Bladder stone removed recovery experience

Toby just had a major surgery removed 2 large liver mass and urinary (bladder stones) 8 days ago, is there anyone have experience regarding the recovery?  He is peeing in the house and his bed. He has one big pee, and then will strain and strain after that trying to squeak out another drop or two, it looks like he can't hold is bladder at all.

Dogs seem to recover from surgery much quicker than humans. That said, how long would you be laid up following such invasive surgery? Be patient. A full bladder probably causes him more discomfort than normal. He may not hold it due to pain. Eight days is a substantial amount of time for him to heal. There may be some internal issue that would warrant another look. He could have pulled internal stitches or something. I assume he is on anti-biotics and maybe pain meds. Keep in touch with your vet and be alert for bleeding or other abnormal material in the urine. Prayers for Toby's quick recovery......

Saturday?  That's a long time especially if he is straining.  I hope things start to clear for him soon.

Yeah, my vet just returned my call this morning and have an appointment this Saturday to discuss this issue because we cook from him since he was a puppy.

I would call your vet and ask also. Wynn had a large bladder stone and was on canned food to dissolve it for 30 days. He is now on a special diet dog food with low protein. he's doing great and has no further problems. My thought is maybe since he had surgery his bladder has to still heal some? Hopefully he'll be back to normal soon!

I have no advice other than to call your vet and see what they say.  Prayers that improvement is quick.
