I didn't get on the boards at all yesterday - work was too crazy. Monday night we went out to dinner to celebrate our oldest DD passing her State boards (esthitician - I think I spelled that wrong). Anyway, when we got home I took his pain patch off and then let everybody out in the yard. When he was done, I put Buster back in the playpen. I remembered that he had not had his Rimadyl yet so I went to get it. When I came back he was flat out on his side panting heavily and pooping. I got him cleaned up and called the vet. Luckily our vet is open 24/7. They said it sounded like he was in pain and to give him the Rimadyl, and then another codeine at midnight. I ended up pushing the Rimadyl down because he made no effort to chew. He continued pooping. I told my husband I was taking him in now. We wrapped him in a towel and took off. The vet is only about 5 min from our house. When we got there the assistant took him from me to get his vitals and he threw up. The girl behind the desk said it was white and foamy and I looked and said no it's cottage cheese (his dinner). Apparently he continued throwing up in the back. Turns out to be a reaction to the codeine. I am glad I did not wait and then give him another one. He ended up staying the night and I picked him up yesterday morning. He was so eager to go home that he was even putting weight on the surgery side to go a little faster. I took off his cone in the car and when we got home he went right into his pen and took a big drink of water - YAY - and then a big nap. I put his inflatible collar back on and I saw him drink more water last night. So just a brief scare and a few more gray hairs for Mom.
