Rehabilitation After Surgery
Your pet will be released to go home with a pain management program designed to maintain comfort and help your companion remain quiet and relaxed. All medications are provided through our veterinary pharmacy for your convenience. We may recommend home treatments to aid in patient comfort, such as cold packs or heat treatments. You will be thoroughly informed as to your pet’s needs prior to release from our hospital.
Typically, recuperation involves a period of physical therapy and rehabilitation. While our rehabilitation program is designed to provide maximum results in the least amount of time, expect some restrictions in activity and a period of therapeutic treatments.
At Carriage Hills Animal Hospital, we prepare a personalized plan for your pet that may include pain medications, nutraceutical supplements, and physical therapy to help decrease convalescence time. Please contact our hospital to discuss your pet’s orthopedic needs.
