Why Pet Gates Help Amputation Recovery

For most of us our dogs and cats rule our homes, which means they can roam wherever they like. Unfortunately when we are faced with a tough recovery like amputation surgery, we must place limits on their movement to avoid complications like broken stitches, popped staples and fluid buildup at the incision (a “seroma“).

One of the best ways to limit a new dog or cat amputee’s activity inside the home is with a pet gate. Gating off an area of your home ensures your patient can’t get into trouble by being over-active or attempting to tackle stairs before they’re ready.

Here are a variety of pet gates that any new Tripawd pawrent would find handy:
