Customer Question
Hello! My dog, who...

Hello! My dog, who is a black lab, 14 years old, just had a procedure earlier today. He had a scope and biopsy done, up his nose. Since he’s been home, he’s been whining and unsettled. I don’t know if he’s in pain or not.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name?

Chopper

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Chopper?

They give him Baytril and aventi clav. The reason for his scope is because he has frequent nose bleeds with one nostril

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Chopper, please?

Dog's undergoing anesthesia may become nauseated and/or febrile and, yes, scoping of his nose may have irritated it to the point of it being painful.
