Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
I am sorry to hear about your dog's recent troubles. She needs to wear an e. collar to prevent her from chewing out her IV catheter as well as to prevent her from licking at her incision and causing it to become infected or to prevent healing. As far as her discomfort, your vet should have sent her home with pain medication. The combination I use more often for post operative GI surgery is gabapentin and tramadol. Was she sent home with any pain medications? If not, is there an emergency vet in your area that you can take her to and get a prescription of these medications?
