…the nerve endings, but it is not a pain medication .. so to speak. Couple that with a good pain medication and nsaid and you have a much smoother recovery most times. 

I am not a vet, but I would suggest that you contact your vet and talk about more pain management
over the next couple of weeks.…

…quiet is really important. What Jerry and Sally told you was just the best, sound, advice. Lots of people don't heed that and end up with a longer recovery period. 

I wish you well and will follow your recovery. I am kind of hit and miss right now as we just lost our older pup 10 days ago. 

Hugs,

…know this is soooo hard to watch.  And,if you're  like those of us who had an early recovery  with crying, yelping, restlessness, no sleep (dog or hooman), you re  second guessing everything!  Right now you re  probably  saying "What have…

…Bets and not giving  Vet advice.

Continue  with the gentle massage around the area.  You can try some warm towels from the dryer too.

Every recovery is different.  Every dog is different.  I know that doesn't  help, but it is sooooo true! Your Ellie is eating, pooping, drinking  and is mobile.

…m sorry to hear your cat's recovery has been difficult. Thankfully she's improving.

It's quite normal for the scapula to be taken with the front leg as it was with my cat Mona.…

…and experience on NSAIDS for cats and have had a number of cats take Metacam for Cats as an anti-inflammatory and pain relief. For Mona's recovery she was on Metacam and Buprenorphine. I think she acted a little crazy from the Buprenorphine as she would suddenly race around the house. I came

…was not up on the latest pain management
protocols. So be sure to find out how Bundy's will be handled, it truly does make all the difference in recovery.

HOW LONG UNTIL YOU WERE ABLE TO LEAVE THEM HOME ALONE? My husband has taken a week off of work for the scheduled surgery next week, but after

…worked well together for pain and phantom limb pain.  You might consider talking to your vet and discussing her pain management
for the rest of her recovery.  

Im not a vet,  but if she stays quiet and withdrawn she may be having some pain issues. 

I hope some of this helps you💖

…everyone!

I posted Marie the chihuahua's [long] story in the Share Your Story forum.  Overall, her recovery has been going well and she is doing a bit better everyday.  Tripawds.com has been such a comfort through this challenging time!

Her overall…

…we continue to manage that with Gabapentin?  Is there anything else these yelps could signify?  While we've made it through the toughest parts of recovery, I know we are still not very far out on day 9.

She is supposed to get her stitches out tomorrow, so I will definitely talk to them about this

…that comes to my immediate thoughts is how active is your girl? If she is overdoing it that could be another thing to think about. Throughout the recovery process, keeping their activity low level is really important and she is probably not ready to be racing around like a bandit. 

Please let us know

…active (and sometimes not too) it is common for them to get a seroma
. It is one of the reasons we try to keep them drugged up and quiet during recovery. I would take a dopey, happy, pain free pup for a couple of weeks any time if it keeps them quiet and recovering smoothly.

These vets make me so…

…angry sometimes. THEY should be advocating a pain free, safe recovery, but they do not. Nsaid, gabapentin, and pain meds are what he should be coming home with this time. Please insist on it. The gabapentin is the go

…back to their normal... But they do. 

Proper litter boxes are important. Keeping them confined to small areas or a room that is safe during recovery is important too. 

Be ready for the caregiver to spend lots of time medicating for pain, feeding, and keeping them comfy. I always say get your

I hope your sweet Silas has had a perkier recovery since the first post.  My Daphne is about 9 years old and we went through left forelimb amputation this past May.  She had excruciating phantom
