She is out of surgery, waking up and doing great! Whew….

January 24th, 2013 - 1:01 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and out of spay surgery lovers… WHEW…Gawd I hate waiting but today it was hardly any wait at all.  We were out the door at about 8:40 this morning.  I planted the customary lipstick kiss on the forehead for good luck.

Then she was signed in and she was first in line for her procedure.

See that picture behind her?  hehehe

Then she was whisked off down the hall.

An hour and a half later I got the call that she did great and was waking up!  Grandma are going to pick her up at 2:30 sharp!  The doctor said she was very, very close to going into heat.  If at all possible you want to spay prior to the first heat cycle to prevent the possibility of breast cancer.

I am just so happy she has this checked off her list.  Now we will get her all healed up and before you know it spring will be here with all it’s glory.

Thank you residents for holding our paws through all of this.

More loving getting her home later….Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB) sending healing drool…

    So glad all went well. Hopefully it will be a sunny afternoon and Daisy can relax and recoup near a window with the sunlite streaming in on her.

    I KNOW you are glad to get this checked off of the list. This is a huge accomplishment. Or it would be to me anyway. So glad she did great. We all knew she would. But I was sure checking your blog every chance I got. Thanks so much for updating us so quickly!

    Yep, 6 months is about the first heat. You got lucky cuz you don’t want to fix them while they’re in heat. I think it’s more risky. I’ve been explained that they have more blood vessels down there at that time and they have to do a special stitch.

    Anyway, we’re all jumping for joy at the Doyle household! Can’t wait for the next adventure!

    Glad to hear that all went well.

    I think or Mayor Daisy Lynn is a little on the skinny side. Our Mayor needs to be svelte with voluptuous curves. Slinky will have to send our new Mayor some treats to help with this endeavor.

    Dear Cat and darling little Daisy Lynn,
    So glad this is over now and Daisy Lynn can look forward to a GLORIOUS SPRING and rumping about with her cousins in the near future! Lots of healing kisses for Daisy Lynn and patty pats and to let her know she is much loved. Get well soon!

    Such a relief to hear that Daisy is doing well. I hope she’s home sleeping on a velvet pillow by now.

    Get well soon, Daisy Lynn! Your Mommy did the right thing! Getting spayed/neutered is no fun, but, it is just another way that your Mommy is showing you how much she loves you and all pets everywhere!

    When you are all healed, Nosey wants to meet you!
