Heidi called me after bringing Earl home this afternoon so I could hear Earl "hound howling" in the crate while Karma and Kayden barked at him because he couldn't play with them. Earl greeted me at the door with a shoe when I got home today (he carries shoes to anyone who walks in the door) and we shared a sandwich for dinner. Earl will be curled up in bed with us tonight and hopefully we will know more once we can narrow down what is bothering him.

We have an appointment with the specialist next Thursday. Earl spent most of the night up last night grunting and crying but I think some of that might have been from the anesthesia.

Did they give you anything for his pain?
Malli wrote:yeah, what your describing is a narcotized state caused by a pre-anesthetic, anesthetic induction, or anesthetic drug. If he has to have an anesthetic or sedation again and it's at the same place, you may want to mention it to them, they may either change the anesthetic protocol or give him something extra when he wakes up to see if that helps
