Neutering and Pain Meds.
Tucker was neutered yesterday and did great (he'll be six months in a week and he weighs 4.9). They gave me three days worth of pain medicine for him. Will he really need it for 3 days? They told me he would be lethargic last evening and he was just as perky as can be. I ended up having to keep him in his play pen or crate when we couldn't hold him to keep him from moving around too much.
How long did you give your little guy the pain meds. (Rimadyl)?
So far he seems to be leaving his stitches alone (the absorbing kind). What a good boy!

I had 3 days worth too but only ended up giving it to them 1 time the next morning after I brought my two home.

Rebel was neutered last week. (6 mos - 3 lbs) I had pain meds for 3 days, but only gave it to him once. I, too, had to either hold him or crate him because he didn't seem to realize anything had happened and his BB's had not dropped, they had to be "dug out".I think you can tell if he needs it and if so, give it to him. If not, good.
