And I thought vet care was questionable in Manila.

We had Sable spayed today. She was picked up and put int he back of a taxi at 8 this morning. She was returned at 12:30, carried from the back of a taxi again, with her abdomen shaved and stitched and her entire side of fur all bloody. OH MY GOODNESS. Thank goodness I'd prepared a dark, quiet corner, soft with brand new dog pillow for her. She wags her tail some, but doesn't lift her head or anything. I don't know if it's lingering anaesthesia or pain that's keeping her down, but she's definitely still totally out of it. I'm concerned having her directly in our care rather than recovering in a vet hospital but who am I kidding, there aren't any vet hospitals here and she's probably much better off here than where ever the surgery was done. Ack. It's going to be a long few days. The vet will come back tonight and then twice a day for the next few days. I hope she'll be OK.
