Why am I to avoid contact with pets?

Post Op Restrictions
Pets can carry bacteria so potentially being close to one would increase your risk of exposing your incision to bacteria. I would think that the risk would be very small if your incisions are well-covered. Talk to your Plastic Surgeon about clarifying their instructions.
