Question by docvahalla: Can a dog get a brain injury or have a stroke from spaying? And what is the prognosis from a brain injury?
My dog was spayed yesterday and is back at the vets after vomiting, crazy shifting eyes, disorientation, etc. Vet says poss. blood clot, stroke, brain injury. Is this something that happened during surgery and most importantly, will she live after something like this? What is the usual outcome for dogs with brain trauma?

Yes. Complications can arise from anesthesia. Please call an emergency vet vet right away.
Sorry, I don’t know how I missed the part where you state that she is already at the vets. GOOD FOR YOU!
Survival depends on the severity of the brain injury. If it’s mild, then she is likely to survive. Only your vet can determine her outcome. I’m so sorry this happened.
