As some of you may know, we adopted Savannah yesterday. She's a two-year-old collie. She was spayed on the 12th, and I'm assuming she's gone into heat before. I heard that this makes the spaying procedure more complicated, is this true? How long, on average, does it take adult dogs to recover from this? Also, it's been about eight days. Can she safely play with our other dog, even with the stitches still in? In a couple days, her foster mom said we should take her stitches out.
Also, we've been putting a little bit of of Bacitracin (antibiotic) ointment on the wound. Is this safe? We're pretty sure it is, but just wanted to check.
