Our 9-month old golden lab was spayed yesterday. She came through the surgery just fine. She came home a bit sore, but popped right back to her cheerful self after a good night sleep. Good appetite this morning, no licking or chewing at the incision area, internal stitches won't be a nuisance. She has a supply of meds for 5 days for pain/inflammation control. Very pleased with office staff and surgery.
