Another neuter question

587 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  GSDTrain
In Ghosts' discharge instructions it said not to allow him to have any vigorous activity for 14 days. It's been 2 weeks today since he was neutered. He's still wearing the e-collar and I'm still taking him out on a leash to make sure he doesn't run or jump.

Everything with the incision looks good - we even have fur growing back!

When can I take the collar off? I had planned on leaving it on tonight and taking it off tomorrow, but I thought I'd ask here first. Also, when can I start letting him run again on his walks and throwing the ball for him? He's driving me crazy with all his pent up energy

is he licking at the incision when he doesn't have the collar on? if he's not picking at it too much I would take the collar off. We started throwing the ball again for Bogart after 2 weeks, and everything was fine

As long as it looks good- no infection or redness- I wouldn't see any reason for you to have to keep the collar on him. I would let him just be himelf- play, run, etc. Just keep an eye on it and as long as there continues to be no problems I wouldn't really worry about it.

Good Luck!
