Hi, I was just wondering, did you use both the gas and the IV when spaying your pug? I've heard that it can be harmful to use both but our vet said that it should be fine. Just wondering. Thanks

I'm really not sure. I guess I should've asked.

Our pug puppy "Dizzee" just had her spay surgery this morning. Thank you for posting pictures of Shelby to help ease the pain (for us, not Dizzee).

Pugs are just too cute. Why would you make them go through surgery. I mean, why bother if you do not have another pug?

Shelby had some little boy pug friends, and they were a little too interested in her, if you know waht I mean. ;)

It's up to you, you don't have to spay right away (or ever if you don't want to) but according to Shelby's vet there's health benefits to doing the surgery before the first period.

That is so sad she had to get surgery.And I think I want a pug know she is so cute.

my pug is 7 months old and iam very scared . becouse last year we had a11month old pug spayed and she passed 1hour after we brought her home but your story seems very postive . how many days did she wear the cone?

I'm so sorry about your pug. It's been a while, but i think Shelby wore the cone for about a week. She didn't need it for the spay surgery because she couldn't reach the incision. We had to keep the cone on her for her dew claw removal to keep her from licking the stitches. Had it only been a spay surgery, she wouldn't have needed the cone at all.

I had a pug Meiah and I went to have her spayed at 6 months of age. She died before the surgery ever happened, while they were putting her under. I have a pug now that is 6 and 1/2 months and am struggling with taking her to the vet to get spayed. These pictures and this discussion help though. I hear the health benefits are worth the surgery. Any comments?

I'm so sorry to hear of Meiah's passing. Shelby has been healthy since her spay surgery, so I can't compare what it's like to not have her spayed. I will say that she's never liked the attention of overly amorous studs, so I guess it's a bit of a relief that she's not in the market for that sort of behavior.

I lost my 10 month old Pug Wednesday during her spay procedure. The vet said her heart stopped and they couldn't get it started again....

Kacy, I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of your pug. I was nervous when we took Shelby in for surgery because of the risks. Please take care. I will be thinking of you.

Hi. I am trying to decide whether or not to have my 1 yr. old spayed. She is very spunky. Would she change into a lazier more laid back pug afterwards?

I didn't notice any change in behavior after Shelby recovered, but I have heard that the surgery can sometimes make a male dog calmer. I haven't heard anything about girls.

Shelby didn't get sick. She was a litte woozy though, which was probably the pain meds. But she was back to her ole happy self the next day.

I have a female pug called Lily who is 2 years and 2 months now and I am still deciding whether to have her spayed or not - het nostrils have not grown so they are still small like a puppies considering this her breathing isnt bad (only when she it hot or excited like most pugs!) I am just so worried she wont make the operation but then again I am worried that she will develop cancer if I dont have her spayed - any info, advice etc would be so appreciated as I really dont know what to do thank you xxxxxxxxxxxx
