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 improve rapidly. Administer all medications as directed. Alert your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your pet.

Almost all dogs that have had surgery on their prepuce or penis will want to lick the area. This should be prevented, as excessive licking will slow the healing process and may also lead to the premature removal of sutures. Incisions that become red, swollen or have a significant discharge may be infected. Your veterinarian should determine whether antibiotics are indicated.

Animals receiving chemotherapy will need to have periodic blood tests. The CBC should be checked for any decreases in the white blood cell count. The chemotherapy may need to be adjusted based on these results.
