How can you care for your pet after they've undergone surgery?
Your pet has had an anaesthetic and may be sleepy for up to 48 hours. Allow peace and quiet during this time. A mild cough may be present - this is due to a tube having been placed in his trachea during the anaesthesia.
If your pet has undergone a surgical procedure, please check for abnormal events such as swelling of the wound, bleeding or other discharge, vomiting and interference of the stitches. Contact the surgery or come in for a check in such cases.
Stitches are to be removed after 10-14 days. The stitches placed in a cat spay wound may be dissolving. If they are still present in 3 to 4 weeks after surgery, then return for a check-up to have them removed.
