I think a lot of what you were seeing yesterday was the after effects of the anesthesia, etc. It really drags them down. Hopefully today will be better for her as it works its way out of her system. Takes a good 24 hours or longer for that to happen.
Both Tiny and Toby have had drains. They keep it from forming a big lump of fluid. They're not anything to be concerned about, although they can be a bit messy. It's kinda gross when they pull it out (don't watch!).
Tramadol can be given in various doses, so if you think she's still in pain today, I'd ask the vet about upping the dose. My Tiny, at 57 pounds, can take up to 4 of the 50 mg ones per day (she only takes one, but the vet said up to 4 is okay), so there's quite a range on the doses.
Poor baby. Give her some extra loving from me!
