He managed to eat one as directed this morning and I put 2 of his tramadol inside for pain. I am supposed to be giving him 3 but he was already groggy and kind of out of it so I used my discretion. Hopefully the worst is over. I know he has stitch's in his little nose but you cannot see them because they're black. The stitch's in his palate are self dissolving so I don't have to worry about those. Thanks everyone for being supportive.
    another great hiding tool for pills is vanilla ice cream... just enough to cover the pill(s) since it is cold they just swallow -- I had success with it for 9 yrs!

    Just saw this - good to hear Buddy slept well! My Castor went through the soft palate and nares surgery in November. He stayed over at the hospital but after that didn't get any pain killers, just meds for acid reflux. He threw up a lot after a day or so at home (and couldn't keep the medicine down), so we put him a bland diet of boiled rice and chicken for a week.

    Wishing Buddy a speedy recovery!

    Appreciate all the support everyone, Buddy actually wanted to play last night so he is feeling much better. Last night he was hungry so I took some of the Ceasers wet food and feed him 2 little plastic tins of it buy hand. small little nuggets of it at a time. He did't even cough so I think he is almost ready to go back on his kibble. I will call the vet this morning just to make sure but he isn't even scratching at his nose ( yet) so I don't have to keep that donut around his head (for now) I think the paper work says 10-14 days before we go back and he has them removed. The surgeon did say they made have to mildly sedate him to remove the sutchers in his nose... Thanks everyone

    Missed this post but see our fabulous EBNers did their jobs well, as always!

    You love your baby, we know the feeling, the worry when something's wrong
    or they're recovering from surgery...just about unbearable.

    Grateful all is going so great


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Good to hear he is recovering nicely! We have been lucky too, not having to ever use a cone on any of our pups, they either can not reach or just did not care.

    Happy to hear that Buddy is on the mend! I hate that cone-and so do my dogs!
