Optimal treatment for your pet requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be critical, especially if your pet does not rapidly improve. Administer all prescribed medications as directed and alert your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your pet.

Follow your veterinarian's instructions for incision care. Your pet may need an Elizabethan collar if she chews or licks at her stitches.

Follow your veterinarian's instructions for exercise restriction. Your pet will have a large incision in her abdominal wall that needs to heal over the next two weeks. Too much activity can cause this incision to break open.

Depending on what procedure was done during the abdominal exploratory surgery or depending on the biopsy results, your pet may require further medications or treatment. A close working relationship with your veterinarian is critical to the success of your pet's treatment.
