My Yorkie who is 8 years old had surgery and all his teeth

Customer Question

Hi, my Yorkie who is 8 years old had surgery and all his teeth were removed. Ever since he's had 2 episodes of stiff legs which point very straight and his head jerks a little. He was on heavy pain and antibiotic medication after surgery. Could this be a reaction to the medication?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the Yorkie's name?
Customer: His name is Tygger
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Tygger?
Customer: And my name is Elena
