Do you all remember what Bob Barker would say every day at the end of The Price is Right? Help control the pet population, have your pet spayed or neutered. Well today we put those words into action, and right now my baby Bella puppy is at the SPCA.
Now I know it’s the best thing, we don’t want puppies, we don’t want to mess with a dog in heat, and most animals that are spayed are just fine………….but this morning was very hard for me.
We chose the SPCA for a few reasons. A friend of ours told us they are very good with this surgery because it is what they do the most. The cost is 20% of what it would cost me at our Vet’s office, and they do almost everything our Vet does. I talked to two Vets I know outside our practice and both recommended and assured me the SPCA was a good place for her.
So this morning I dropped off my four pound little baby, and she is waiting for her procedure. I just called to check,and she hasn’t been in yet, but they said she is just fine. We are also having a microchip inserted, it was amazingly inexpensive and she’ll feel nothing while under anesthesia.
I’ll be picking her up by 4pm, and we expect her to be groggy and sore and just in need of TLC for a couple of days.
Sometimes even the right thing to do is difficult.
