maxx medical pet care
Your veterinarian will likely prescribe pain medication to help your pet stay comfortable during recovery. Be sure to administer the medication as directed and watch for any signs of discomfort
Incision monitoring Check the incision site daily for redness, swelling, discharge, or signs of infection. Contact your veterinarian if you notice any abnormalities.
Offer small amounts of food and water when your dog returns home. Gradually increase the portions over the next few days as your dog regains their appetite
Avoid bathing your dog for at least 10-14 days after surgery to keep the incision site clean and dry
Recovery Shirts are an excellent alternative to traditional e-collars for post-surgery care. These comfortable, breathable shirts cover the incision site, preventing your dog from licking, biting, or scratching the area while allowing for easy monitoring of the wound. Make sure to select the appropriate size for your dog and follow the manufacturer's instructions for proper use
Attend all scheduled follow-up appointments with your veterinarian to ensure your dog is healing properly and to address any concerns or complications that may arise.
