Dental Cleaning post op



*       Your pet may be drowsy after anesthesia today. Limit his/her access to stairs and furniture. For the first evening, give limited quantities of water and feed only a small meal (about ¼ of normal size) as anesthesia can cause nausea and vomiting.

*       If your pet has received IV fluids, you may notice an increase in urination for the next 8-12 hours.

*       If your pet has had extractions, feed canned or softened dry food (put warm water on the kibble and let it soak and get soft) for the next ______ days. Some blood-tinged drool can occur for the next 12-24 hours. Suture removal is not required.

Concerns – Signs to Watch For:

*       Vomiting, lethargy, & appetite loss.

*       Difficulty chewing after 7 days post-extraction.
