How Should You Care for Your Pet After Surgery

After your pet undergoes a surgical procedure, it is important to follow our veterinarian's post-operative care instructions carefully to ensure that your dog or cat recovers fully and quickly. Here are some general tips to help you care for your pet after surgery:

  • Follow medication instructions: Your veterinarian may prescribe medication to manage your pet's pain or prevent infection. Follow the medication instructions carefully, including the dosage and frequency of administration.
  • Monitor your pet: Keep a close eye on your pet's behavior and condition after surgery. Look for signs of pain or discomfort, such as panting, whining, or limping. Monitor your pet's appetite and water intake, and watch for any vomiting or diarrhea.
  • Limit activity: Your pet should rest as much as possible after surgery, so limit activity for a period of time as directed by our veterinarian. Keep your pet in a quiet, comfortable area and discourage them from jumping, running, or playing.
  • Follow dietary instructions: Our veterinarian may recommend a special diet for your pet after surgery. Follow these instructions carefully.
  • Keep incision site clean and dry: If your pet has an incision site, keep it clean and dry. Avoid bathing your pet or allowing them to swim until the incision has healed fully.
  • Attend follow-up appointments: Follow-up appointments with your veterinarian are important to monitor your pet's progress and ensure that they are healing properly. Attend all scheduled appointments and follow any additional instructions from our veterinarian.

If you have any questions or concerns following your pet's surgery, don't hesitate to contact your veterinarian for guidance.
