Post OP Care Notes
It can be an emotional experience when your pet needs an operation and once at home, further care provided by owners is a vital part of the healing process and post operative care. Whether you plan on having your pet operated on or you already have, here are some post operative notes to help you through the recovery period.
After an operation, lots of rest and relaxation is needed so a comfy place to sleep in peace and quiet is recommended. Your dog may be wearing a buster collar - a cone-shaped collar that prevents licking - so it's a good idea to prepare your home and remove any fragile items that may be vulnerable to being knocked!
Cats should be kept indoors for 1-3 days following anaesthetic, so ensure that your home is cat escape proof!
If you are finding it difficult to care for your pet during recovery or have any concerns at all, please call us for advice.
