The great appetite Teo had that first day home was a little misleading; everything that went down the pie hole came right back up during the night, repeatedly! So we made a trip back to the vet for some anti-emetics to calm the nausea and another med to get his bowels moving.

So, now we are keeping food down and lounging around in a general malaise, I swear the world he sees must be all pink elephants and butterflies.  This morning during a quick walk we came across some fresh moose tracks and he stopped dead in his hop.  In his opioid fueled world I think he was scared the moose would jump out an get him.

Soon enough the fentanyl patches will come off and he should be a little more with it.  At least the swelling seems to be going down and he is sleeping through the night.

    Yes, the meds can really pack a wallop on our pups. Our boy Max was also in a daze when he was on all those meds. Teo’s a strong boy. He’ll figure it out soon enough, and before you know it, he’ll be back to “normal” again!

    Oh Teo I’m sorry to hear that! Well yeah, like Maximutt said, those pain meds can do a doozy on us. They suck and they help and the same time, I don’t get it ya know?

    Hope that today is a better day. Keep us posted.

    Teo’s story is so similar to my Ruger’s story! We went through all of this at the beginning of December, so i feel for you guys! I’ll say prayers for a fast recovery for him! Once they get off of the pain meds they start returing to themselves…Ruger was a complete weirdo when he was on his 🙂
