Understanding Veterinary Surgery
We understand that surgery can be stressful for both you and your pet. Our team does everything we can to keep your pet comfortable before, during, and after their surgical procedure. We will answer your questions and provide you with tips and tricks to help your pet through the healing process.
Amber Leaf Animal Hospital is pleased to offer a range of surgical care options, including:
- Dental care
- Laparoscopic surgeries
- Soft tissue procedures
- Spay and neuter
- Tumor removal
No matter what kind of surgery your pet undergoes, the aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself. In fact, aftercare can have a major impact on the success of the surgery.
What to Expect After Your Pet’s Surgery
When your pet is ready to go home, one of our veterinarians will send you home with a list of acceptable activities as well as other tips and tricks to keep your pet both safe and comfortable while they heal.
For example, immediately following your pet’s surgery, you will receive instructions as to when your pet can eat or drink normally. For some surgeries, the lingering effects of anesthesia can make your pet sick if they eat or drink too quickly following their surgery. We will ensure that you have all the proper information to avoid this.
Depending on your pet’s surgery, certain activities like running or jumping may be strongly discouraged. For most pets’ post-surgery, we recommend a quiet, clean place indoors where they can rest and recuperate. You should monitor your pet’s activity to ensure that they do not reinjure themselves following the surgery.
Finally, it is important that you keep an eye on your pet’s surgical site for signs of infection. If you notice that the surgical wound is red and puffy, or if it begins bleeding or oozing puss, do not hesitate to give us a call. We will help you get your pet back on the right path to good health.
