Thread: How much rest after neutering?

  1. #1

    Default How much rest after neutering?

    How much time off should I expect to give a dog from hunting/training after having him neutered? Thanks.

    Put yourself in your dog's shoes....how much time would you need? A dog may try to do more than he really should, I would wait until the incisions are completely healed and also go with the recommendation of my vet since he is the one that is doing the surgery and can tell you whether it was "routine" or if there were complications of some sort.

    Go with your vet's recommendation. We just had our male neutered: our vet said 7 days crated (or some kind of confinement) or on leash, then another 7 days of mild exercise before returning to full training. I don't think the dog knew anything was even different after the first 24 hours.

    My vet recommended two weeks rest.

    I think some of the married men on this site could respond.
