Hey everyone. Koda developed a very small seroma after her spay and the vet thought it would be good to give her some sedatives. we gave her one and dont like how she is reacting. Has anyone used these?

She is very wobbly when she walks, looks drunk. Is this common or did they give her too much? I don't think we will be using them anymore...

Sorry, can't help with that drug as I have never given it to a dog. I'm sure someone will chime in though!

I thought it might have been Tramadol. My boy did not react to that stuff well, although it is tolerated by most dogs well.

I know I have read on here about people's negative opinions regarding ace. I gave ace to Flora when she was recovering from her knee surgery and wanted to jump and play all the time. For us it helped. She was simply drowsy - not woozy or clumsy or anything, just a little sleepy. It kept her calm and helped her heal.

Oh my goodness how did that happen? I have been thinking about giving a sedative to Nyah because she has been super hyper.. jumping constantly, zoomies, chasing the cat etc. :confused: Not sure about that specific pill but in general I heard of that reaction. I'd call your vet just to confirm if it's a normal reaction. Hopefully the little one recovers soon. :)

I would check with your vet to be on the safe side.

Our Frankie was on ACE for thunderstorms and it did work. He would sleep for hours.
I tried everything but only ACE helped.
Lennon got one of his pills that Frankie spit-out and I didn't know until my DH told me what had happened. I took him to the vets and they did all his vitals and kept him for 6 hours. He scared the heck out of us, he was reacting just like your baby. Lennon was about 7 months then.
I am sure Koda will be fine, but I would check with your vet, also ask if you can use half of the dose.
Give Koda a big HUG from us!

We tried calling but they are closed already. She slept for an hour and seems much better. She is walking fine but still a little droopiness of eyes. I think they r now doing what they were supposed to do from the start. We are going to hold off on any more till we talk to the vet about cutting it in half on Monday.

The swelling is SO minimal that I'm not as worried about her activity as each day that goes by it is less likely she will have problems
