Minnie is very lively and we thought it might be a good idea to let her have a gentle slow walk around our Cul De Sac. I phoned the Vet (he wasn't in) and the receptionist said NO! Minnie should be kept in for 10 days until the stitches come out. I remember taking Rudee out a few days after she was done and she was fine, but then again, she was only six months old at the time. Anybody got any opinions on this???
