She's not allowed out at all, or just not off-leash? How are you handling the potty training so far?
As for the socialization, definitely get her started as soon as she's able to interact. Does she seem reactive at all because she's wearing the cone? If she's not, maybe introducing her to calm, older children would be okay at this point.
I can't remember what they told us about putting creams on Ridge's lesions or scabs. I'm pretty sure we didn't use anything. Your vet should be able to advise on what's best--that's a good question for Friday.
I hope you get good news on Friday!
Keep us posted, pls!
