Dr. Kate Reynolds of Union Lake Veterinary Hospital offers tips on domestic animal medical care.
It is important to ensure your pet is provided with a comfy bed to rest in. The pet must be kept far from other children and pets. You should ensure that your pet sleeps in clean and soft bedding. Choose an Elizabethan collar or cone that ensures that your pet will not lick or chew at the stitches.
Balance issues can develop following surgery in pet animals. If they fall, it could be dangerous for them. It is important to ensure that you do not have access to steps. Install non-slip mats or at least a thick towel over smooth floors like wood or tile. If your dog who needs to leave and you are unable to carry it out on its own or accompany your dog in order to ensure that they are steady. You can also make an encasement from the towel, and put it around the stomach of your dog so that they can stand.
The pet must be fed tiny amounts of water each for a few hours. The next few days, give your pet uninteresting food, such as rice and cooked chicken. Ask your vet for the time when your pet will be able to back to regular food and treats. m2a32usmmh.
