It's been a while since I've had to care for a dog after spay surgery and I have never had one come home the same day as the operation so I need some info. We adopted a puppy this week from the local shelter. She is estimated to be 4 mos old. We picked her up today and she had her operation some time earlier today. When we picked her up they were super busy and gave us a big run down on her worming meds but didn't mention anything about the spay. She is very groggy now and hasn't done anything but lay in her bed since we got home. I'm not surprised or anything. She's had a crazy day. Just wondering how long to expect her to be lethargic and not have an appetite. When do they begin to return to normal behavior-wise? Is there anything else I need to know besides keeping an eye on the incision? Thanks!
I feel like I should know this stuff but like I said, its been a while
