The Importance of Aftercare

After your pet’s surgery, it is important that you understand the best ways to support them as they recover. Excellent aftercare is a key way to ensure that your pet’s surgery is successful.

Your veterinarian will send you home with a list of permissible activities and other tips to keep your pet safe and comfortable as they heal. Immediately following the surgery, we will let you know when it is safe for your pet to resume eating and drinking normally. Sometimes, pets will have to be slowly reintroduced to food so that they do not have a negative reaction to the anesthetic.

Depending on what kind of surgery your pet has had, things like running and jumping are strongly discouraged. Monitor your pet’s activity and keep them comfortable throughout their recovery. We recommend putting together a safe, comfortable space indoors for your pet to enjoy while they heal.

It is also important that you keep an eye on the surgical site for any signs of infection. If you notice that your pet’s incision is looking red and puffy, or if it begins oozing puss or blood, call us right away. Keep the area clean but avoid bathing your pet until your veterinarian gives you the all clear.

If you have any questions about your pet during their recovery, please do not hesitate to give us a call! We are here to help you help your pet heal quickly and correctly.
