Lilly has been recovering from being spayed. She went yesterday and got her stiches out, when I took her there to get her surgery she was scared beyond belief, she lowered herself to the floor and would not move. Yesterday she was a new dog, she went right over to the Vet with all smiles as she removed her stitches. The vet was amazing, and I highly recommend Glendale Animal Hospital for having amazing staff and great Vets whom your dog will love. Lilly’s recovery was long, mostly because how active she usually is, she loves to run, play, and be a rowdy dog. Her recovery caused a lot of sleepless nights because I was terrified of her pulling her stitches out ( she can not leave anything alone that itches). After all the stress, I’m relieved she healed perfectly, and I’ve noticed positive changes in her behavior after her being spayed.
Lilly’s Progress and Changes So Far
Her outside behavior hasn’t changed a lot, she still reacts like a hound dog, smelling and pulling to every little smell she notices. One of the big changes I didn’t see coming was her bark, before the surgery Lilly’s bark reminded me of a Mastiff bark, loud and scarey, but now her husky howling has started, which brings her personality out. She has a lot more to say and wants to be heard like a mouthy teenager, but cuter of course. Another way she has changed is her extra fat around her face is gone and the extra weight around her stomach. She has lost so much that her collar and harness needed tightened because it was sliding off. Now she hasn’t changed that much as of yet, but it does take a couple of months for them to calm down. So hopefully she calms down a little more after a couple of months because some of her bursts of energy can sometimes be worse than a toddler.
