Can my pet sleep with me on my bed after surgery?
Depending on the type of procedure your pet underwent, it is not advisable they sleep with you immediately after or even in the weeks following their surgery. You may accidentally disturb incisions causing infections and other complications. You can comfort your pet in other ways by placing a favourite blanket on their doggy/kitty bed or by placing their kennel in your bedroom so you are always by their side when sleeping.
Is it OK to take my pet’s cone off at night?

Taking it off will expose them to possible incision tears, infections and other adverse effects that can complicate the healing process. After your pet’s surgery, we will provide you with all the instructions you need to take care of them at home, so please make sure they are followed accordingly.
