Your vet should be able to ease your concerns as far as what to expect and what to do to make your dog's life more comfortable while he's healing. Pill Pockets are a great way to disguise pills as treats and come in four flavors- hickory smoke (bbq), chicken, duck (allergy) and peanut butter. There are small and big size pockets available depending on the size of the pills that your dog needs to take post-surgery. Check the wound area daily for signs of swelling or infection, and if you see any, bring him in for a look. Hope Scruffy is back to feeling better and moving around pain-free very soon! ^_^
