Glad he's doing well!
I'd be more than a little cantankerous after surgery. He's such a good boy!!

glad the surgery went well. My Patton had a lump removed from the lower part of his back leg. It wasn't anything dangerous and the vet got all of it removed. The toughest part was keeping him from pulling the stitches from movement. No running allowed for a couple of months! I hope your Newlie heals quickly.

Well, Newlie is home now. We had a time trying to get him in the car, we ended up having to have a couple of the techs help us. We probably could have done it but were paranoid about hurting him. I sat in back with him in the car and could not get him to lay down, I think that must pull on the incision site, so I tried to hold him steady all the way home. The instructions said no running, jumpimg, avoid stairs, contain in a small area, etc, so when we got home, I ran in and got a short ramp I had. It didn't fit very well in the opening of the car door, but Newlie went right down it, thank goodness. I then moved the short ramp over to the stairs into the house. He was able to bypass two of the three stairs that way. I pulled a mattress with a sheet on it off the bed in the spare bedroom and pulled it into the office where he would have someplace comfortable to rest, but not have anything to jump up on. I laid down with him for a couple of minutes, then turned the light out and closed the door as I left. He barked for a few minute and then all was quiet, I think he took a little nap.

It seems to me that he is in more pain this time than with the surgery for the ACL tear. He has cried, yelped and made growley noises more today than he did the other time. He is on Tramadol, two 50 mg pills every 8 hours, and is due his next dose at 3:00PM. He is not crying when he is still but sometimes when he moves which is to be expected. I am a little nervous about taking him down the ramp to the yard by myself, but hopefully all will go well. Of course, he is wearing a cone, too.

I will post pictures of his incision a little later, I may try to take a little nap myself now.
