Pet After Surgery Care

Your pet's post-operative care is critical to their comfort, safety and recuperation.

Post-surgery discussion

After surgery, a member of the surgery team will discuss what has occurred during surgery and give you as much time as you need to answer questions.

We will then talk you through your pet's post-surgery care regime. You will also receive an information sheet, for your reference when caring for your pet after surgery.

Important post surgery tips

  • Please give medication as directed
  • You may need to restrict your pet's movement, at least until any stitches removed
  • Attend all post-surgery appointments, even if the wound is healing well

Please do not hesitate to contact us at Dr Paws Kotara if you are worried for any reason.

There are no silly questions! We are always happy to help.

We are conveniently located opposite Westfield Kotara - the pawfect location for Newcastle pet parents living in Kotara, Kotara South, Adamstown, New Lambton, Charlestown and surrounding areas!
