My poor puppy! She probably hates me right now. She has no idea what has happened.
Big inner tube....little puppy! Chow chows do not handle anesthesia very well. They actually have to use a different kind for chows than they do for other dogs. It takes a long time for it to work it's way out of their systems. She is still very, very loopy. We are staying in the garden room to avoid steps which I have barricaded. She sits and stares at the barricade. She is very unhappy right now.
The vet put a cone on her. That was never going to work. She was miserable. Then we put the big blue blowup inner tube on her and it was really too big. Finally I used one of my travel neck pillows and wrapped it in one of my scarves. It worked better and she got a bit of sleep last night. I, on the other hand, got very little.
This morning I cut a sock to slide over the back portion of the pillow to make it more comfortable and got rid of the bulky scarf. With 24 hour supervision, a few pain pills and lots and lots of petting, she should be good to go in 13 more days. Good grief!
