    Default How long before...

    A female can get back to normal training after being spayed?

    usually around 10-14 days, after the stitches come out... check with your vet.

    As my husband days, some people (NOT YOU) don't realize that a spay is a MAJOR surgery -- even though they do it quick and dirty nowadays... I mean as far as how invasive it is.

    Check with your vet and ease back into training... But MINIMALLY wait a couple of weeks when stitches have been removed.

    Yes please confirm with your vet. It's major stomach surgery.

    Even tho I'm a beginner at this game.

    I can offer you this advice. We left our pup bordered at the vet's for the weekend she was spayed thinking that would be the best thing since she's so bouncy.

    We'll it wasn't they put her in a full size dog kennel so she was probably jumping and messing around all weekend. When we picked her up sunday afternoon she had a big seranoma right under her stitches.

    As seranoma is a build up of fluid from a the incision getting rubbed and stretched. That cost us 1 month of training and activity because I didn't want it to get any worse.

    They take forever to go away and can get infected

    So make sure you limit your dogs activity for atleast the prescribed time. Even if it means leaving her in a kennel other than washroom breaks and short walks.
