My lil girl got spayed on Monday. The vet told me to keep her away from stairs, not to let her jump, and basically to keep her calm to avoid bursting her stitches. The first day, she was SO sad to watch, she felt so icky and was still pretty doped up. The next morning, I could tell that I had my lil terrorist back. However, the FIRST thing she did was take a flying leap off the stairs, and jump on my brother, and practically drag me outside to go potty. Since then, she hasn't slowed down a bit. I have been keeping her inside her crate except for eating/pottying, and a few mins of (calm) play. When she starts getting jumpy and running, I put her back in because I'm SO worried she is going to hurt herself. I know I shouldn't keep her in there because she's got so much pent up energy, but I don't know what else to do to keep her relaxed instead of doing all the things she isn't supposed to. I'm wondering too, if it isn't due in part to her still taking pain killers twice a day. They are also to prevent infection, so I don't want to stop giving them to her, but I'm afraid they're numbing her up so she doesn't realize she's hurting herself and that's why she's being crazy. Does anyone have any experience to share?
