    Default My little Coco has surgery tomorrow- I'm so scared!

    Well, I've been dreading this moment for months. Coco's spay is tomorrow morning. I'm really nervous for her. She's also having her umbilical hernia repaired.

    I took her to the vet today for a check up before her spay. She had a blood test and screamed so loud. Poor girl, I felt so sorry for her, but as soon as it was over she returned to the examining room with her tag wagging, happy as ever. So cute! I brought in the papers about thrombocytopenia and macrothrombocytosis in cavaliers, but the vet already knew about it.

    They aren't sure if she will have to spend the night yet. I'm sending her in with her favorite toy, her snowman, and perhaps a tee that I've worn (to comfort her). I bought a cute little onesie and a not-so-fun E-collar for later. Is there anything else that you guys think I should bring or that she will need?

    I'm sure everything will go well.
    Please wish Coco the best for tomorrow and keep her in your thoughts.
    Thank you so much.

    It sounds like you have everything covered! She will do great, I am sure of it. You will just be amazed how fast they heal. After the first two days, it is hard to get them to sit still!!

    You could ask them to put the stitches on the inside and use the soluble kind. It makes it harder for them to pull. And for the days after have an x pen. If she comes home the eve after she really will just want to crawl into bed, so have her crate all clean with nice soft bedding and make it dark. Depending on how groggy she is, you may be advised against feeding her until the next day- that is what I was told with Amber.

    I'm sure that Coco's spay and hernia op will go just great! Hopefully she can come home that same day so that she can be in her familiar, comforting environment. Gracie and I will be thinking about you both tomorrow!

    That's a great idea Lisa- I'll ask them about putting the stitches inside. Thanks for all the advice and good thoughts.

    I'll be thinking of Coco! I'm sure her surgery will go just fine, but I know how you feel, I get worried too about anything like that. She is a beautiful dog!!
