My female rescue dog is being spayed this week. Any special considerations to bear in mind?

Mary0319 asked:

She sleeps in the yard.. should I keep her inside while she recovers? What else could I do for her to prevent infection and keep her comfy while she gets better?
She’s getting spayed in a non-profit organization which spays stray pets and also owned pets for a donation fee larger than 10 dollars. I’m taking her there because I can’t afford a spay operation at the vet’s. It’s a very clean place with very skilled vets doing the surgeries… my neighbor volunteers and is a vet tech there, and she’ll be assisting my dog’s surgery. I’ll be calling the vet for some pointers and any medicine I should give her too, but in the meantime I wanted to start preparing what I could do.
She’s a rescued dog.. her age is about a year and a half. She’s mixed breed, looks kinda like a German Pinscher.

I just found my new rescue mix dog having seizure?

Vicm0322 asked:

I have a mix rescue dog about a year old and have had her about two weeks. I found her in the back room having a seizure. She was shaking all over. Thought she had a nail caught in carpet at first and was just freaking out. But she wasn’t stuck on anything. She was pretty stiff as I held her and all of a sudden she walked away, then was running around like crazy, like nothing ever happened. My vet is out of the office this afternoon. This happened about 2 hours ago and she is her normal self since. I have never had such a young dog have seizures. She was in the back stealing the cat’s can of food and ate that. I know cat food isn’t good for dogs, but haven’t had a dog who hasn’t stole the cats food every chance they got. Anybody know what might be going on? I am waiting for another vet to give me a call back, but I don’t want to be wasting valuable time if she needs to be seen immediately. Any help is appreciated.

Why is my rescue dog obsessed with licking my feet?

wv_scofflaw asked:

I recently rescued a 12 year old black and tan long haired wiener dog. Every time we get in bed he rushes to the top of the bed and flies underneath the comforter and proceeds to methodically lick both my feet one at a time. Then he roots his way out and goes to sleep at the bottom of the bed. Wonder why? More important, what was going on with his former owner???? Hmmm……it is gross and his breathe is awful. But he is a good dog.
