What a day, poor guy.
Let me mention again that he is an irish wolfhound.
Not the easiest dog to pick up after an appointment like that. He is up the the 170 pound range and he didn't want to get up off of the comforter that they had layed on the recovery room floor for him.
They had a bit of a time with him because of his size. But then again they did know he was coming. They should have had some muscle there to move him around while he was out.
Poor guy was bumping into walls and doors when I got him home. Confused and drugged.
He seems to be alot better off now, he is coming around and I am only giving him half of the pain medication that they supplied to me. Because he wouldn't stop wandering around the house. Could not do anything to get that guy to lay down and relax.
They called yesterday to see how he was doing and to remind us again what a sweetheart he is.

Have you tried crating him or confining him to a pen or a particular room to get him to rest. I had similar problems with a Corgi mix I had neutered. I ended up putting him in the laundry room with a baby gate and a dog door. He did fine in there.

Jake is in a crate (really really big crate) during my work hours. I come home and let him out and feed him at lunch and then we are home about 6.

But he is still insisting on trying to run when outside to do his job.
I decided not to give him any of his pain medicine today because I would rather him favour it then try to run around.
He doesn't seem sore today at all. He isn't tired.
He is eating fine. Drinking regular amounts.
What a guy.
Just can't stop him.
I just caught him running and put him back into his crate early. I would rather he was mad at me then hurting himself.

They said 10 days, I wont beable to hold that dog back much past tomorrow.
