Day 7 – Lyla was still quite restless and closet obsessed. To relieve her stress I took her cone off as much as possible today and did lots of brushing and cuddling. Soo much grooming. Used her litter box 3x #1 and another firm #2 around 5pm. She finally drank a lot of water around 9pm, The lack of drinking was beginning to concern me. I am hopeful we are going to have a great night tonight now that the Onsior is on its way out of her system! She did have a dose of the blood thinner Clopidogril (one more on fri). And of course Gabapentin.
Day 8 – Lyla had a very good nights rest finally. She hates the cone still ( as if this is every going to change ~ lols) and I try to remove as often as possible, but she still cannot be trusted, today she hissed at me a couple times when i stopped her from touching the stitch area, back to being the Diva I know. This morning Lyla had gabapentin at 9 AM and again at 9 PM, it will be the first day with the every 12 hour dose.
Today she ventured into some of the rest of the house and took a long nap in one of her favorite spots. One week down and one to go….man I can’t wait. She maneuvered well and cautiously getting around other areas of the house. The litter box is still quite a messy ordeal but hoping in time she will adjust.
So this whole time I have had my phone on silent mode as every little thing wakes her up so easily. I printed the schedule from the tripawds book but didn’t quite use it as intended, the med schedule was a bit overwhelming so I used it to log all the med times and then checked them off once completed. To assist with this as I was so tired sometimes I took advantage of “Alexa” and had her set alarms for me.
