I've only had males so I'm not sure what to expect so thought I'd ask your opinions. Lucy was spayed last Friday - came home and slept alot but was acting fine, chewing bones, eating, etc. until Sat. afternoon. Then she started panting and acting restless, trying to run in circles and by Sunday night I was holding her down to keep her from tearing her incision or stitches. I took her to the vet this morning and they increased her pain meds and added an antibodic but she seems to just be getting worst. The only way I can keep her still is in her crate with one of those collars on that is way too big. I'm afraid she's going to strangle herself in it since it's so loose. This evening her incision was red and swollen. I called the vet again and they said to give her another 24 hours. Is this common after being spayed? She is so miserable I'm not sure what to do. Thanks for any thoughts.
