All seems well

It's been twenty-four hours since we took Tasha to the vet's for her ovariectomie. I guess that's the gender-specific medical term for the more general stérilisation, at least that's what they wrote in her medical record. When she got home, we could tell she was happy. And hungry. We gave her a little food, but not too much, per the vet's instructions.

Raindrops on an iris leaf.

She's licking her stitches a little, but not trying to pull them out. I'll bet she's a little sore and that those stitches probably itch. After a couple of hours she got groggy and slept on and off, then bedtime, and she essentially slept through the night. This morning she's back on her normal diet, with a supplement of an anti-inflammatory drug to relieve post-op pain for a few days. She'll go back to the vet to have her stitches removed in about ten days. Our challenge will be to limit her activity for a while so her little scar can heal.

  1. That all sounds good, as if she's not feeling ill or in any pain.
    Our vet's advice with both Lulu and Daisy was to keep them 'quiet', which was not at all easy!

  2. Love those raindrops and spiral. Great catch. Hope Tasha is on the mend.

  3. Glad all went well. We survived this with Harvey, but it was so awful seeing the tiny guy groggy and scared/perplexed wearing a cone, struggling to stand and just being generally disoriented. We definitely have overprotective parent syndrome. Wishing quick healing for Tasha!

  5. Much relief at the news that all is okay and that she's not evidently experiencing pain.
