I had my Maggie spayed yesterday (friday) and I am really concerned about it. First her incision is over 2 inches long. All the other dogs I have had, including my last corgi, their incisions were never over 1 inch in length. Secondly, they shaved half her body. She looks like a chinese crested which I am extremely upset about. I know that they needed to shave her but not as much as they did. She is in so much pain and can barely walk. She keeps looking at me with a look like what did you do to me mommy. I feel absolutely terrible. She just isn't herself. I know that it will take a couple of days for her to recover but with her incision as big as it is, its making me wonder what else they did to her. When I look into her eyes its like a part of her is gone and she will never be the same. Has anyone out there had any personality changes with the neutering of your dog?? I just don't know what to do. I have cried all day today thinking I made a mistake. My husband wanted to get another corgi and breed them and I said I would get another corgi but not have the puppies because we have so much on our plates right now. I am wishing I had listened to him for once.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks both of you. I always tend to second guess myself. Maggie is doing better today. Silly me, I had a conversation with her last night and told her I wanted my baby back. She just sighed and put her head on my shoulder. (like she even understands me LOL). Well this morning she was in a much better mood and actually had that smiling corgi face. Thanks goodness.

You made the right choice and they all handle the same procedure differently. My one female when she goes through a c-section is a wimp...the other one handled it like it was nothing. Pain tolerances per dog are different. If she is still unbearable Monday call them. You could also check her temperature..pain can cause a rise in temp. but a consistent rise and holding is some concern for infection.

I would keep an eye on her till monday. then I would call the vets and explain the problem. Mine was OK almost right away. She had a big incision and was shaved a big area also. One of my Bassets and a Keeshond were slow to recover. I feel for her and wish you both the best. I think you made the right choice. They are much happier when they are fixed, and a new puppy is always a great thing to have.
