I had a bad feeling about taking her to get spayed but thought it was just me being me. Well I dropped her off this morning and they said they would call when it was done. 1:30 they finally called me. Sydney had a slight complication. They said her uterus wasn't as strong as it should be for a dog her age and that an ovary tore away so they had to find it by moving her insides around. They said she has a longer than normal incision due to that and that she is going to be in more pain than normal. They said they were going to give her an extra dose of morphine this afternoon and since they had to move her guts around she could have vomitting and diarreha so to be aware of that. They said they might send her home on an anti- diarrehal medicine so we shall see. I get to pick her up in 2 hours. The poor girl is going to be extra mad at me.
Sydney is now home and in her crate sleeping. I did get a little wag of the down tail when I picked her up. She really is tired from morphine and traquilzer. They sent her home with Rimadyl threw the weekend and Primor due to moving her insides around. I will try and get a picture of her incision in the next couple of days so you can tell me how much longer it is than normal since my other dog was from the shelter and had already been spayed. I am to keep her quiet for 10days so that should be fun and take her back in 10 to 14days to get her stitches out. Thanks everyone.
Ah-poor girl. Make sure to give her an extra hug for me.
awww, poor sydney. i'm glad she's out of surgery though, and wish her a speedy recovery.
Maybe someone else knows, but, is that a normal complication?
Wow, sorry to hear about the complications. Riley just went in yesterday, no problems except a little dopeyness (well, more dopeyness than normal). I'd be curious to know how your vet stitched her up? Riley has stitches inside, then they glued the outside skin closed. This is supposed to help prevent her from scratching the stitches, and so far it has. I don't have to take her back to get stitches removed either. I'll see if I can get a pic of it soon. Think it's about 3-4" long....
Poor baby girl. Hoping for a speedy recovery for Syd.

Awwww.... poor girl !! I'd be boiling mad at that Vet if I were you !! I don't like the sounds of that ! Sounds purely experimental to me!! Gosh, I'd be SO angry !!!! I would probably never go back to that vet again !! I hope she has a speedy recovery with no more complications !!
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
Poor girl. I am glad she is home & has a speedy recovery. Keeping these labs quiet is a real chore.
