Cazzie's woozy

I just pick Caz up from the vet where he was neutered yesterday and he is very wobbly on his legs. The vet's office says that's OK. What are your experiences? I have used this vet for many years and have other pets neutered but this is the first time I have seen one so wobbly! He acts like he doesn't know where he is and is a bit tipsy. He didn't really seem to recognize me at first, but then put his head down on my shoulder. Now he's sleeping. My poor little Cazzie! He did eat and drink a bit when he got home.

I am sorry about Caz being woozy.

Did they give him pain meds before you picked him up?

No pain meds. He doesn't seem to be in pain, just can't stay on his legs.

I think some dogs and cats just don't handle anesthesia as well. I had a cat like that. I went to pick him up after a neuter, and he couldn't stand or focus until the next day. I wouldn't worry unless it continued.

I think I would give them a call back. I wouldn't think he would be woozy if it was done yesterday. Wouldn't you think the anthesetic should have worn off?

Maybe they gave him pain meds and didn't tell you.

I hope Caz is feeling better today! I think it depends on the meds they used. I had to take Lincoln in once where they had to sedate him and he had a hard time coming off of the meds, even after they gave him the "wake up" shot. I was very very worried about him. I brought him home that evening and he just slept straight until 4 am, when he then pooped all over the family room. I think he was disoriented until then. But, it was scary to see him like that. Let us know how Caz is doing ~

This can be very normal with some anesthesia, you just need to let him sleep it off. Make sure he has water and is able to go outside to potty when he needs to. You might have to carry him out at first just until he gets his land legs back. If he isn't back to his normal self by tomorrow than the vet needs to know or if he is worse by 3:00 than you need to take him in. Usually I think they give him something to bring him out of the anesthesia and they may not have given him enough. It is best to just keep an eye on him and let him sleep it off. If he looks in distress at all by later in the day you should call the vet back. You won't believe how quickly they recover from this type of surgery. I never give my dogs pain meds for this type of surgery as they heal quickly.

Hi Suzy...

Sophie was also a bit woozy..I think it's just that it took longer for her little body to shake the anesthesia.

I agree with everyone else.. just keep an eye on him (his appetite may be down now too) and make sure he doesn't hurt himself in this woozy state..
