Caring For Your Pets Post Surgery

Your pet has had a surgery, a traumatic event for a pet.  Now is the time to indulge her with extra love and oversight.  These simple tips for after-surgery pet care will ensure that Fido recovers as quickly as possible.

After-surgery pet care tip #1:  First and foremost, follow the doctor’s orders you brought home to the letter.   If you have concerns or questions about your pet’s healing after surgery be sure to call the office and ask.

After-surgery pet care tip #2: Rest. In order to heal, just like humans, the body needs to rest and sleep more than normal.  Arrange blankets for a soft bed in a quiet corner inside.

Pet care after-surgery tip #3: Restraint.  You have to provide limitations so that Fido doesn’t get too feisty.  A crate is ideal to keep her still until stitches are removed, etc.  If you don’t have one, keep her inside for the first 3 or 4 days and nights. Let her out, of course, to relieve herself, but do so with a leash. Animals should not be allowed to run, jump or climb stairs after surgery.

After-surgery pet care tip #4:  Administering medicines.  A sneaky but effective trick is to hide the pill or capsule in a small chunk of cheese, hot dog wiener, or lunch meat.  Your pet won’t really mind, because she got to enjoy something yummy.

Your pet deserves compassion for all the warm licks and snuggle she gives you.  While she’s ill, give her your best and she’ll be back to normal within no time.
