My 2 yr old cavapoo is having patella luxation surgery next week. I was wondering if anyone could give me advise on what to do with him the night of the surgery? His vet closes at 7:30pm and noone returns until 7:30am the next morning. I don't want to leave him alone all night after surgery. Is it safe to take him home, or should I transfer to the er for the night?
I insisted that my schnauzer come home that night for the same reason, no one would be there all night.. The surgeon said she could come home when I offered to bring her back the next morning for a pain shot. My girl Trixi had bilateral surgery on Monday (1/28) She is doing well. I was going to post a picture but I don't know how.
