It is critical to prevent self-trauma to the incision, which will delay healing and or lead to incision correction surgery. An e-collar has been included with your estimate for surgery. Some owners may prefer an e-collar that fits against the neck (similar to a human neck brace). Please speak to VMC staff if you wish to choose a different e-collar. If you decline an e-collar for your pet's recovery, it is against medical advice, and incision repairs are 100% client financial responsibility.(Required) Yes, I would like an e-collar and I understand the importance of it for my pet's recovery. I decline an e-collar for my pet's recovery and I understand the above risks and responsibilities. I already have an e-collar for my pet. If you already have an e-collar, please bring it with you when you drop your pet off the morning of their procedure. It is very important for us to ensure that the size and fit are appropriate. Chill Pills (Dogs Only)Restricted activity is required for proper healing for 7-10 days. This can be difficult for our young and/or active/energetic canine patients. We have an oral medication that acts as a "chill pill" and helps your pet calmly handle the restricted activity. This can prevent incision complications which may incur additional charges and is very safe for dogs. Our veterinarians will evaluate each pet to ensure this is a safe, suitable option.(Required) No, my pet does not require Chill Pills. Yes, Chill Pills will assist my pet with the recommended activity restriction. I do not have a dog.
