clingyness in labrador
« on: September 02, 2019, 04:41:17 pm »
Our five year old labrador was spayed about a month ago, and has become noticeably clingy over the past few days.  Can this be related to the spaying?

Was she very outgoing before hand?
Was the operation straightforward?
Was she away from you for a long period?

If yes, yes, no, then  it could be the change in hormones.  I would phone your vet to see if they can help
