My mama called the vet lady today because of my hyper'ness. (My pop picked me up after my surgery yesterday, and of course didn't pay attention to the pet lady, nor asked the right questions - like, do I have to come back for a post-op check up!) The vet lady told my mama that it is BAD to be HYPER after surgery! I didn't know I was "hyper," I thought I was being "happy." Oh well.
Mama is stopping by the drug store after work, and will be picking up something called Benadryl. It's a human medicine, but the vet lady said that puppies can take it too. So, dog friends, I'm being drugged - and I have no say in the matter. The vet lady also told my mama that if the Benadryl doesn't work, then she will have to prescribe some Puppy Valium! How am I supposed to continue my puppy play when I am forced to be sleepy?!
But, the good news is that it is OK to go outside for a walk (in this beautiful Northeast Spring weather) - as long as I 1. am able to keep my incision dry, and 2. I don't run. It's going to be a terribly long weekend, I think.
