Does look like the face of one unhappy dog? My little 13 year old toy poodle who was 6.5 pounds and now is a 4.2 pound dog was spayed last Monday. When she was a puppy the vet told me she didn't need to be spay because she was so tiny and I accepted this advice. I was 23 years old, Akasha was my first dog ever, so what the hell did I know? Had the vet let me know the consequences, I would have spade her then. I am sure for those dog owners out there, you would know that unspade dogs eventually will develop an infection, called Pyometra
. My poor little dog lost a little over 2 pounds in 2 weeks and was one of the worst cases of this infection the vet has ever seen. I thought she was going through another heat, but nope, the blood tests didn't lie.
She went in for emergency surgery and came out with flying colours. She is a figher that is for sure. She is doing quite well now, but still spends the day at the vets until her stitches come out. I don't want her to be alone and have to hold her pee all day!
Get better little one!
