Guestion about females please? Vote for this post

Is it normal that if a female is fixed that they have to spend the night?
Do they have restrictions and for how long?
Am worried already about it.
Winter is so tiny I hate to do this but I also know it needs to be done.
Thanks in advance,
Love,Yoka,Levi and Moshe @RB
Xxxxxooooo

My Kayla stayed overnite, but that was 16 years ago.  IF she's done early in the am, it's possible she could come home that day. I've brought a couple of my fosters home the same day.  But, you'd have to keep her quiet.  I put my pups in an x-pen and sleep on the couch so I can hear if they have any pain or issues.  If your Vet has someone that stays overnite, they can watch them.  If you bring her home, be sure to locate a Vet or emergency Vet that is open so you can take her there if need be.

Yoka, as others have said, I'd make sure there is someone with them overnight, if it's required she stay.  Once I found out that my vet clinic does not have someone on staff overnight, I refuse to leave any of my girls there. 

Good luck, I'm sure she'll be fine.

All of my girls had to stay overnight with restrictions on running and jumping when they came home. I agree--make sure that the vet has someone there round the clock. I'd tell you to relax, but I know that's impossible when you're a pet parent. :)

I know they can stay overnight Yoka,but  Emma our Collie and Little Gremmie and  Ellie never did..they came home late in the afternoon and Ellie also had a wee Umbilical hernia sorted out also when she was speyed and I remember being so worried..so I know how you must be feeling but ..they come back a bit sleepy and within a couple of days zooming again...in fact if I remember within the next day with Ellie!..none wore the lampshade collars and they were all fine....I am sure winter will be just the same and it is a routine op for the vets that they perform a lot of...please know we are thinking of you though ,when does Winter go in for the op?

We have to be at the vet at 7:30 AM Annie. Winter is not aloud to eat or drink anything after 10:00PM the evening before till we bring her at 7:30 AM.
I will make sure that someone will be there and if not I want to take her home..
Hope she will recover soon but she is 6 years already.
Hope you pray for Winter Annie.

Keeley didn't stay overnight when she was spayed.  As a matter of fact when she had her surgery to remove the tumor on her liver, I took her in at 8:00am and picked her up at 2:30. She was a little slow but the next day she was her usual self.
They didn't even put a collar on her to prevent her from getting to her incision.
They put a white knitted stocking on her and she never tried to get to her incision.
Her incision for the liver surgery was a bit longer that the one from when she was spayed.

I wouldn't worry about Winter.  Keeley, because of the tumor had gone down to 12 lbs  and she came through with flying colors.  She has also been putting on weight since her surgery.

Here in Australia generally you drop them off between 8am and 9am and pick them up after 4pm onwards depending on where they fit in the schedule it may not be until 6pm or 6.30pm. I've never had to leave my girls overnight after a spey. The only time Hannah stayed overnight was when she had pancreatitis and had to go on a drip, she stayed 2 or 3 nights. It was awful for me, but good for her.

I forgot to add here they don't tend to leave them overnight as the clinics aren't staffed overnight if you want your dog supervised it has to be transferred to the Emergency Clinic (big bucks)
