Question After Neuter Surgery

Was just wondering if taking Beamer for walks is accaptable after the neuter surgery? He had it done Wednesday morning.

Also, he is not wearing a cone as he does not seem to interested in licking the incision. He goes for it wevery couple hours, but we just keep a close eye on him and tell him NO.. I do not know if he is even going for the incision or if hes just doing his routine licking which he always does in the 'other' area.. lol..

I would see no reason why he could not go for a walk as long as he is up to it. I dont think you want to make it a "run" but I am sure excercise would be good for him - dont they always want us to get up and get around when we have surgery!!

I waited on taking Duncan for walks.He had his surgery on Mon and only yesterday(thurs) took him for a long walk.He did get some exercise since we let him romp in our backyard.
I guess as long as the dog feels up to it.

Wow, there's a lot of neutering going on here lately! I only have a month to go before my boys get neutered, so it's good to hear all the advice now!

I'm glad Beamer and Duncan are doing so well.........Dogs are like people the sooner you get them active after surgery the better. Do not force the issue or make him run but a nice walk would be good for him

Yeah Beamer is very hard to control now that we are trying to get him not to run ro jump.. he must have tons of pent up energy.. So my sister took him out to potty today on a long leash. He did his RLH around her till she was totally tied up and could not move her legs.. hahahahahaah
He did it twice to her! After she unspooled herself, he did it again! Oh, how I wish someone else was around to take a picture.. lol

Sully got snipped on Tuesday. He wanted a walk on Wed. We went 3 houses and had to pick him up and turn around. Thursday, he (Sully) went the full way and today, we went at least twice the distance w/o him even puffing! The vet called today for the check up as we took him that day in lieu of keeping him over night (standard practice). They told us, he will tell us what he can and cannot do.

I am a post surgical people nurse and know that the patient should have walked. I hope you have walked your dog because it would have made both of you happy. Do not make it a long walk, but a couple short walks/day are perfect at this time.

I'm glad to hear he is doing well Ryan.He seems to have bounced back rather quickly.That is great.I wouldn't let him go wild or jump..but walking should be good.Of course-you should check with your vet first......
