Before your pet’s surgery, your Austin veterinarian will perform a physical exam and order laboratory tests to ensure your pet is healthy enough to undergo anesthesia, as well as to ascertain that surgery is the best option. As with every service at Century Animal Hospital, we want to make sure your pet is receiving the care they need, when they need it.
Following your pet’s surgery, we’ll help you make sure you have everything you need for a smooth recovery. Our team will send home detailed instructions and will always be happy to answer any follow-up questions you have regarding your pet’s post-operative care at home.
Post-surgical aftercare can include:
- Moderating activity levels – Activities like running and jumping are discouraged while your pet heals; we’ll help you understand what activities are safe for your pet while they’re healing.
- Limiting food and water – Immediately following your pet’s surgery, your pet may need to avoid eating and drinking; we’ll let you know when your pet can resume their regular eating schedule.
- Administering medication – We may send your pet home with pain killers or prescription medicine to combat infection; we’ll walk you through how and when to administer these drugs.
- Caring for the surgical wound – It’s important to make sure that the surgical site remains clean so that it heals properly; we can equip you with items to keep your pet from licking or scratching their surgical site.
