Day 2

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Opie is doing really well.  He is eating and drinking water.  From some of the other posts it seems the dogs are groggy from pain meds.  Opie is pretty much himself, maybe just a little tired.  The only thing the vet gave me for him is Rimadyl and Cephalexin, which I assume is an antibiotic.  Should he have more pain meds?  He doesn’t seem like he is in pain, but he has proved in the past that he has a high pain tolerance.

    Good boy Opie! Eating and drinking and no pain meds, wow. Rimadyl is an anti-inflamatory, and cepha is an antibiotic. Raven was on morphine for pain the first day and Tramadol (not as strong a narcotic) for pain after that for a week.

    Looking foward to your continued reports!

    Jerry was only on tramadol. Believe it or not, dogs can often handle pain better than the loopy side effects of medication. Too many times we here about dogs whining, panting, and pacing because they are overmedicated. Congratulations for Opie doinf so well!
