After spaying: how to care for a newly spayed bitch

After surgery, you should take good care of your newly spayed bitch so that she gets back on her feet as quickly as possible and wounds from the procedure heal well. Read here how you can help your dog.

You will usually pick up a spayed female dog from the vet in the morning or noon. Because the dog must arrive for surgery sober, practices like to schedule surgery appointments in the first part of the day.

Be prepared that your dog is still very wobbly on his feet and does not know what is happening to him. Spaying a bitch is quite a significant procedure and is therefore performed under general anesthesia. Transport your bitch directly home and help her into the car and up the stairs if necessary.

Proper care after spaying: First, a lot of rest

Proper care after spaying means, first and foremost: rest. Probably your newly spayed bitch wants to sleep anyway. Therefore, prepare a warm bed for her on the floor. Dogs freeze quickly after anesthesia and should avoid jumping. Climbing stairs is also taboo for the next few days, if possible.

Ideally, the camp should be in a place near you. Chances are, your dog will still be anxious and in pain after spaying. Your closeness and an occasional petting session will help your pet regain composure during the first period afterward. Moreover, if for any reason your four-legged friend’s condition worsens, you will be there immediately to help your bitch.

Feeding after neutering: this is what you should keep in mind.

Your dog may drink when he feels like it. Due to the general anesthesia, many animals feel an increased thirst. Nevertheless, do not let your dog drink large portions of water. There is a high risk that she will vomit it up again. Instead, offer your four-legged friend many small amounts of water in the first period after the operation.

On the other hand, you should wait a while before feeding. First, the anesthesia should have completely worn off, and your dog should be able to keep the water down safely without vomiting. Many veterinarians recommend that you start feeding slowly with half daily rations only the day after the surgery.

Taking care of a spayed bitch: how to heal the wound quickly

Over the next few days, the top priority is to heal the wound quickly. Usually, a spayed bitch wears a bodysuit or collar to prevent her from licking the wound. Make sure that, in any case, she and other animal roommates do not get to the site.

Spare your dog after consultation with the doctor and better take her for walks on a leash. The patient must not romp around shortly – this applies especially when she is out and about. After all, no dirt should get into the surgical wound. For the same reason, baths are not appropriate at first.

After consultation with your veterinarian, the first wound check may occur as early as the day after spaying. The stitches can be removed on the tenth to the fourteenth day after castration.
