Suffering is a universal feature of life, but that doesn’t mean we just accept when pets are in pain. There are ways to prevent and treat pain in pets, but the trick is to be able to identify the symptoms. Cats and dogs hide signs of illness or injury (an inherited trait from their wild ancestors), so it can be a challenge to confront what’s going on beneath the surface. Your friends at True Care Veterinary Hospital are well-versed in the coping mechanisms of pets in pain, and can help you learn when it’s time to intervene.


Exercising Your Dog After Surgery

After any surgery, your pet will need a great deal of rest so they can successfully heal. During this time, they might be immobilized or under strict orders from the veterinarian on how to promote recovery and mitigate any potential for injury or a set-back. Along with rest and recuperation, your pet will eventually need a slow introduction to exercise and mental enrichment.

The team at True Care Veterinary Hospital understands how important the postoperative period is in promoting the best possible healing for your furry loved one. Here are some tips and recommendations for safely exercising your pet after surgery, along with options for entertainment.
