|The things about the spay incision is not to let it get saturated. If you have one of those removable shower heads you can give her a "birdie" bath. So no standing water on the bottom of the tub, and don't go overboard on the shampoo & rinsing. Get the head, the shoulders, the legs, the paws, the chest, the butt, and maybe the back - just keep clear of the tummy. That was what i did when Maggie got into a cow pie in the yard 3 days after her spay.
What I did with Maggie when she had ear surgery (not quite the same, but I wasn't allowed to get her head wet at all & this worked really well)was I just towel bathed her (she was able to find stinky things during potty break outside to roll in - she just needed a refresher). I got her into the tub, saturated a towel, rubbed her down, then took some of the waterless dog bath spray (it is sold at pet stores & some sporting good stores), sprayed her down, and then rubbed her again with the damp towel. For the drying I just took a really warm towel and dried off all the wet parts.
