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.

|Subject: Aggressive after spay? Sun Aug 12, 2012 12:12 am|| |
Here's my situation. We have a 6 month old female and a 2 year old female. They've gotten along fine before the spay and would lay on the floor together, play fine, etc. No signs of aggression toward one another, aside from the first week of having Emma. Since they've sorted out pack position, there's been nothing... Until.... Both were spayed almost 2 weeks ago (it'll be 2 weeks on Monday). Since then, my 6 month old has recovered well and bounced back to her old self within a day. However, my 2 year old has been whiny, snippy and just plain old MEAN. Her incision looks well and she doesn't show any signs of outward pain. She's not aggressive toward us, but she's becoming increasingly mean towards our pup. If Harley (6 mths) comes in her general direction, she snaps at her. After this happened twice earlier today, I made up my mind to call the vet on Monday. When this occurred, we separated both dogs and put Emma (2 yrs) in her crate. However, just about 15 minutes ago, Harley went in her own crate and Emma ran out of hers, into Harleys, and started attacking Harley. We again separated them, confined Emma into her crate and made up our minds not to let them out together at the same time until we can figure out what to do.
Has anyone had any experience with this sort of thing? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I don't want my girls fighting... I just want Emma to be her old loveable self again... Help!

It's only been two weeks since she got her spay - that's not that long for a 2 year old female. It's pretty invasive surgery and she very well could be in pain. Pups seem to bounce back a bit easier. Give her more time.

I agree with Megan. Most dogs are defensive when hurt. They think another dog or animal will hurt them more. She will bounce back.when maggie broke her leg she was separate from buddy my mom in laws english bulldog because she didn't want him near her, for about that amount of time. I don't really remember when maggie got spayed she was the only dog so it wasn't an issue.
