Newly spayed

Sasha, my16 month old staffy was spayed yesterday. Everything going well apart from the restrictions. I have literally turned my living room into a padded cell by removing furniture and putting 2 mattresses on the floor with blankets and quilts. Been following vets advice about walking her around the garden on lead but my garden is the size of a postage stamp and Sasha found the lead a tease so this evening I let her in the garden with no lead and to my horror, she did zoomies round the tiny yard ( no damage done ) but how long till I can take her out ( on lead ) ? Because we're both going to need sedation at this rate !
Btw seeing vet for check up tomorrow pm

I totally understand! When my springer was spayed it was very difficult to keep her not active. My vet gave me 10 days before returning to walks, and longer for off leash activity. I know its difficult, but you should probably follow the advice your vet gave. A spay is not a small surgery and you don't want to risk popping stiches. I found bully sticks and other chews very helpful in alleviating boredom! I also would use kongs and such so she could chew on something 🙂

Its been at least eight years since Samantha was spayed, but it was done at the shelter the day we picked her up. In addition to having been spayed that day, she had a raging ear infection, an eye infection, and kennel cough, so keeping her down wasn't much of a problem, since she felt so terrible. Be the time she got to feeling better, her spay incision was no longer a problem. Of course we sat up with her most nights for about two weeks.
