he is looking so much better. still sleepy, it looks like he is ready to go back to sleep.

when i got one of my house rabbits spayed i took a sock and lightly pinned it around her sergical area where she wouldnt chew her staples. i wonder if there is a way to rig up something like that until the morning.
or even the t-shirt idea... he gets tangle in it, so maybe i can pull up the slack where its tighter and pin it up.
know what i mean?
when i picked up him i felt like a bad mommy. seeing him like that! the lady did warn me though, she said he was completely out of it.

when can i take him back to work with me, and take him on his walks... and play with him? they didnt tell me anything at the animal shelter.

his breeder told me not to feed him tonight, and just give a small amount of water for now. so he hasnt had any food, and i cant get him to drink

He should be better by morning. Each dog reacts differently to anesthesia. Sorry to hear they let Ruckus go home still "under". It can be disturbing for some owners to see for the first time. Don't spray anything on the site, since they used glue verses sutchers. If a knotted t-shirt isn't working, is their a pair of boxers in your household? Don't tell anyone you're "borrowing" them. Lol. Adjust the slack to fit him and give him something to chew on, to take his mind off of the discomfort. Try ice cubes. He can be active again in several days. He's lucky he got to stay home with mom tonight and it sounds like he deserves some scrambled eggs for breakfast!

Boxers are a great idea!

You'll know when he's ready to resume his activities. But for now, he is going to have a squirrely night. You too. Make some coffee. lol.

yeah, it does sound like scrabled eggs or something like that for breakfast. but i am not suppose to feed him any more people food for a while, because i said so.
he has been having pooing problems lately and i bet its from cheese and peanut butter.

anyway... yup sure we got some boxers i could use. i am glad you thought of that.

you are so much help! did you know that :P

Not a problem... you are a great "dog mom" . Scrambled eggs, well done, shouldn't give him diahrea. Just a thought. Also, there's a very nice little pressure point in his ear, that will relax him, help him thru nausea and get him to sleep. Lay on the floor on your left side, dog lays down with you, his spine against your stomach. Spooning, if you will. Encourage him to lay his head down. Take your thumb on the outside of ear, index finger on inside of ear and massage ear very slowly from the base out to the tip. The majority of pressure coming from your thumb. Go back to base of ear and do again. Sounds a little weird, I know, but it will help him sleep if his stomachs upset again. It knocks out all of my "anxious" training dogs. It'll help you relax too if you're worried about him and unable to sleep.

Ruckus is still sleeping. he is laying on the couch right now. he drank some water and i gave im a few pieces of dry kibble.
he is STILL a bit dissoriented! when he was drinking water he put his nose way down in it. his eyes are so heavy looking. i hope by this afternoon he will be himself.
his is already jumping up on furnature again, and is going to the stairs to tell us he needs to potty.

thanks for the tip otch, but his ears are taped and glued at the moment and i cant touch his inner ear... since the are folded down like that. lol, he is so good with keeping his ears taped, its been on for a month now.. AND its crappy tape
