    No pain patch for Vegas. My question would be..(since I'm thinking it's going to be fentanyl) why are they giving it to him before he needs it? It's a patch that dispenses pain meds for a solid 72 hours. (I can't think of any other one that they might use) I can understand if they apply it during surgery..but 8 to 10 hours before??? Also...it will have to be applied to a clean, dry, hairless area.

    This is if it's fentanyl. Google it and read up on it just so you know if this is the drug they choose. I think it can lower blood pressure and heart rate and cause breathing problems for those that already have difficulties breathing (BULLDOGS!!!)

    im wondering if its a lidocaine patch and havent heard of it being used before surgery but that doesnt mean anything. may want to ask on that one as i cannot imagine using a fentanyl patch i know nothing of this but wanted to throw well wishes from me and sarah to you.

    Poor little Gio! I have had no experience with this, but hope everything goes well!
