Having an operation can be a worrying time for owner and patient. At James Street Vets we try to assist the recovery period by giving the best advice we can.
It is important for the owner to realise that although our four legged friends seem to bounce back quite quickly, recovery time can vary from weeks to months. The following advice may be applicable:
♥ Regular supervision
♥ Controlled Exercise
♥ Using medication correctly
♥ Following dietary requirement
♥ Wound monitoring
♥ Attending follow up appointment(s)
♥ Keeping wounds/dressing clean and dry
♥ Keep in contact with your vet/nurse if any problems arise no matter how minor.
