    Default Flying After De-sexing?

    Shar, Nattylou, Grey's, MAC, Ashaari, others I'm sure but can't remember right now, sorry...how soon after de-sexing would you place a dog on a plane?

    Just last week I think Shar put Xavier on the plane the day after he was desexed, but that was an "emergency" situation. I'd want to wait at least 24 hours, but I think I'd prefer 2-3 days just to make sure there were no adverse affects to the GA.

    Haven't ever done put a dog on a plane so soon after desexing, so not much help. I'm not sure if there are any more risks, maybe ask your vet what he thinks?

    Breeder knows I'm more than capable of removing the stitches when I'm ready, so has e-mailed me on how soon i think she should be able to make the flight following her op. She's going in next wednesday now, not this Friday, as she hasn't quite finished her season as expected. Sigh. Thinking the following Monday suits us both, and that gives her five days to recover from any effects from the GA and to ensure there is no problem nor infection happening.
    What you think Grey's?

    I think that would be fine, assuming all progresses nicely. Plus it's a bigger op for a bitch, so by 5 days she should be healing up nicely. Taking out the stitches is the easy bit!

    Personally I'd have no issues with either receiving a dog or putting one on a plane under those circumstances.

    Damn! Means we have to wait longer for photos!

    I know. Breeder has just had one bitch deliver puppies, and has another litter arriving any day, so I think she's keen to get this done the moment Logan's finished her season and get her off to her new home asap.

    DA my only consern would be that the dog is well and trully over the desexing. Give it a day or two, just as long as they are happy and not bothered before. I am sure the breeder will know the dog well enough to know when they are back to normal. SO if its good for you to have them send her on Monday then have her sent. She should be fine.

    How old is she and how many seasons has she had? This sometimes impacts on how "hard" recovery hits the bitch.

    But I would think a young adult should be able to fly two/three days after op.

    De-sexing my 4yo setter hit her like a ton of bricks, but she's lean and I suppose having the hair follicle tumor removed at the same time added to her discomfort.

    Having said that being in a crate would of been a good thing for her, but she's not a stress head, nothing much phases her.

    She's 17 months MAC.

    She's very used to being crated, and sleeps in her crate each night at the breeder's place (and at previous owners place) and she has flown a few times, so i don't think the flight will stress her.
    But just wanted to see what you all thought about it.
