Oh crap... missed this!
Yes, a lot of dogs have some dysphoria (in la la land
) on tramadol, and some will just kinda vocalize. The other possibility is that it isn't controlling his pain completely or that he is just plain confsed/frustrated that he can't do the things he wants to right now.
Any panting or other signs of discomfort? If not, and he is eating and drinking and doing well otherwise, I would chalk it up to the meds causing a "whoa" feeling.
(gentle ones) to him and to you!
I think the incision looks fantastic! GOOD JOB!!!
