Ernie was sedated for tests yesterdy and has been wimpering, from a low wimper to howl for over an hour. It is 1.30am here.
When I picked him up last night the vet nurse said they had given him Temgsic(sp) instead of Morphine. Told they feel odd after sedation.
Anyone else experienced this. I don't want to wake the vet if it is perfectly normal.
Eric. After I emailed you and said he was staying the night I decided to pick him up.
Chris - Morgan howled and or whined all night after sedation for neutering - think Pam has same problem with Buddy...just keep an eye on it. Hope he's doing better by now!
It could be from the anesthisa. Some dogs are out of it for days afterward. My dogs do not do well with it and sometimes howl when it is wearing off. May also be pain if they did tests on his hips. If they moved them around a lot to get xrays or something he may be uncomfortable. Has he gone to the bathroom since he has come home? He should have probably done both by now, if not maybe he has to go out?
Sorry not to be of much help Chris. You need to move closer so we can help with the black one.
Keep us posted!

Thank you. Man it is so hard hearing this. At first I put his wheat bags on his hips and he settled. he woke me with this almighty howling.
I will relax now and see if i can help him. thank you.
He was sedated not anesthised.
Sorry to be a worry wort. Animals crying is so hard.
They are concerned about his hips so didn't touch them. Need to talk to vet tomorrow as it was vet nurse i spoke to.
They were keeping him over night as he was vomiting again. I decided i would bring him home.
Yep, probably trouble coming out of anasthesia. James Herriot has a couple of funny stories about this....
I think its pretty normal to wimper after anethesia Chris. Good thoughts for Erns
Thanks guys. Back to bed and try and settle him.
He has had anethesthic several times before and never done this.
This time he was sedated not anetheic so the howls are odd.
Hoping all is well with Ernie today Chris.
