It is important to monitor your pets wound daily, checking for any swelling, bleeding, opening, bruising, discharge or heat. Your pet must not lick or chew at their wound. If your pet is likely to interfere with the wound they may require a buster collar or medical pet shirt to prevent interference.
It is best to keep cats indoors for 7-10 days post-surgery, in order to discourage over extending of the wound site.
Dogs will require short, frequent lead exercise for up to 10 days post-surgery. Your Veterinary Nurse will advise further depending on the surgery performed on an individual basis.
