Brittney, I get stressed at the first sign of any discomfort in my pets so I can relate! After an op like that, I can only imagine how sore he is. As others have said, the anesthesia slows down everything in the system and it can take a day or two for everything to be back up to par. Since prior to surgery most pets are held off of food the night before, there's not often much for them to actually poop out; since anything fed after will be digested slowly, too. Good luck and let us know how Cody's doing when you can. =)

Hi All,
Thanks for your advice and get well wishes!
It has been a stressful few days and I haven't had time to get online to give updates.
After I posted that night we went to the vet the next day since he still wasn't going potty. The vet was able to empty his bladder and said that everything else was well. Since then he has been pooping and peeing on his own. He has also been "toe tapping" and putting light pressure on his leg... He seems to be awfully itchy and is bruising quite a bit. He also has a pretty large hot spot on the inside of his leg.

Glad things are a little better for Cody and you, things will get easier each day. Keep an eye on that "hot spot" as it could be a sign of infection, just make sure it doesn't get bigger, hotter or redder. Is Cody on any anti-biotics ?

Thank you!! Cody is on rimadyl, tramadol and was injected with covenia.
His post-op appointment will be toward the end of this week when the stitches might be removed. He is now back eating his regular food. And every few steps will put pressure on his foot.

His bruises have mostly gone away and his swelling has gone way down. I checked where the hot spot today and it isn't nearly as bad as it was. He has improved so much since tues, wed, and thurs. of last week!
