It’s been 3 days since the surgery. Sebastian is MUCH happier now. He’s acting a lot like his usual self (still grumbly, but that’s normal). I believed everyone that said he would physically get right back up, but emotionally? I wasn’t so sure, especially given his tendency for freak outs.
The vet said he would like Sebastian to stay in the dog crate for two weeks, then he can be in his own room for a while. It kind of sucks that he has to stay locked up, but I guess it’s for the best. At least we can move it around so he is always in the same room as us. He tried to escape the crate a few times on the first day but now he seems to be accepting it. He’s also being super cute! Maybe it’s a “let me out” tactic. He’s rolling around, doing headstands practically, and trying to get belly rubs (successfully). Not sure if the headstands are OK for his incision but whatever. He’s happy! Yay!
