Your pets road to recovery

After your pet has had an operation, you’ll need to keep an eye on him. He’ll need plenty of rest and relaxation. So if your dog or cat has recently been spayed or neutered, or had other surgery, keep him away from other pets and children while his incisions heal. Watch for signs of infection at the incision site. Oozing, swelling and redness are signs that the incision may be infected. Post operative pets are often in a weakened state and less able to feed themselves or resume normal bathroom habits. Cats should remain indoors for several weeks after surgery. During this time, your pets appetite and activity level should steadily improve. If not, call your veterinarian.

Remember, your pets count!
