Moka was spayed 7 days ago...last Wednesday.
Everything went fine, no complications, she's healing well and the incision looks beautiful (they used surgical glue, so no stitches-LOVE that stuff!).
My question is...how long before it is safe/ok for Moka and Java to play together again? Keep in mind that Moka is 21 months old and Java is 27 months old-they are both young, so they play ROUGH.
The vet recommends restricted activity for 10-14 days.....is that about right? Is 10 days long enough? Too long? Too short?
When Java was spayed she was an only dog, so this wasn't an issue.
I want to do what is best for Moka, but playing musical dogs and keeping them separated is getting old, especially after having to keep them separated for almost a year through/after 4 surgeries. I forgot what a pain in the butt it is!!!Moka in one room, whining for attention...Java in another room, whining for attention. Keeping them apart at potty times, feeding times, ets...ugh.
How much longer????
Yup. Me too.

Strict two weeks for mine after they're spayed. No exceptions.
Do what your vet says. But do they really need to be completely separated? I would just keep them from trying to play, but would let them interact with each other calmly. After Homer´s surgeries (for ED and then neutering) I kept them separated for one week (Misha was in heat so she stayed at the vet´s house with her "surrogate" lab mom). Afterwards I just prevented rough housing, but let them spend time together under supervision.
I'd say 2 weeks with no crazy, rough play.
Longest 14 days of Coco's and my life.
It's a tough life.....but someone has to do it.

So, 14 days be a piece of cake compared to the year we've just gone through...but it's dragging by.
yep i kept my bella away from her friend bo for the full two weeks grandson wasnt happy he couldnt bring his dog over but he knew it was for the best.
