What to Expect After Orthopedic Surgery for Your Pet


Helping your pet during recovery will be an important part of its orthopedic pet surgery. At Animal Health Services, serving Columbus, MS, and the surrounding areas, we are here to help you prepare for surgery and recovery when your pet is in need of a procedure. Keep reading to learn more about what to expect after your pet's orthopedic surgery.

Why Pets Need Orthopedic Surgery

Your pet may require orthopedic surgery if it is dealing with a bone injury or issue. If your pet has broken a bone or is experiencing a degenerative condition, an orthopedic surgery can help to correct these issues so that it can resume normal activities.

What to Expect

Following your pet's surgery, it will likely be kept at the veterinarian's office for observation. This is a precaution for both you and your pet. Your pet will be coming out from under anesthesia. Animals can be unpredictable when this happens. Our team will stay with your pet to make sure they are doing okay and that there are no negative side effects.

When you can take your pet home, you should remember that it is in a lot of pain. Our veterinarian will likely give you pain meds for your pet. Give these meds as directed. Make sure your pet has a comfortable place to recover at home where their food and water are nearby. Also make sure you follow up with your vet on all appointments to make sure your pet is healing properly.
