What to Expect From Your Veterinarian in Appleton
For scheduled surgeries, your veterinarian will provide you with a list of pre-operative procedures you'll need to follow. These typically include putting your pet on a fast at least 12 hours before the procedure, bathing your cat, dog, or other pet before bringing them in for surgery, and giving them lots of extra hugs and pats in the days leading up to surgery. Pets feel anxiety, just as we do. Giving your pet extra assurance before their procedure will help you both feel better.
Once the pet surgery is over, you'll receive a set of post-operative instructions intended to keep your best furry friend safe and to promote faster, more efficient healing. These may include tips such as keeping your pet away from other animals for the first few days following the surgery, care instructions for tending to incisions, and directions for giving pain medications. It takes both you and your veterinarian in Appleton to make sure your pet comes through their surgery without complications. It's important to follow both pre- and post-operative instructions to keep your four-legged friend comfortable and pain-free.
