Dental Aftermath - Zonked Out On Tramadol

Poor Peggy yesterday had what should hopefully be her last oral surgery for gum disease which involved some 6 or 7 associated extractions. I really do wish someone could work on improving their teeth longevity at a genetic level!

 

The vet kept her on fluids and sent her home with a shots of antibiotic and pain relief, and and some Tramadol. The only way to get her to take the little 50mg tramadol tablet last night was to shred some of my chicken and put it in a little broth. This morning was easier in soft dog food. I'm hoping the 50mg tramadol twice a day for a week is sufficient for a 30kg hound.

 

Not much chance of getting that bed back for a while as far as I can see. The towel and mix of covers are for any blood.

Thanks everyone. The vet said they usually start to feel better on day 3 as the inflammation and bruising goes down, and that she could have 3 Tramadols a day if she wasn't sleeping well and even four if she was crying. The vet gave another antibiotic injection behind her collar and got a GSOD for his efforts which, I'm sure could be heard by everyone in the waiting room.

 

Actually she's been quite good today at eating small meals with shredded boiled chicken and broth, some wet dog food and even a small bunch of soaked kibble. I think she just swallows it so the risk of a piece going into a socket and restarting a bleed is low. She was keen to go on a couple of short walks in her usual places too. Thankfully the nasty cold weather has gone and it's 50 (10C) again.

Glad she is a little perkier. Hope she continues to improve!
