  • Administering the appropriate anesthetic and pain medications according to your pet’s weight and medical history
  • Administering fluids via IV catheter as needed during surgery
  • Monitoring your pet’s vital signs constantly during their surgery and adjusting the anesthesia as needed to keep them stable
  • Monitoring your pet closely while they are in recovery to ensure they awaken comfortably and safely

Tips to Help Your Pet Recover After Surgery

Here are some important things to remember when you bring your pet home with you after their surgery:

  • They might need to wear an e-collar or a fitted T-shirt to prevent them from licking and chewing at their sutures
  • You should check your pet’s surgery site daily for redness, swelling, ripped stitches, seepage, and odor
  • Your pet’s surgery site needs to stay dry and clean until the sutures are removed--that means no bathing or swimming
  • If you notice anything abnormal about your pet’s behavior and/or their surgery site, don’t hesitate to call us!
