    Excellent! This is great news.
    When she starts to wake up she’ll be very thirsty. Do not let her drink more than a few ounces at a time. A couple ozs every hour or so is plenty.
    Too much water at one time can cause her to toss it back up and possibly aspirate. Even with light sedation her digestive tract may take a while to wake up.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    Thank you so much!!!!! You're advice and support mean so much to Joey and I, thank you, thank you, thank you!! Water has been being rationed. I got half a Rimadyl tablet into her around 2pm, it really seems to help. Doc said half twice a day until follow up, BUT maybe won't need it for long........we'll see.

    Oh, why thank you! I just like helping people. Raised by a great mom.

    But yes, Joey’s going to be ok. True anything can happen but overall she never had any serious health issues so she has a good little system plus she’s still our perky little girl. As we say, “ Time will heal”

    Just checking in to see how Joey and you are doing today. I guess she's asleep as it's early morning in your time zone (midday here and Castor is still asleep as he stayed up way past his bed time to watch the news last night).


    Castor is on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/castorthebulldog/

    Do not stray from "Doc" orders. The rimadyl is what will keep her comfy and minimize the potential of that eye bothering her. Stay ahead of possible discomfort by dosing regularly. You don't want her to start pawing at it or rubbing it against something; floor, furniture, wall, you.

    Will do....understood, thank you! Twice per day it is

    QUESTION, she has not had a BM since Tuesday. She has been eating great since yesterday morning, her kibble, a smidge of pumpkin (not something she normally gets), and a dusting of cheese. Is the delayed BM normal?

    Hi there! We both got a wonderful, restful night sleep. She ate as normal this morning and even played some last evening which made me very happy!! Joey will normally sleep in well past me but the last few days she is ready to get out of bed when I get up (early). Hope the news did not scare Castor.....I had to turn it off.

    Hi there, thank you! I will stop the pumpkin. I looked and Rimadyl (on for pain until Tuesday) could also cause constipation but can also cause loose stools, so.......probably like you say, the anesthesia. She's drinking as normal, maybe more play time today if she wants
