You will need to observe the post-operative surgical incisions for swelling, redness or oozing. Infection after surgery is always a cause for concern. If any of these conditions are present, or if you have any questions, contact your veterinarian for further advisement. If you are concerned that you may not be able to prevent your dog from getting its surgical site dirty, cage rest is an option. In this way you can be sure that your dog is staying clean, and is resting in an enclosed environement while the surgery wound heals. Additionally, you may want to use an Elizabethan collar to prevent your dog from being able to scratch or bite at the skin as it heals.
