It is on the floor though so it's not a distance at all for him to move. I can tell he is still in pain and he tenses up if he moves and it hurts. He is eating fine, but is not wanting to drink much water. I keep making him eat ice cubes, which he does, but not without spitting them at me a few times. The vet says that he should start to drink more water, but if he isn't then bring him back in. I'm thinking he doesn't want to drink because it makes him pee and he's like "Hello lady this stuff makes me pee and it hurts when I pee". Vet also said if he has an accident again (which he will) to us a warm rag and gently dab the area and then gently dry the area but to try and only clean where and when necessary. Husband says if this and George doesn't help prepare us for children he doesn't know what will. Ha. So long story short, mom and dad are sleepy and achy, but George is doing much better. I am just so thankful they were caught in time.
    Great news, just like 2bullymama said, first night is the hardest, and that is done! Yes, he had major surgery so he will be in pain, just like we would as humans, sore, etc. Keep on exact times with his meds to help him, do not worry at all about the eating/drinking... he will on his own when he's ready. Tyson didn't fully start drinking on his own like normal until almost a week later. We did add a little broth or coconut water to his food, to keep him hydrated & it worked well. Along with maybe small amounts of it on smaller bow. The best thing you can for him, you have... and that's be right there next to him, keeping him cozy. Everyday will get better from here on out. Trust me, when Tyson was sick then had surgery.. I didn't sleep for days straight. I lived off coffee, and looked like a bum on the street, covered in dog hair

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    @2BullyMama they gave us Rimadyl for pain and inflammation. He gets half of one in the morning and at night. Right now he is laying on the LoveSac on top of blankets and covered with 2 blankets but still shivery. Not sure if he is cold or in pain.. One of the blankets is down so I can't imagine he is that cold!

    @TyTysmom I'm just thankful tomorrow is Friday and we had a 2 hour school delay this morning so I was able to get a tiny bit of sleep. Still looking a bit more like a Walking Dead zombie than a human 😂

    Agree with Christine, call Vet and ask if you can give a whole one each time
    or add 1/2 tablet in between am & pm, I think it's pain which will cause shivering.

    And yes, add warmed broth to food and between meals (coconut water is great
    & healthy food), I add 1/2 cup filtered water or broth occasionally every time as
    dogs/cats do not drink enough on their own.

    Keep updates coming, glad he's doing better!

    How much does he weight? My Usko was on Rimadyl, but he got 1 in the morning and 1 in the evening and the vet said that for his weight 2 1/5 is max for one day. Usko weights about 65lbs.

    @bulldogmama ^^^ agree with above, Tyson got 1 full pill twice a day... he may need a little boost on the meds.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    I assume that it's the same for humans and dogs, if so it is the pain killers making King George shiver. I have had so many surgerys in the past and have gone though the same thing shivering as well as feling cold even though the room temperature was warm.
    Hope King George is better very soon!

    Checking in on Y'all, hoping George got meds increased
    and/or his pain is diminished.

    How about you & Hubby, how are y'all holding up?
