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. Alert your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your pet.

  • Have clients closely monitor their pets during the critical one to seven day post-operative period for signs of low calcium such as panting, nervousness, muscle twitching, leg cramping, stiff gait or seizures.

  • Return to your veterinarian for regular check-ups and blood tests to see that calcium levels are maintained in the normal range, as well as to monitor any damage that may have occurred to any other body systems, especially the kidneys.
