    Athena has just been spayed and we have noticed that her voice seems deeper. Is that common?

  • Most likely this is caused by the intubation. If she were a barking breed you might notice she was hoarse for a few days. If it lasts longer than 3 days or she begins to cough or retch or seem to have difficulty breathing - she needs to be seen.

    Be aware too - she might still be feeling the effects of the drugs and can for a day or two afterwards. This could potentially change her sounds temporarily. If it lasts longer than 3 days - see above.

    Thank you so much. It's only been 2 days I'll call the vet if it doesn't go back to normal.

  • Arwen is always hoarse after intubation, coughs etc. It goes away. :) And if it isn't better in a few days, go back into the vet.

    She's starting to sound like herself again. Thank you guys so much. We were starting to get worried.
