Oh wow. My dogs were always really wonky when they came out of surgery, Ripley especially since he is so tiny . . . But it sounds like he was still knocked out when you got him?

You might want to put a shirt or something on him to stop him from licking his stitches. Did they give you any bitter stuff to put outside the border of his incision? Are you able to watch him so that you can redirect him if he tries to lick? If not, you may need to get him a cone or at least the bitter spray and a shirt.

Bear came home when he was neutered like that too. We put a blanket on the floor by the door we brought him in so he could just crash right there. He layed there for 3 hours a slept and the whole time I was freaking out. I even cried and felt sorry that I'm the one who did it. But he snapped out of it after his nap and he was back to normal. Did he come home with a lampshade on too??

poor little Ruckus.

A t-shirt would help with the licking, but if it doesn't you may have go go with the e-collar (the cone-type, not the shock collar )

It might be a good idea to get an e collar just in case. Bear came home with one but he had so much trouble walking with it that we took it off during the day when he was carefully watched. We put it back on him at night so he wouldn't lick.

Poor baby and poor you . That is why I go the vet way ...... early morning spay and neutering , so they can be monitored when alert . But ... must say this.... I went to check out EliN's Hunter for her for adoption at the HS the day he was neutered .... they wouldn't even let me see him until the next day ! I feel they rushed Ruckus through ... He'll be fine , but I think they should have been cautious . If you were late bringing him in , they should have rescheduled . If you forgot the date and knew they closed at 5 , I would have rescheduled . Sounds like you got him in about 4 pm . Don't fret ... live and learn !
