    No, they have all been fine, during and after. And the recovery for them seems very quick. Is your girl going to be spayed soon?

    On the whole they recover very quickly from the op. We've had many many rescue girls speyed ( must be hundreds by now actually) Most where up & about the same day. Only a couple have needed the "buckets" on their heads.

    The younger they are the quicker they recover . In a couple of weeks you'll have forgotten she had anything done

    My girls were much much happier once speyed , before hand it was a constant cycle of seasons , phantom pregnancy & depression

    We've had a couple of unpleasent experiences due to a very bad vet ! But nothing really disasterous

    I had a girl c/s spay on November 20th 2006--- that was a major surgery with motherhood at the end. She only needed pain relief for a day
    I had a girl spay 2/9/07-- she just got her stitches out today--- NEITHER needed the e-collar-- both came through the surgeries wonderfully. I gave her pain relief for 3 days.

    Alot of them don't go near the stitches at all. We have also used a baby onesie to cover the stitches instead of the head collar.

    Ruby here,

    I had my surgery several weeks ago and the support from everyone on this site was phenomenal. Just like you, I was really nervous about everything but you needn't worry. It will all go fine. My stitches were internal, I didn't need to wear a collar, and I was bouncing all around the room and playing with Sydney the very day I came home. It was like I didn't even have surgery. Of course this drove Mom crazy trying to keep me still and quiet, but I didn't need to. Of course, they gave me pain medicine, but I felt fine and I'm sure you will do fine too. Have faith in your vet and you'll come out wonderfully.

    I would not worry about the collar unless she is chewing at her stitches. I have only needed to use it on our males, never our females.
