While I follow my vet's advice, it is usually the same following any type of surgical procedure ... keep the patient quiet, including leash walking only long enough to go potty - I call it being under house arrest.
Sometimes on nice days, I'll sit outside in a shady spot with the patient on lead and read ... this gives the dog an enjoyable break but if he starts to get excited, we go back in the house (I also have to keep the other Hooligans under control, quiet, during this outdoor break to ensure the patient remains calm).
