Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So, here's the scoop. Delilah got spayed on Friday. She is doing very well, but after walks she is drink EXCESSIVELY...to the point where she spits up afterwards. She didn't do this before, do you think perhaps shes just being over zealous.

I'm such a worrier. Crying or Very sad

She could be just dehydrated, but I would give the vet a call if it persists. Considering that she was just spayed, it's possible she got a UTI or bladder infection. Does she have to go out more often or is she loosing bladder control?

Welcome to being a husky owner, lol.

I would just keep an eye on her. She's probably just dehydrated from the surgery. Hailey drinks and gags all the time. Some dogs are just not lady-like Razz

Did she get any pain meds? Or any other meds? They may make her thirsty...Chili's on prednisone for a rash and he's been drinkin' (and peein') up a storm!

This is what I call excessive drinking:

That picture is priceless! lmao

As for the excessive drinking...if it worries you call the vet. I know certain meds can make them extra thirsty.

I'm a major worry wart with my 2 so you're not a lone! I'd call the the vet and ask. Can't hurt and it will easy your mind.

Oh, and I totally live by that quote from your signature =) I saw a bumper sticker which said "If my dog doesn't like you then neither do I". I need to find it! LOL

FLASHBACK............. Do Chili a favor and keep an eye on that rash if its gone quit the prednisone (steroid). Mylo had the same reaction to it that Chili is going thru to the point of having to wake me up every hour or less to be let out. He went thru hell and back with that stuff and I called the vet to see if it would be okay to stop. Plus after I discontinued the effects of it lingered for many many months afterward. It would have to be a life or death situation before I'll ever allow any of my dogs on that stuff again.


(I love the excessive drinking photo though makes me laugh every time I see it.)

Thanks, Len! He's tapering off now - it was full pills for 5 days, 1/2 pill for 5 days and now 1/2 pill every other day. Rash looks good now. The getting up every 3 hours at night is training for an eventual baby. OMG - so tired! How long was Mylo on it?

Glad you like the pic! Smile hehe I laugh every time I see it too! Laughing

Sorry for the threadjack! Smile

He was on it for just a few days when I felt the panic of his situation and knew I had to check in with the vet. I would have loved every 3 hours. Can't blame the vet its like a people situation and you never know who will have a bad reaction to certain meds.
