|Husky of the Month|
Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|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.

Just wondering if this is normal. also no follow up visit. I think I irritated them because they like to keep overnight but the dogs are left alone at night and I thought she would be better served here with someone who could keep an eye on her. They acted very salty over it. I just didnt think it made sense because I would have picked her up at 8 am and with nobody there at night, seemed silly to me

It wouldn't be for me since my vet knows that I'll take any stitches out myself - "Please don't use staples." but then it's an 80 mile trip to the vet. In almost any metropolitan area, I'd find it odd to say the least.
The lack of pain meds I also find unusual, but I'm also one who believes that giving pain meds encourages the dog to move around more than they should as they heal - they feel "better" so they move around more, when they feel hurt they tend to curl up and wait out the healing process with less chance of them pulling the stitches out.
I'm not impressed by what you write of your vet, Most of my dogs are rescues and some of them come from the rescue already spayed but some don't. Those who I've had spayed have never stayed longer than the day "Drop her off at 8:00 AM and pick her up at 4:00 PM." is the routine. They've had roughly 8 hours to perform the surgery and watch for any coincidental problems (most spays are done in the morning so that could really be as few a four hours.)
Given what I've written, the following shouldn't be too surprising. I'd be looking for a different vet. A vet's office is not place to make a client uncomfortable, in most cases they're uncomfortable just having to be there - a good "bedside" manner can make a world of difference.
“Properly trained, a man can be dog’s best friend.”

My little girl wasn't given pain meds either after her spay (or my boy for that matter) first night is always a bit tough (you hate to see your pup in any discomfort!) but after that it went pretty smooth. Part of that first night is them coming out of their anesthetic anyways, so that plays into their discomfort as well and pain meds don't help that part.
