Daisy had her spay appointment on November 15th and is healing well. She has not bothered or licked her incision at all. The physical exam findings during this appointment found that she has mild tarter on her upper canines, is in heat, and is underweight.
She went into her heat cycle the week before her surgery. Foster Mom is working on her weight gain with a mixture of dry and canned high protein food from Fromm.
A follow up note from my last notes. (A follow up visit was scheduled on November 5th and she had an EKG. The vet said that everything looked good and was in the normal range.) The vet did call me back a few days after my first update and told me that she has Sinus Arrhythmia.
This means that the heartbeat changes pace when she inhales and and exhales. This does not limit her exercise and should not affect her at all. Also, Daisy was very scared during the EKG and when she was at the vet. The vet said the results may not be accurate.
Daisy will need need a family who is patient with her and will keep her safe from fleeing. She is an absolute sweetheart and snuggle bug, but it will take time in her new family for her to show you this side of her.
