck pillow, only bigger lol. She just won't stop moving, running from one side of the house to the other, I don't think it is possible to stop her from running. My DH asked if we couldn't just sedate her for two weeks! Lol

My roommate’s dog was neutered earlier this summer. After spending time with him (an 80lb black lab) the vet did prescribe sedatives to keep him quiet so he could heal.
Even with the medicine, keeping him quiet was a challenge! Good luck!
