Hello all, our baby a 2 1/2 yr chocolate had a nasty battle with some barbed wire while playing in the woods with our 4 1/2 yr old yellow. She tore her soft belly skin connecting the hind leg something awful. Anyway after surgery and 10 days later the wound reopened. More surgery. Question is for how long would one expect to have to keep her immobile so it can properly heal? Vet said 10 days. Didn't work out the first time. Thanks
First OUCH!!! Second i would keep her on a leash and minimize play time. I would listen to the vet about he days.
~It doesn't matter how smart the dog is,it matters how smart the owner is.
The poor girl! I hope she heals soon! The vet left the stitches in our Sophie 3 weeks when she was spayed because she is so active. How long were the stitches out when she opened the incision back up?

it depends. take it day by day, have it looked at after 10 days and see what they say. Even for a regular spay or neuter sometimes it can take much longer (I have had two dogs take 3-4 weeks to fully heal, one because the dog was an idiot and kept pulling out the stitches, the other - we don't know, just a slow healer I guess)

I guess it all depends. Are you keeping the dog on some serious rest? Crated other than leashed pee walks??
