My dog had test done today and was sedated. He is walking in

Customer Question

My dog had test done today and was sedated. He is walking in circles and when he isn't walking he is whining. He has recently become blind and was tested for cushings. That proved to be negative today. Is this normal after sedation.

Hi,

I'm Dr. Barbara and will be happy to be of help.

It is very normal for dogs to whine after being sedated at the vet. Walking in circles isn't the normal side effect of sedation, but if he is recently blind as well as being sedated, this could also be very normal for him.
