Post-Dental Discharge Instructions:

  • Because your pet was under anesthesia, he/she may be irritable especially around other animals and small children.  Your pet may experience decreased appetite, nausea, and vomiting over the next 24-48 hours.  This can be normal.  Offer small amounts of food and water tonight and call the clinic if vomiting persists.

  • Your pet may vomit blood tonight or tomorrow especially if extractions were performed.  This is a normal occurrence.

  • If extractions were performed - feed canned food or dry food soaked in warm water for 2-3 days.

  • If your pet is being sent home with antibiotics, start the first dose tonight or continue giving them if prescribed before the procedure.

  • Start any pain medications tonight.

*Please call (973) 764-3630 if you have any questions or concerns.*
