It' normal for dogs to come out of anesthesia just as you described. Keep him warm and comfy and prevent licking. He'll be just fine. Don't offer food or water until he's totally back to normal/awake...vomiting is a normal part of coming out of anesthesia for some dogs.

Well that's one of the reasons they like to keep animals over night. That is what a pet looks like post anethesia. Most pet owners aren't prepared for what condition the pet is in after surgery. You have to monitor them, keep them warm, and make sure they don't hurt themselves. They look very strange, kind of a wierd stare, and when they start to become more lucid, they try to move around, and this is when they are in huge danger. I have done this more than a few times and it's not a case of just bringing the dog or cat home. Different animals take different amounts of time to become themselves again, they all react in varying degrees. I've spent a few nights sleeping next to a cage and moving a cat around every few hours to get it going and help it peform basic functions without getting hurt. At least that's the way it is with cats.

..stay with him and stop him from doing it. He will need you to keep monitoring him until he's stable and then I suggest you call your vet and get a collar for him in the morning.

Don't panic. Everything you are seeing is really very common. Just make sure he doesn't hurt himself. It will take awhile before he has his land legs.
