Anal gland surgery update
Django had his surgery yesterday. Everything went well. His anal glands were obliterated, impossible to drain which was why he kept getting infections. Had a rough night last night, pain medication was not working. Was able to get a hold of the vet and she prescribed another medication for sedation, rough 7 hours but he finally fell asleep at 10:00 at night on the couch. Snuggled up next to him the entire night, didn't have the heart to move him once he fell asleep. Took pain meds this morning, working but not 100%. He won't walk, i think it's painful due to the stitches on the back end and every time I put him down he runs and then attempts to scoot which is a big NO! Running behind him to stop him from scooting. Hopefully today will be a little better, just want him to sleep all day. His appetite was good and he's taking his meds with turkey so that's a plus. Waiting for call from vet this morning.
