Surgical Post-Op Care
We’ll make sure you have everything you need to get your pet back to feeling their best.
The surgery is over. Now the road to recovery begins.
The care your pet receives after surgery is just as crucial as the operation itself. The success of your therapy depends on how thoroughly you follow the instructions for discharge.
Our Post-Op Philosophy
Dr. Zeltzman considers his patients’ overall health, not just their surgical recovery when providing post-surgical care. Dr. Zeltzman begins this process by looking at the entire patient rather than just the surgery site. This begins with a consultation for each pet owner, during which he or she is informed about everything from dog food to pain medicine to arthritis supplements, dependent on the type of surgery performed.
You will be given discharge instructions that are specific to your pet’s requirements, no matter what the technique. This includes incision care, exercise limitations, physical therapy, medicines, follow-up appointments, X-ray procedure timings, and bandage replacements.
Your pet will require regular and compassionate follow-up care, no matter what treatment is used. You are encouraged to contact Dr. Zeltzman’s staff right away if you’d like more information on his treatments or postoperative care. They will be pleased to answer any queries you may have.
