My 2 year old maltese had surgery for his luxating patella yesterday. He is home now after staying overnight at the vet, and seems like he is in a lot of pain. He won't even stand on this other legs long enough to go to the bathroom. He won't eat or drink anything. He is on two pain medications and an antibiotic. What is the recovery for this surgery like? Will he be in a lot of pain much longer?
How is he doing today? If he is still not eating I would cook him up some chicken and see if he will eat that. The pain meds and antibiotics shouldn't be given on an empty stomach because they can cause stomach upset.
