You can take the responsibility of dressing the wound yourself or if the wound is more critical and needs professional cleaning, you may contact vet surgery which will refer you to a nurse.


Stick to the Medical Course Strictly

If vet has prescribed an antibiotic regimen for your pet for two months, then follow it religiously and do not be digressed if your beloved pet has started looking better only after a month. Strict routine is the key to an efficient recovery and health of your pet.


Do Not Use Your Own Techniques and Equipments

While giving medication to the pet, adhere to the apparatus and tools that have been prescribed by the vet to measure, dilute or dispense the medications. Never try to take a shortcut or any carelessness as it may ultimately fiddle with the medicines and harm your pet.


Consult With Vet before Pet Workout

If you want to take your pet to the nearest park to play with children or the pet gym to get him his strength back, contact the vet and follow his advice.
