Achilles Tendon Repair Discharge Instructions

Your pet underwent abdominal surgery. Even though animals recover extremely quickly after abdominal surgery compared to us human beings, some lethargy and inappetence is normal after this procedure. If you are uncertain whether your pet’s behavior is normal, please contact us. In general, their attitude, behavior, willingness to eat/drink/go for walks should improve on a daily basis. If you notice any deterioration this may be a sign of a complication and may require our attention.
