In our previous discussions with canine rehabilitation specialists from California Animal Rehabilitation Center (CARE) we discussed fitness and conditioning, and coping with amputation recovery. In this final installment, we hear the doctors discuss pain indicators, post-surgery advice for pain medications and how to choose quality supplements.
Here are some of CARE‘s post-surgery tips to remember:
- Keep an eye out for pain medication side effects; if you’re concerned, stop the medication.
- Use supplements only when they are needed
- Choose supplements that have been third party tested by unbiased organizations such as ConsumerLab.com.
