…likely tired from the surgery and the extra effort it takes to get around on three.  Also, pain meds can cause tiredness.

Have you read about phantom limb pain?  That type of pain will cause a dog to yelp seemingly out of the blue.  If his yelping is tied to movement it may be from the incision or surgery

…all, I am experiencing the day 3-5 crash, but it seems to be lingering on....Bella seems depressed and withdrawn : ( And she is experiencing phantom limb pain, gas, diarrhea, and bouts of panting that last for 30-60 minutes. My vet suggested stopping tramadol, which I did yesterday.  She is on a pretty…

…high dose of gabapentin (600 mg, three times a day).  My vet suggested keeping her on that for the phantom limb pain, but I fear that is what is making her so down.  Thoughts? Ideas?  This is breaking my heart : (

…how to address that. Massage and acupuncture probably? 

She has occasionally let out a yelp, which from reading here sounds like it is probably phantom limb pain. That breaks my heart and I hope it gets better. Otherwise, though, all is well so far! It sounds like things may take a turn for the worse at

…come home with Gabapentin? We didn't have that but lots of dogs who's parents post here did, and from what I've read, it really seems to help with phantom limb pain. She also may have overdone it a little and is feeling sore. I'd give the vet a call and see if he/she has any suggested changes to the medication

…modalities - Tramadol for pain receptors in the brain, Rimadyl for anti-inflammation, and Gabapentin for nerve pain including the potential of phantom limb pain.
