Hi! My 6 month old Samoyed was neutered on Thursday. Poor little guy looks good (well, not down there) but has had many episodes of diarrhea since then, including some with blood. Of course, I called the vet, and she had me stop his meloxicam. I had to call back and get tramadol for pain. He's always cried (almost like a baby--really!) when he's been hurt (like if the other dog nips him), and he cried for hours--even in his sleep. If I didn't feel so bad for him, I would've laughed--he snored and whimpered in turn. And he's on a boiled ground beef and rice diet. I'm just still a bit worried because he still is having the runs, but haven't seen any blood since this morning. Any advice? Oh, and he was looking better, so I took him out for a short drive this afternoon. In his e-collar. I didn't have the back window down more than 3 or 4 inches, so he could feel the much loved wind, but somehow, suddenly his head was out the window and the e-collar was blowing down the road. I have no idea how he did it. He needs it, he keeps trying to lick his 'special place' so I folded up a hooded sweatshirt, taped it and tied it around his neck. Seems to be working. Anyone have a better idea??
