How Can I Prepare My Pet for Surgery?

The best way to prepare your pet for surgery is to follow the veterinarian's instructions. This might involve not feeding your pet in the 12 hours leading up to the surgery, or it might mean keeping your pet on a regular routine to reduce stress. Each pet has different needs, which makes it important to follow the instructions provided by the vet as closely as possible.

What Should a Pet Eat Before Surgery?

Before surgery, your pet should not eat. You should avoid giving your pet food after midnight the day before the surgery in most cases. It is important to ask the vet about your pet's needs after surgery. Your pet may need soft food, for example.

Will My Pet Be Fully Treated After Surgery?

Each pet recovers differently after a surgery. Dr. Herman will be able to answer any questions about your pet's surgery and the aftermath of the surgery. Some pets will experience a complete recovery, while others may require physical therapy and medication.

Can My Pet Be Physically Active After Surgery?

Pets often need to spend several days or even weeks resting after surgery. Pets usually want to rest after the procedure, but you may need to make sure that your pet participates only in safe activities.
