Normal/ Routine Post Surgical Home Care
Signs To Watch For At Home
Again, your pet is recovering from a major surgical procedure and/or anesthetic event so you should not expect it to be fully back to normal immediately. Therefore, you should not feed your pet until after 8:00 pm on the day of surgery. You should only feed 20% of their normal
daily intake during this first feeding post-surgery. You should only put enough water in their
bowl to provide roughly 15-20 licks/laps of water. You can resume normal feeding and watering
the next day.
Your pet may NOT resume regular, normal bowel movements for 24-36 hours post-surgery. This is totally normal and NOT a cause for concern. Your pet has not only been fasting for 12-18 hours prior to surgery they have also been under anesthesia. We always walk your pet within two hours post-surgery both to instill some fresh air in order to help dispel anesthesia, but also to encourage a return normal fecal and urine elimination.
