Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Just picked my boy up from the vet and they had to give him a mild anxiolytic, Acepromazine, because he was very anxious. They gave us some to give to him to keep him calm and not get the zoomies and not pop his stitches. Poor baby has been sleeping most of the day. Questions are he has some horrible gas (so bad it clears the room) and he has pooped, it is from the anxiolytic or the Rimadyl (pain med)? Also they shaved his leg for the anesthesia, Is this normal and how long before it grows back? From the pictures below you can see how they shaved him.

They have to shave the leg to see the vein for the induction dose, should grow back within a month. Sometimes anesthesia and the pre-meds can upset the stomach, which would cause loose stools and gas. Rimadyl is an NSAID or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. It's to reduce the swelling from the surgery.

Thanks. His stools so far are decent not too loose but not solid. It is just the gas is tear inducing and I was wondering if that was normal. Guess I'm just going have to put up with a stinky butt for a few days lol!

Nah! Lol should only last for about 24 hours or so. If it persists, it's probably due from the meds you were sent home with. The rimadyl is optional, so that would be the first one that I would discontinue.

They shaved Lucian's leg too. Not that big of a spot though, lol. His surgery was only 10 days ago. I don't know about the gas, seems Lucian always has smelly farts. affraid I wish they would have sent me home with a sedative, I had trouble keeping him calm for five minutes. They doped Lucian up pretty good before the surgery too. He was rather anxious, and scared. Shaking and everything. Poor baby. But they did his surgery first because of it.
