What We Did...
It's been a week since Maisie was spayed. We were told no running or jumping for two weeks -- period. She had a lap spay plus a three inch gastropexy incision and was raring to go after a day and a half, maybe sooner. She did have to climb 7 steps to go from the kitchen to the yard where she does her potty business. The first night my husband carried her. The next day she was a little slow, but fine on her own.
The only thing she does here that's at all similar to getting on a couch (since we're meanies and don't let her on the furniture) is get into the car. She didn't do that until 6 days after the surgery but was fine to do it on her own. (And I think she could have do it sooner, but we'd have been careful and helped her.)
We've tried hard to keep her from running and jumping, but she got bouncy again on day 3. I took her out on a leash through day 4. On day 5 she got the zoomies and did some dashing around our very small side yard. She's been to an obedience class (day 7) and started short walks in the neighborhood (day 8). There's been some running and jumping, but we're still trying to minimize it per instructions. Her incisions are fine. Her two week check-up is next Tuesday. Hope this helps.
