An introduction to post-operative and post-anaesthetic care after surgical or prolonged procedures

Introduction

Recovery from anaesthesia should be smooth, without excitement, or prolonged recumbence and should be pain free.

Since all animals will require some degree of special attention in the post-operative period, it is preferable to provide a separate recovery area. This not only enables more appropriate environmental conditions to be maintained but also encourages individual attention and special nursing.
