A week ago this Monday Felicity had Lottie spayed. Lottie is from Primrose's litter born last year with Reggie the Dad. Felicity sent me an email to tell me how Lottie is doing after being spayed.
As I promised, just a quick message on how Lots operation went on Monday.
All went very well and she was able to come home the same day. She was still a little bit woozy on
getting her home but by the evening that had worn off.
I slept on the sofa – and then the floor Monday night to keep an eye on her, but she didn't want to then
stay in her crate so ended up curled up on the floor with me!
She had the last of her painkillers this morning and we are back at the vets tomorrow for her check-up.
She managed keep the ‘elizabethan collar’ on till Wednesday morning (being seriously not happy about wearing it!)
and then getting it caught on the back door yesterday when it ‘popped off’, so that put paid to that!
I just have to watch she doesn’t lick /nibble at her wound at all now.
It is a job to stop her from doing one her favourite things at the moment which is bouncing and she is slightly unsure
negotiating the stairs.
I hope Ysobel and Belle are getting over their ops too, having read your blog yesterday, poor Belle, she must really be scared of the vets. Lots is just the opposite and can’t wait to get in there!!
Love and best wishes to you all,
Thanks Felicity for letting me know how Lottie is getting on after being spayed. Last week I also took Belle and her Mum Ysobel to the vets to be spayed on Wednesday. Ysobel is Lottie's Granny and Belle is her half Auntie and also half sister having the same Dad.
Although Belle was not overly happy being at the vets, she has come home and is recovering well. Bitches get over this operation so quickly compared to humans, walking on all fours and not really comprehending that you have had anything done is obviously a major plus.
Ysobel is also dong well and it certainly has not effected her mothering, as the photos show. We keep finding her in with Smudge's pups and we have actually caught a couple of the pups suckling her. Smudge is unconcerned, as living in a pack it is common for bitches to share the nursing. Cavaliers are exceptional mothers.
And a few more photos of Smudge's pups with Smudge from last night and this morning. The pups are now 31 days old. If interested in this litter a cross between the Cavalier and Brittany Spaniel best to contact us by email first at firstname.lastname@example.org
