Your dog has just been confined in our hospital and has received the best of care we are capable of giving. He may not have eaten or drank as he would at home and, therefore, may seem to be overly hungry and thirsty. Do not overfeed or give excessive amounts of water, as this may cause vomiting.
YOUR DOG HAS UNDERGONE SURGERY. Do not allow excessive playing, jumping, or running as this may cause damage to the incision and delay the normal healing process. If you observe any drainage from the incision, please call the clinic immediately for advice on further care. If your dog chews at his sutures, please attempt to discourage this, as it will cause irritation at the surgery site.
Please read and understand the instructions completely. If you have any questions about these instructions, medications or the care of your companion PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CALL US!
