Post Knee Surgery

Your pet has undergone general anesthesia which requires an endotracheal tube to be inserted in his/her throat. Some irritation can occur. 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 knee surgery.

Please make an appointment, with our receptionist, for a recheck in 17-18 days or as specified by Dr. Gruda. If you have ANY concerns before that time, please call our office.

There is not a charge for recheck exams. However, there will be a charge if a new bandage is applied, x-rays taken, or additional medicine is prescribed.

Please don’t hesitate to call our office with any questions or concerns.
