I was bitten by an Australian cattle dog three weeks ago (I didn't even make eye contact with it; it was being walked on a leash by a young woman the dog just inexplicably lunged in front of her and sunk a tooth down into my calf!). I cleaned the wound carefully and put Neosporin on it, but it got infected and abscessed anyway. When I went to the doctor for antibiotics, she told me Neosporin is practically useless for any kind of deep wound. So I wouldn't put that on your dog's spay incision.

The bite healed fine, btw, after ten days of 2 different oral antibiotics. Since I'm the kind of person that even timid or fearful dogs warm up to quickly, I think my feelings were hurt more than my leg. ;-)

shasa, when they say keep them QUIETfor 2 weeks they mean it...its normal to look red when you let them run around/play (especially the day after) keep her on rest for at least 3 days to prevent pulling on the stitches. i know its hard but theres a reason they dont want the running around. im sure shes fine, but try to keep her calm!
