Your pet has undergone general anesthesia which requires an endotracheal tube to be inserted in his/her throat. Some irritation can occur and mild coughing and gagging may result. This should resolve itself in a day or so. If coughing persists beyond 1-3 days, please call our office.
It is very important to follow the doctor’s instructions, as closely as possible, following surgery.
Please restrict activity for the next 5-7 days.
NO RUNNING OR JUMPING IS ALLOWED.
Please do not allow your pet to lick or scratch at the incision. Please call the office immediately for suggestions on preventing this problem.
Please monitor the incision site for any swelling redness, or discharge. If any of these are noted, please contact our office.
