Hi everyone,

Our Rosie was spayed last Tuesday, and she did just fine! :) My question is: how do I take care of her incision? Our vet didn't give specific instructions about it other than to restrict her activity until the stitches come out (next week). She has not bothered the incision area until this morning, when she was licking it (it has to be itchy!) Should I clean it with anything? I thought about dabbing it with alcohol but worried that it might sting. She doesn't appear to be in any discomfort and the incision isn't inflamed or anything. Should I just not worry about it unless it looks like it's infected?
Also, when do you think she can run off leash again? She's dying to get back in our backyard and chase her frisbee!

Thanks everybody.
