Pet Care After Surgery

  • Keep your pet quiet and confined when they return home
  • Offer a small amount of water and food that night
  • Do not worry if they are not interested in their meal when they return home - they've had a big day! We would expect they should be interested in eating again the following morning - contact us if not
  • Give any medications as prescribed
  • Phone the clinic if you have any concerns such as excessive licking or chewing wounds
  • Make an appointment with us for a recheck after surgery and for suture removal (if applicable). Suture removal is usually 10-14 days post op.
