Dalmatian getting vitals checked at vet

Always follow your veterinarian's guidance for your pet's best recovery. Here are some general tips, that shouldn't be used as medical advice.

  • Provide your pet with a quiet indoor place to recover, away from other animals.

  • Prevent/discourage your pet from running and jumping for up to two weeks after surgery, or as long as your veterinarian recommends.

  • Prevent your pet from licking the incision site, which may cause infection, by using a “cone”.

  • Avoid bathing your pet for at least ten days after surgery.

  • Check the incision site daily to confirm proper healing.

  • If any redness, swelling or discharge develops at the surgery site, or if the incision is open, promptly contact your veterinarian. If your pet becomes lethargic, has a decreased appetite, is vomiting, has diarrhea or any other concerns following surgery, promptly contact your veterinarian.
