BUT she wasn't because I made that call and was able to make arrangements to pick her up. We had her get spayed, receive a dental and have the growth removed at the Chesterfield Valley location. When I picked her up she was in rough shape. She had her surgery on Friday the 16th and her temperature had gotten dangerously low during surgery. In fact, when I picked her up Friday evening her temperature still hadn't risen to normal. I was instructed to keep her warm and not even let her outside. I put a sweater on her when we got home and made sure to keep her bundled up in a blanket.
She was very weak and absolutely not interested in eating. In fact, it took her two days before she decided to eat anything. In my mind, I understood she had a rough surgery and she was in a new environment - it's not at all unusual to for a new foster to not eat for a few days. But I needed to get some pain medication and antibiotics down her as well. It was not looking good.
