Pancho was neutered on Tuesday, spent the night at the vet, and I picked him up Wednesday morning. He had an undescended testicle that they had to look for and now has the most gruesome looking 8-10 inch stitched up cut on his stomach with significant bruising. They gave me enough pain medication for 1 and a half days (they gave him some the morning i picked him up so all in that would be 3 days of pain medicine.
I wish I had a picture of the incision site and bruising. I was so busy talking to the vet when they discharged him that i didn't flip him over to look at it. When i got home I flipped him over and nearly fainted.
Am I crazy? If this surgery was done on a person they'd be taking narcotic pain killers for at least 2 weeks. My vet is fantastic and she did the surgery but a different person discharged him. could this be an oversight?
Has anyone else experienced this type of surgery with their corgi or something pretty invasive that required only a small amount of pain killers?
Thanks for your help.
