If you move a picture after you have posted it that can make it disappear. I’ll go check out your blog 😉

I can’t see any of the pictures, any idea why that is…

The image file links for the photos in question are “googleusercontent” URLs that do no end in a valid graphic format file extension. They may only be visible to the user from the user’s account.

Yes. Photo link URLs must end with a valid image file extension (e.g.; .jpg, .png, .gif). Uploading images to your Media Library like you did for the others will always work best. Images hosted on private Google Drive accounts will not display, and many photo sharing sites do not allow third party hosting.

I was given the option of taking him home tonight or leaving him overnight but the lady that used to foster him is a vet tech there still and said she would recommend taking him home because there is no one there overnight and he would be all alone. I wish he could have stayed over but I wouldn’t leave him there with no one, all alone, after this traumatic day. Hoping for the best.

You absolutely made the best decision to bring him home.  I left Maggie for a night after her amp and quad pug Obie stayed after each of his knee surgeries BUT in both cases the facilities were 24 hour hospitals with techs and vets on site. I wouldn’t leave my dogs after surgery at a clinic overnight if it wasn’t staffed.

It is tougher to bring them home the day of surgery- I think mostly because the surgery meds are still strong in their systems and they can really be out of it.  I know for my dogs they were very vocal and really wonky coming off the meds (reports from the hospital).  Maggie could hop the day of her surgery but quad pug Obie didn’t try to get up after his second knee surgery and just peed on himself. Just be aware that Elvis might be more out of it than you would expect.

YOU CAN DO THIS!  Be sure you know where the nearest open vet is or have a phone number you can call if you have concerns.  Most likely you won’t need then but it will give you peace of mind. Be sure you understand the pain med schedule and dosing instructions.

Lots of people here have brought their pets home the day of surgery and have done fine.

What to Expect When You Pick Up Your Tripawd from the Clinic.

Remember – you did not do this to Elvis- cancer is responsible!  You chose amputation FOR him- to give him a pain free life!

He is home, he is on a blanket and just keeps moaning and occasionally yells out. Is there anything I can do?

I’m so glad he is home! You got this, anesthesia does funky things to them. They probably gave him pain meds too. 

That combination along with whatever preanesthetic injection can make them quite loopy. I have seen animals come in for routine spay or neuter get just the injection and howl after like they were just hit by a car. I would tend to lean toward that right now as opposed to pain just because of all the drugs in his system. 

Sometimes talking to them and if he’s awake enough for a small bite of food helps. I think about the times I went under and I know sometimes it can make the belly a little off.

Stay with him, talk to him, give him some loving if he will allow it and just give it some time. It’s a little freaky right now, I know. I have recovered hundreds of animals, and Huck came home just a few hours after his surgery. Take a deep breath and know that this will all pass. Keep a good eye on him, do you have any emergency vets that you can call if things don’t sell to be right? Always good to have just in case. If you don’t have one looked up, I would get that info now and just set it aside. Most likely you won’t need it, but I think it will ease your mind to have it handy in case. Did your vet give you their number? That is always good to have, and I would call her/him first if you feel you need to.

Hang in there, you got this! Sending big hugs to both of you ❤️❤️

Give him time to recover, this should all pass. You’ll probably see a different cat in the morning! When do they want you to start giving him his pain meds? What did they send you home with?

Hugs

Jackie and Huck

❤️❤️❤️

We do have emergency vets by us and we have their numbers. We have been there many times because our animals only seem to need a vet on Saturday night on Sunday!

My nerves are fried. He hasn’t stopped moaning since he got home but acts like he wants to get up and then screams out of no where. I don’t know what to do, it doesn’t seem like sleep is something he wants or can do at all. I am laying next to him and talking to him. Im scared to touch him or let him move even thought he has attempted to move himself a few times. So at a loss…

Please take a deep breath. If you have to get up, wash your face and compose yourself, do it now. Calm yourself, he is going to feed on your emotions and fear, even now. What does he love most in the world? Your love and attention. Your not going to touch his amp, but you can run his head, neck, scratch his ear, maybe even some kisses on the nose if he responds well. You are his lifeline right now. I’m so sorry this is a shitty recovery. I have seen more than my share, with my own included. I had Sylvester kitty, who at the ripe old age of about 17 had to have a dental with several extractions. I did the procedure, and although he did ok through the procedure, his recovery was awful. He didn’t know who he was for several days. I have never seen an animal do this. I mean, he was awake.. But he walked halfway over the rim of a chair and didn’t know how to get the other end over, lol. Funny now, not funny then. Needless to say that was his last procedure under anesthesia, he finally got the meds out of his system and was fine after. He lived to be 23 years old.

Don’t be afraid, you’ve got this. It’s going to be strange right now, this is not the norm for either of you. His body temp might be a little lower now from the anesthesia, keep him cozy. You may want to put a light cover on him. If you have some of his favorite treats, let him have a smell, see what he does. Don’t be afraid to touch and comfort him, it’s ok. I just had to stay away from Huckleberry’s hip and down on the amp. How is he laying, on or off the amp? If he is on it you may need to switch his sides, some don’t lay on the amp side right away, some do, just a thought.
