DETAILED AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS:
Feed your animal when you get home. Start with a small amount of their regular diet and gradually increase the amount of food each half hour, until normal amounts are achieved. This lessens the chances of vomiting. Make sure they have plenty of fresh water at all times.
Do not give any over-the-counter medications to your animal unless approved by a veterinarian. Some can be very harmful or even fatal. All animals will be given an anti-inflammatory medication, and pain medication to take home upon request.
No baths or swimming for at least two weeks after surgery. Make sure the incision site remains dry for one week. Discourage licking of the incision. They have stitches on the inside that will dissolve on their own, and the outside of the incision is glued. If the glue gets wet, the incision could open up. If this happens, please contact a veterinarian immediately. If the Life Saver is not open, this means that you should contact your local veterinarian or one of the Emergency Veterinary Clinics.
No running, jumping or rough playing is allowed for one week. Dogs must be kept indoors and must be walked on a leash. Cats must also be kept indoors.
Keep your pet away from the opposite sex for two weeks.
Check the incision site twice a day. There should be no drainage. Redness and swelling should be minimal.
Adult dogs may show a slight cough. A depressed, slowly increasing appetite for a few days is not unusual. Vomiting, diarrhea or severe depression are causes for concern and you should contact our office initially. If we are not available, and it is not an emergency, please leave a message and we will call you back shortly. If it is an emergency and we are not available, please contact your local vet or one of the emergency veterinarian clinics immediately.
Thank you for using the CSRA Life Saver to have your pet spayed or neutered. You have made the responsible choice which will be beneficial to your pet’s health and also eliminate the chance of an unwanted litter.
Please tell family and friends about our affordable program, we want to decrease the amount euthanized in the CSRA and need your help.
CSRA LIFE SAVER FEES
VACCINES & OTHER SERVICES
**Physical Exam Fee $8.00
This exam is good for one year, and is an AVMA legal requirement for any prescription medication of heartworm prevention and flea and tick prevention. If you are ONLY getting vaccines, an exam is not required. You will have the option of getting the exam. **This exam MUST be given by our CSRA Life Saver veterinarians as they are the ones who are prescribing the medications. We do apologize, but we cannot accept physical exams from your personal full service veterinarian.**
We recommend that vaccines should be spaced apart 4 weeks to ensure optimal immune response and the best health for your pet. For example, if your pet needs multiple vaccines ( Rabies, Distemper, Bordetella) we recommend waiting a month between giving the Rabies to give the Distemper and Bordetella, especially in very small dogs ( dogs under 20 pounds) who are susceptible to feeling very sick and run down after too many vaccines are given at once.
