Q. My female was spayed 3 days ago while she was in heat. She also had a hernia repaired & a rabies vaccination at the same time. Is it normal for her chest & stomach to be swollen?
My dog got spayed about 3 days ago, while she was being spayed the vet said that she was in heat and had to get her hernia repaired. She also got her rabies vaccination. Is it normal for her stomach and chest to be swollen up?

A. Giving a vaccine at the same time as a surgery is not something a competent vet should do. Vaccines should only be given to a healthy dog that is not under physical stress (like illness or surgery).

I’d get her to a vet, a different one. This is not something to be solved over the internet. Hopefully it’s nothing serious. Good luck with her, I hope she’s ok.

If you love your dog, you need to read this book! It will change the way you view the health of your pet. I can tell you this from experience. Feeding commercial dog food since 1950's, I became more and more concerned about exactly what I was forcing my dogs to live on. When I did a little research, I became very critical of commercial dog food companies.
