Hi all, Ivy girl (7 months)is going in for the operation on Friday. She has to fast of course but just wanting to get some advice on how to handle her/her pain etc when she comes home:( Poor thing.

For my girls the first day home they had pain meds given twice daily and that kept them pretty well out of it. Day 2 and for the 10 days the Vet wanted them still was hard, as each day they felt better and better and hated to be confined. No stairs for a while and then very careful. You may notice a decrease in appetite for a bit. Pain meds were only for the first few days. Mine had to wear a cone for about a week, but then the cone was not used. Watch her sutures for unusual swelling or weeping but mine have never had any problems. There might be some initial bruseing at first but this is normal.

Hardest part was keeping them calm for the days the Vet recommends
