It’s been 3 weeks since Oslo’s surgery, and he has been doing well. The first week after the procedure was actually a bit rough– he was in a lot of discomfort, and I wasn’t entirely sure if it was mouth related or if he was experiencing some back pain (I wish we could just ASK our pets where they are hurting!!) I made a couple frenzied calls to our vets, and as-per their advice, we increased Ossie’s pain meds to get things under better control… and by day 5/6 post surgery he seemed much better.
Mid-last week we had his post-surgery recheck, and everything looked great. His mouth is healing perfectly, and we’ve also been able to cut back on his pain meds to his normal amounts.
I’m VERY glad to have that whole ordeal behind us. I hope it’s a long, long time before either of my boys need to have surgery for anything at all. I feel like we’ve been in the clinic having something or another done every 3 months for the last while, and I am worn all the way out. Fingers crossed for healthy pups!
