Senior Amy had her ovaries removed, in an emergency hysterectomy.
24 hours after the surgery and once removed from IV, she immediately came home, from Vets.

All we did was baby the crap out of our girl.
- home cooked meals, lots of water, sleeping on the leather couch (cover with blanket, if needed), master bed at night, etc. / all normal stuff.
Pretty much a pampered and very quick recovery...we did not exercise her, for fear of sore parts (to heal).

Just ask your veterinarian and follow his/her instructions. Typically, if they come home on the same day you will not feed her, but she can have water. If she's doing well, a small meal in the morning the next day. You will need to keep her quiet while her incision heals. No playing, no jumping. I crated my girl for a few days and only let her out for potty breaks on a leash. Sometimes they are sent home with an elizabethan collar (the "cone of shame" to keep them from licking their incision. You need to be very careful with the incision and keep her from doing any licking so that it doesn't get infected or open back up, necessitating an emergency visit.

Talk to your vet - they'll give you instructions.

?? - my dog was 9.5 y/o when she had surgery and had vital internal organs, surrounded by septic poison
- your girl is probably a lot younger & much more active...than senior Amy (happy being a couch potato)
