I guess it just depends on the vet. My vet's office is semi small and the vet, herself, lives right next door. It's not so much as a hospital, a little more personal hands on type of thing I guess. When I went to pick up Nora, all the staff was sad to see her go. She was the perfect patient and so sweet. They all said "you have a sweetie there" Made me feel so proud. lol

Commenting on your dog not having a bowel movement, my vet gives the dogs laxatives so that they don't need to .. well, push? They don't want that area working too much LOL, can you tell I know nothing about medical terms? Your dog may just be having a hard time with it.

You can put a little bacon grease or oil on her food to ease things through a bit.

She probably won't want to go until she really feels the need to. Since she is paper trained, we have taken her to newspaper several times and she will pee but nothing else. We've even tried leaving the room for awhile because she likes her privacy when she uses the bathroom...lol. Putting bacon grease on her food is a good idea. It will probably make her dry food easier to eat. She eats sooooo sloooowly.

All of my German Shepherds have prefered privacy too. It really made life easier because they always went behind the bushes in the back yard so there wasn't anything left where you might step in it. Kharma tries to do everything Bimmer does, so she's good about going in out of the way places, but Shiva . . . let's just say I'm careful walking outside after dark!

She's getting better about going off into the bushes though, but she WILL pee right on the walk of the weather's bad!

Yay! Chili finally had a bowel movement this morning! I guess now I can say that she's on the road to a great, complete recovery.
I'm a very happy mommy now! : )

ROFL! Did you ever in your wildest dreams imagine you'd be so happy over a dog pile? Or that you'd be discussing it at some length on the internet?

LOL...you know, I actually said that to my husband. I can't believe that I'm so happy over doggy poo!

LOL, sooo funny! Glad Chili is doing better.

I remember when my male Lhasa was a puppy and I'd take him outside and the first time he lifted his leg to go pee! OMG, I felt like my child was off to his first day of kindergarten. I actually had tears in my eyes and said he's getting sooo big! lol I kept telling him (Spencer ) Your such a big boy!

I really think I need therapy LOL

That's cute, Avenlee! I tell Chili that she's a big girl sometimes! (Even though she will never be BIG) Just like when a child does something correctly, it's always a feeling of satisfaction to see our dog do something correctly that we've been trying to teach her. It lets us know we're doing something right!

The vet I work for will let neuters go home same day if we get them done by 10 am. We release them about 4:30 if they have pottied and are up. We never let cat or dog spays go home same day regardless! I even left mine there over night! My vets live on the property of the clinic and its a father/son deal. They take turns checking on the animals ever 2 hours day and night! We will also send spays home on antibiotics or pain relievers if the surgery was abnormal or something was wrong. Sorry your pouch had that much trouble thats really sad!

We have high hopes for her! We are busy titling Zona in obedience and herding...maybe agility next! Fritzi was my obedience dog a long time ago! She is now retired! She is an OTCH dog! Hope I can get Zona and Jolet that far as well!
I also have 8 barn kitties and 40 cows.
