Deja had abdominal surgery (not a spay) a few weeks ago. She wore the cone for about two weeks while unsupervised or while in her crate. When going for a leashed walk (after she gained some strength) or when supervised, she didn't wear it. I removed the cone after a little over 2 weeks. She never showed any interest in her incision. But I kept her calm by letting her self regulate in exercise without Griff present (!). No fetch for another 2 weeks. Swimming was not recommended for a total of 4 weeks. Even though the scar looks healed it is still a weak spot for a while. I started fetch very gently and prevented her from sprinting after a toy by hiding toys outside without her seeing me do it.
