If this is just day 5, I'd say she should have some on leash exercise like a walk, but no running, or jumping. I had my girls in a playpen for most of the day, unless they were in my lap. After the stitches were removed on day 10 I let them do as they pleased.

The post that describes the kennel cough is priceless. My poor little Mandy (rip) got it AFTER the shot. Vet insisted on the shot 'cause we were going where there were about 150 dogs. We were on the way to camp gone to the dogs in Vermont, and poor Mandy sounded like a St. Bernard coughing! Vet tech at camp asked me to keep her away from the other dogs. So she spent the week in a playpen, and being walked away from the others. She was fine after 5-6 days with no treatment. Vet tech checked on her daily, and said she'd be fine.
