FAQ'S:

  • My pet is coughing, is that normal?  Yes, a mild dry cough can occur from the endotracheal tube.  If there are any breathing abnormalities or your pet appears to be in distress please call us immediately.
  • There is some swelling is this normal?  Swelling around the incision can be normal but if you call or email a photo we can verify it is nothing to be concerned about.
  • My pet has diarrhea after the surgery?  This can happen as a result of the anesthetic medications used. If it does not resolve within 24 hours or if your pet seems lethargic, is not eating or drinking please call us.
  • When can my dog go back to the off leash?  Incision healing takes 10-14 days.  This means no dog park, and restricted activity.
