Well I've put off posting til everything got better. Flo went to be spayed and the vet said everything went fine. She came home and was quiet fir a few days ad expected, she tried licking at the wound alot, and after a few days we noticed it was weepy,
She went back to the vets and turned out it had all gotton infected, the vet thought she was probably allergic to the internal stitches, they had to cut her open again and cut away all the infected tissue the. Sew her back up with normal stiches, also the pain killers she was on was upsetting her stomach so they had to give her daily injections. She had to stay in the vets for 8 nights!
She wouldn't stop licking at it and when they tried to put the cone on her she went a bit wild and apparently was trying to scrat at it with her back legs so they had to bound them to stop her opening the wound up.

She came home much better the other day and had her stitches out Friday, but still has the cone on because the vet said she could still open the wound up if she licks at it.
So poor flo hasn't have a very good few weeks.

Oh no, poor Flo! I hope she is able to get out of the cone soon. I threw Rosie's in the bin the other day and I swear she did a little dance as I did it.

How did Nell cope without her while she was in the vet's?

She was quiet at first but soon got used to all the attention. She did t like the cone when flo came home. Kept barking at it. And she has started chewing the outside of it now. There's little Nell teeth marks all around it.

My mum said yesterday that they were layer on the floor and Nell was chewing at the cone trying to get it off. They succeeded and operation release flo was complete lol! It's like they made a plan to get it off

glad to hear she is on the mend. As much as I know spaying is the right thing to do I think he fact it is an elective operation makes you feel guilty about putting them through it, especially when you hear about what can happen as per poor Flo. x
