    Wait to bathe after spay?

    Hi All -

    Does anyone know how long I should wait to bathe my 1 year-old beagle? She was spayed yesterday and she smells very strongly like the vet's. Not a pleasant smell, but I don't want to disturb anything.

    Thanks!

    - Nicole

    Brandi hand been spayed less than a week when I brought her home. I would wait until the incision is completely healed and the stitches are out. If the dog has a distinct odor that you want to get rid of, there are wipes available at pet stores that you can just wipe down the fur and give the dog a fresh clean sent. When she is completely healed and there is no chance of infection then bath her.

    What Brandismom said. She shouldn't be bathed (or allowed to swim) until the sutures are removed. Usually that's about 10-14 days.

    SOme vets use dissolvable sutures that go away on thier own. Wait 10-14 days before bathing.
    Unaltered dogs are at greater health risks, including some cancers. Please spay or neuter your pet!!
