He's home!

Happy's back home, still a little woozy, and very whiny. He told me EVERYTHING! What those people did to him! Poor Baby! There was a spot of trouble with his heart during surgery, but the Vet said, he was not in real danger. Phew! He has to go back tomorrow morning to check, and clean the wound again, and do another EKG. But now, he can relax for tonight.
In the cage next to him was another White German Shepherd, female, older than him. He smells like a pharmacy, very strange. Biko doesn't even want to go near him. Right now he's sleeping under the desk. I'm just glad he's not licking his wound. We are supposed to discourage it.

This was a very exciting day for him. He started out vomiting in the car on the way to the Vet's. He slipped out of his collar, when he was supposed to go with the nice Lady, and he refused to step on the scale. He behaved like a brat. We'll see how it will go tomorrow.

Now we are all going to move to the living room, and cuddle.
Happy home after surgery

I am so glad that Happy is OK, sounds like a bit of a production all round. The Labradors left at home always sniff and then growl at the one who has been to the vet. Bit scary about his heart, he looks so sweet all asleep.
Gilly went to the vet this morning to practice being a blood donor!!!

Oh, thank goodness Happy is ok. The heart thing sounds worrisome. I sure hope he has a good night, poor baby!

Lots of cuddling is in order! Poor Happy had a very upsetting experience - but all for the best. That's concerning about his heart. Hope you find out more about that tomorrow.

Was the heart problem related to the anesthesia?

Glad to hear that Happy is resting at home. I'm sure he will be much more settled at home than he would have been at the vet overnight.

Thank goodness it all went well! Now is time for the extra love & affection.

We'll all know he's better and on his feet when he gets back to shredding paper and stealing your fiber. :)

Mine's at the vet too. Cruciate ligament done on Monday and she'll come home tomorrow. Glad Happy is doing well. It's nervous-making.

Oh je, das haben wir auch schon bei zwei Tieren mitgemacht, und als ich den Text las, hatte ich sofort diesen medizinischen Geruch in der Nase. Aber die stecken das ja schnell weg, in ein paar Tagen ist alles (fast) vergessen.

Liebe Grüße und hugs to Happy!

Glad Happy is ok! I hate operations, even those that are routine for the vets, there is always this risk of the anasthesia... I am glad that at my old vet as well as the new one I can be with my doggies until they are asleep and be again with them when they get back around. The time inbetween is pure stress - for me!

I'm glad he is fine and is acting just like a real kid would. :)

T-Mom said...

Aw, bless his little heart. (I'm sorry I'm so behind on reading) Did his EKG turn out okay? Did they do another one today? (I think this is the 29th...) I'm glad he's feeling fine now!

Oh, I want to give Happy a little snuggle and wishes for a speedy recovery. On a side note, one of my boys (cat) had minor procedure done last week. When we brought him home, the older kitty took one sniff and treated him terribly. He apparently smelled like an interloper.
