Hi. My two year old bitch was spayed last June as we didn't want to breed her, nor her have an unexpected litter (she has a regular dog walker with a pack). In October I noticed a swelling around her abdomen , we took her back to this vet who said that there was nothing to worry about and that she could not feel any swelling/ anything abnormal. I was not convinced therefore I called the same vet the following morning asking for my dog to be seen again that day for another view. The receptionist told me, yes that's fine, I could bring her back, but it would cost me more money! I was disappointed with the fact I didn't agree what the vet had said the day before and I wanted another view, yet they wanted more money. So I cancelled the appointment and did some research within the next couple of weeks and had her booked in with an independent vet. They straight away offered an ultrasound, x-ray and blood work which showed a massive swelling in her abdomen (they had no idea what organ it was it was that big). The day after she was in for emergency treatment and needed to have a kidney removed due to hydronephrosis. I need help and advice, is this due to poor spay work from the vet? I'm fully aware it's very rare what happened to my dog. Her lifespan has now been affected, she can't have strenuous walks anymore and her behaviour has changed dramatically. She was the most loveable dog to everyone and all dogs. Now she is aggressive to any dog that comes near her. Any advice please off anyone would be highly appreciated.
