Depending on the type of procedure, recovery from an anaesthetic may take a little time. You can assist your pet at home and aid them in their recovery by making sure they are warm and comfy, they have access to food and water and that they are given their medications as directed.
The anaesthetic was administered through an intravenous injection in the front leg (you may notice a clipped area on the foreleg) and by gas through a special tube via the mouth into the lungs. Occasionally this tube causes some irritation, which results in a mild cough following surgery. This usually clears up within 24 hours. If it continues we ask you to please contact our staff.
