We are now day 5 post-op and Tag is doing great! We happened to be camped at a location that was expected to get 97 degree weather, and we were only using solar, so no AC. We drove about 2 hours north to escape the heat and ended up in a crowded RV park so that we could use our AC for a week and keep Tag comfy.
I was worried about taking him on a car ride, but he did amazing. I held him on my lap, in his carrier with the top open so he could see the sights. This guy loves traveling! He purred, looked out the window and ended up taking a nap. I swear he had a smile on his face!
Tag’s incision looks great and I’ve been able to keep him quarantined in a larger dog kennel to restrict his movements. When I open the door in the morning, he bolts out like he never had surgery! I have to keep a tight hold on this guy as he is just ready to get on with his life. He doesn’t appear to be in much pain and I’ve made sure to keep him on his pain med schedule. I extended the doses by a few hours and he really seems ok with it. He’s napping now, so the meds must have worked!
