Caring for My Dog After It Has Been Spayed

I just had my dog spaded. She does not want to drink water. What am I doing wrong?

She might be nauseated from the anesthesia. If she doesn't get better by tomorrow call the vet, as they have post surgery care included in the spay fee. Good luck.

Try saltine crackers for her. That will settle her stomach. Then put a little sugar in the water a couple of teaspoons in a small bowl. She will be more likely to take the water then. Offer it to her frequently, every hour or so.

As far as incision care. I used stick deodorant around the far edges as they dont like the taste and will leave the stitches alone. Just be sure to use a new stick and dont get it in the wound. Best of luck.

The vet should have given you care instructions to take home after she was spayed. I would call them first and go from there.
