Re: Re: Re: Re: Strange behaviour after being spayed- minature dachshund

Wow, little Mitzie has been though alot recently. I'm glad to hear she's doing better today. Sending good thoughts for tomorrow's vet visit.

This is really a slow discussion forum. If you want to learn more and talk about Doxies visit The Hot Dog Blog. You don't have to join unless you want to participate. http://hotdogblog.com/

Have a great weekend.

Thanks again Patt. Last short entry here, went to vet and explained whole deal to him, and he was not overly worried, he said it had been brought on because of the surgery and sudden stop/or change or hormones. Also, a lady in the lobby overheard me telling the receptionist, and she said the same exact thing had happened to her own Dachshund when they had her spayed at age 2. She said symptoms lasted about a week and then she was fine.
Doctor said he saw a 'hot spot' on her chest and told us to put neosporin ointment on it, and he gave us an 'elizabethan collar' (looks like a mega phone) to put on Mitzie's head to keep her from licking the hot spot. Her stitches came out and she is fine. She really seems to be getting back to herself now. Thanks again for the support, have a great weekend.

Re: Strange behaviour after being spayed- minature dachshund

We had a dachsie do this 8 yrs ago. We got her from a breeder along with her two puppies. After the puppies were weaned and old enough to be spayed and nuetered we took all three in to be "fixed" Two days later April was trying to get her two five month old puppies to nurse. It did resolve after about a week and a half.

Thanks for sharing...I am glad others have experienced this with their dogs, and it worked out. Mitzie seems to be back to her old self now, and we are thankful. All her swelling has gone down and she seems frisky again. A week's time really made a big difference for her in this area. Thanks!
