What to do after anesthesia? | Dogalize
Once home, keep your dog in a quiet, comfortable and soflty-lighted place.
Keep him away from any external incitement, such as children or other pets, and let him rest.
Give him food and water a few hours after he wakes up.
For the next few days, try to avoid stairs, runs and jumps, especially if he underwent abdominal or orthopedic surgery.
Usually, 24 hours of rest are enough to get your dog completely recovered, but should you see him stumbling or stunned, don’t let him alone.
Do not let your dog lick the wound and check that it’s not swelling or bleeding.
Usually, stitches can be removed 7-10 days after surgery
