My dog had surgery. Update: hey Bumper post 26
I know, right. He had surgery so of course he's crying. Duh.
But he's had 2 Tramadol and 1/4 Valium. He cries and cries and does circles around the house.
That cocktail didn't knock him out, so I called the vet and they gave me Buprenorphine. He is still standing (barely) and still crying. The only difference is that now he also looks stoned.
He has been up since 5am doing this and hasn't laid down once.
He felt good enough to scarf down an entire ham and cheese omelet though - so he's not dying.
He had to have an emergency neuter on Monday and stayed overnight where they kept him sedated. I hoped since it was "just a neuter" he'd already be starting to feel better today, but that's obviously not the case. He's 9 and it's obviously hitting him hard. Mostly I'm just venting because I have been on edge all day due to my inability to do anything to help him.
I hate this part of having pets. I feel so bad for him and he doesn't understand why we took him to the "awful place" and made him hurt.
I'm gonna go cry now.
