|After a couple of surprise heat cycles (her previous owners told the rescue she'd already been spayed...apparently they didn't notice that she definitely wasn't!), Keiko finally got spayed today.
I can't really remember being around a post-surgery dog (the last dog we had from puppyhood was when I was a kid), and I'm just so surprised to see her so lethargic and out of it! I've been assured that this is normal, as is her upset stomach (I have a thread going in the Health Forum for advice just in case), but it's still so...worrisome.
It's weird, but I feel a little guilty about the whole thing. I mean, I know getting her spayed is the right thing, but I hate that she's so sick and it's my fault, really. She'll be better off, but...still. I'm, sure it doesn't help that I'm moving out on Friday and she's staying here (she's technically my parents' dog, though I've been taking care of her and their house for the past 6 months or so).
Anybody else feel a guilty putting your dog through necessary medical procedures? Or am I just crazy?
