    That looks like a bigger incision than what Jax had. He had stitches, not staples. His fur grew back pretty quickly.

    You can try CBD oil to help keep her calm or get some Trazodone from the vet.

    Sorry if this freaks anyone out. Hopefully 2019 will be better for Stella. She ruptured a disc in her back and had spinal surgery...again. I know it's a big incision but she was very comfortable after surgery. That's a fentanyl patch on her back.
    IVDD is becoming so common in frenchies, it breaks my heart. I am thankful that she is not paralyzed and she was in great hands with her neurologist that performed the emergency surgery, on a Sunday no less.

    All the best wishes for Stella. Ivan, one of my Frenchies, had a similar surgery and, once it healed, was as good as new. I was just very careful about how I picked him up and made sure he didn’t jump on/off furniture very often (easier said than done). I remember having all the staples removed was not fun. Best of luck for you and your doggie family in the new year.

    Wow, poor Stella, 2nd surgery now. I hope she heals up quickly! Fentanyl patch is very potent !! You might need to give her some canned pumpkin and extra fluids mixed with her meals to prevent constipation.

    Poor Stella! I sure hope the second time is the charm for her.

    Thanks for the well wishes. She actually got back to her normal schedule rather quickly...within 2-3 days. She refused to eat in the hospital and lost weight so I fed her smaller more frequent meals when she initially came home to prevent GI issues.
