|She will be sleepy and lethargic for about 24 hours. She may whine when she first tries to pee or poop. I hope you have some pain meds from the vet. If not, call back and ask to pick it up. After the first day, she will start trying to lick the incision and you do not want to let her. I used baby onesies suit (cut a small hole for the tail) so that my girls couldn't lick. You snap it up with the tail through the hole. Take it off so she can potty when necessary. Try to keep her quiet and no running or jumping for a few days. I kept a leash on mine so she could be near me. Look at the incision so you know what it looks like. Check it daily for any extra bleeding, redness, or swelling. After the third day you can use Gold Bond Triple Strength Medicated powder on the incision to reduce itching, keep it dry, and prevent infection. Don't let your pup lick the powder! Here's a picture of my dog in her onesie!
