What can I expect from my dog’s upcoming surgery? - Animal Hospital of Statesville
It depends on the surgery. With sedation and anesthesia, sometimes the dogs aren’t themselves when they come home. I like to tell my clients that when they're vocal, that does not always mean they're in pain. Sometimes they are what we call dysphoric, or just, they're a little out of it from the sedation. And so they're confused, or they're vocal because of that. So that's one thing I like to tell my clients.
