what to do with a post surgical pup?!
My six month old pup Bailymoon just got spayed on friday! The surgery went well and she is on two types of medication that seem to be okay in her system with no side effects i can tell. The vet said she was a star and was not overly fearful of the staff. (my pup has major fear of strangers right now)
My question is: What should i do with her for the next two weeks while the incision heals?! I would not describe Baileymoon as hyper or extremely active normally but she sure is a puppy and I am running out of ideas for keeping her mellow during the healing process.
We do lots of chew toy games and kong stuffing, we do some crate focused games- going in and out for treats and are working on longer "stay" while sitting and while laying down, but is there anything else that has worked for your pups when they are in post surgical resting periods? Any wonderful suggestions out there by chance?
Thankfully one of the post-op drugs has a sedative effect and mellows her out nicely, but they only gave us a few of them and we are soon going to be out. EEEEK!!
