@Hubbub,
They do look very much alike. He is home and so sleepy. The car ride was great and I haven't even put on his ecollar yet. I am just sitting nearby. He is such a good boy. He is taking his oral pain med ( Tramadol 100mg) and it seems to be helping. He didn't have an epidural like Hannah.
He is eating, drinking and peeing, but hasn't had a bowel movement yet. I personally am dreading that! Thanks for your thoughts!

Good thoughts for Cooper to recover quickly and a good report on the biopsy results.

So glad that Cooper is home with you!! Don't be surprised if it takes a few days before the bowel movement. Did they tell you how to manage the pain when he has one? Is it like when a human has hemorrhoid surgery?

So glad that Cooper came thru the surgery well. Sending thoughts and prayers that the report is it was benign and that she heals quickly.

Hi Karen, thanks for checking in on Cooper! As the Vet suggested we put him in our master bathroom at night to try to keep him off the carpet, but within five minutes he was crying. I thought he had to use the bathroom or maybe he was in pain, but no, he just wanted to be closer to his mom and dad. He spent the night in his usual spot at the foot of our bed. He slept with his E-collar on and I didn't hear him try to scoot at all.

He is doing so much better than I imagined he would. He made it through the night on the Tramadol pain free. He is eating and has had one bowel movement so far.

Great news! I'm thrilled he's doing so well so far. I think being able to maintain their routine is so important when you can do it
