my pup was spayed on Tuesday and it was a wonderful experience. I've had many animals neutered over the years and this was the most loving and personal time ever. she did not have to wear a cone, came home alert and ready to resume her life. the other vet I have used sent my pets home still groggy with drugs that kept them pretty down and out.
she is even better today, two days later. thanks Chantilly animal hospital.
