Spay

Monday is the day. I wasn't going to blog about it because I didn't want the whole world to know what a dork I am.

I have scheduled, rescheduled, rescheduled again, and finally the date is set. I am mostly comfortable, but still nervous for her. I mean, I know in my brain she will be fine. Spays are routine, the vet knows what she is doing. I trust her. But it's Pixel. My dog. I am really good at comforting other people, and assuring them that the dog will be fine. Not so good when it comes to myself.


I am sure she'll be okay. But it wouldn't hurt for all of you to tell me so.

It will be OK. But I understand totally, my curly girl Rinnie hasnt been spayed yet either.

I know exactly how you feel. I felt the same way with Miley. I canceled the first appt. and then made another one. Miley did great. I couldnt even tell they did anything. The next day she wanted to run and jump. The hardest part was keeping her being a crazy dog. Diana

Not only will she be okay -- she'll be better. You waited until she had completed her growth. Spaying will reduce the possibility of mammary cancer. Surgery always brings butterflies, but you and Pixel will be absolutely fine.

She'll be just fine! When Mika got spayed she acted perfectly fine the day after when we picked her up, and there were no complications with the surgery at all. Don't worry! (Easier said than done :)

I totally understand your apprehension. I had it for Jimmy's neuter, and that's an even easier operation. Pixel will be just fine. The hardest part will be keeping her calm for the healing period.

Miss Pixel will be just fine, I turned myself inside out over Bobby's neuter, so I have some idea what you are going through. But, all will be well. I agree with Taryn that the hardest part will be keeping her calm while she is healing.

You and Pixel will both be fine. I'll be sure to think positive thoughts on Monday. And what a cute picture - although I begin to believe every picture of Pixel is cute!

Pixel will be fine! Try not to worry!

Brittany said...

I am sure Pixel will be fine. Having your dog go in for surgery is never easy even if it is routine. I was the same way with both my boys!

Kim said...

It is tough to have your dog go through surgery, but Pixel will be fine. She will be back to her cheery, bouncy self in no time.

I'm sure Pixel will be awesome and charm the pants off all the veterinary staff in the process :)

Of course it's a worry, surgery is always scary, no matter how routine.
But...your vet is trusted by you, and will do the best job possible.
Keep the trust, and know, that all will be well.
Darling photo of your good girl!

I know its a hard decision but in the long run the right one I am sure. Good Luck to You and Pixel tomorrow

It will be fine-but I'm sure she'll be embarrased by her bare belly!
