Post Surgical Activity and Complications

DO NOT ALLOW YOUR PET TO LICK OR BITE THE INCISION Licking or biting the incision could cause the wound to re-open and become infected. To keep your pet from licking the incision during healing process we recommend an E-collar be worn during the recovery period.
ACTIVITY The healing process takes 7-10 days. Any strenuous activity could disrupt the healing process. Some animals are active after surgery, while others are quiet. It is very important that you limit your pet's activity during the healing process. Pets must be kept indoors where they can stay clean, dry, and warm.  No running, jumping, playing, swimming, or other strenuous activity during the 7-10 day recovery period.  Do not bathe your pet or have it groomed during the recovery period. When outdoors dogs should be on a leash and taken for short walks only for next 10 days.  Keep animal away from all hazards (including stairs).
POTENTIAL COMPLICATIONS Spaying and neutering are very safe surgeries; however, complications can occur. Minimal redness and swelling should resolve within several days. Please contact us immediately if redness and swelling persists or if you notice any of the following: Pale gums Depression Vomiting Diarrhea Discharge or bleeding from the incision Difficulty urinating Labored breathing Decreased appetite Lethargy lasting more than 24 hours
