I am glad surgery went well and he’s resting. I know you must be exhausted too. 

Keep in touch and get rest!

YAY FOR SCOOTER!   SURGERY IS DONE AND SCOOTER IS HOME😁

Really glad he’s zonked out.  You may still have some rough hours ahead as he shakes off the anesthesia  and starts coming arpund more.

The incision may bruise some and have a little swelling over the next few days.  If bruising  or swelling gets more extreme, just keep your Vet in the loop.

If I read the pain meds correctly,  there Iis no Gabapentin  and Tramadol.   He rrally needs stronger pain meds  than just the Deramax.  This is major surgery and it hurts!  He srill has some hospital pain meds in him, but tjey will start wearing off pretty quickly.  So ask your Vet about those two meds and see if you  can get him on a schedule.   Heck, just going from two balls ro one has to hurt!!!  OUCH!!!

Try and get some rest yourself!  Getting to this point is exhausting!!

Give that special  boy a bit smooch for us!!

Hugs

Great news about Scooter! That’s pawesome!

Yes do ask your vet about additional pain medications, that is not nearly enough for an amputation surgery (it would be like a medical doctor giving a human patient an ibuprophen after lopping off their leg!).

When you’re able please start a new topic in Treatment and Recovery now that Scooter has graduated from the Presentation phase! We would love to hear how you are dealing with the stairs.

Good job Dad! 

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
