- For spinal surgery (among other things hernia surgery), we will refer you to an animal clinic with greater expertise in this area.
On the day your animal has been operated, he/she will be somewhat drowsy as a result of the anesthesia. Leave him/her alone as much as possible and do not feed them. Water is allowed, but not too much and only in small portions. The day after the operation he/she is allowed to eat and drink again. Do not hesitate to call if your pet doesn’t want to eat/drink in the coming days, or if there is a clear swelling of the wound. Also blood loss is cause for concern.
The surgical wound is closed with sutures; these should be removed after 8 to 10 days (after the operation you will hear the number of days). For this you can visit one of the open consultation times. In order to avoid that your pet licks the wound, your pet will wear a special collar or a special outfit.
Surgical wounds will become infected through licking causing the sutures to release or break, it is therefore imperative that the collar or outfit remain in place.
Unfortunately, we have to pass the costs for treatment caused by licking of the wound on to you. As long as the sutures are not removed the dog can be walked on a leash and a cat should stay inside.
If you have any questions about the above, please do not hesitate to call us!
