    Default Bruisers post surgery

    I'm a wreck, thank god his momma has not seen him yet( she is at work) He had 3 surgeries today. He got neutered, a prolapsed urethra and his entropia fixed. It was a lot for my little man. He is so doped up that it's scary and comforting at the same time. His breathing is really heavy and he is still bleeding pretty bad, we have to go back in the morning because of it, they don't like to leave a bulldog over night with no supervision because of the breathing after surgery. So we got to bring him home to watch him. I finally got him to lay down and the breathing to get a little normal. I took his cone off as soon as we got home to make him feel more comfy, and just keeping a close eye on him. We don't have kids yet and it is hard to watch our baby like this, he is our kid. ( it may sound kinda weird but we have not experienced kids yet lol) thank you all for the support. If any of you have any suggestions they are always welcome. I will keep you all posted.

    Awe Bruiser I hope you'll feel much better in the days to come. You absolutely did the right thing with having it all done at one time. He'll be in my thoughts today.

    I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source

    -image-jpg-image-jpgHi Dave, I'm so glad Bruisers' surgeries are done and he is back home and okay. Having all 3 surgeries done at the same time was the best decision to do. We did the same with Blossom, we had her spayed and her cherry eye done at the same time. We also didn't use any cone with her or Dozer after he was neutered, they never touched or licked their stitches. I don't think they can reach there. Lol. If you find Bruiser is licking or scratching his surgery areas, you can buy a soft cone from Petsmart or PetValu, they are more comfortable than the rigid plastic ones. He will be on pain medications for a few days, so he should mostly sleep as he will be drowsy from the meds. The hardest part I found after the surgeries, was trying to keep them from running and jumping around, they were themselves pretty soon, and wanted to play as usual. You want to make sure he's not jumping up and down from beds, couches, etc. I hope he has a quick and easy recovery, and he heals up quick. Feel better Buddy.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Yep they are our kids so we totally understand! I have 4 skin kids also but always had pets and my bulldog before they arrived. So it doesn't change! Hope he feels better today, they really are troopers. The anesthesia can really make them feel loopy for 24 hours. Hopefully the blood is not a concern, let us know how he's doing today.

    Praying that all goes well with Bruiser's recovery. One of mine recently had a spay, and both eyes-entropion done at one time. She did very well. The worst trouble was her wearing the cone. I could not leave it off because I was afraid she would scratch her eyes. She has very tender skin and got sores from the come-I did get a softer one, but it was too hot(it was black/nylon. If I had another done, I would get the "donut". I thank @Bella and Dozers Dad for his concern when mine was done. Everyone was busy.
    Pray that Bruiser's bleeding stop and he does well!
