Chloe is In For Surgery

My dad dropped Chloe off this morning at the surgeon’s office.  I don’t know what time they were doing her surgery, but I’m assuming it’s probably right now (10:30 AM).

We were able to get an anti-anxiety medicine for Chloe for when she’s in the crate recovering (Xanax to be exact).  We worked with her over the weekend, putting her in the crate with treats but she still whined and scratched at the tray in the crate and bit the bars of the crate.  So, on to plan B…Xanax…!

I will update when I hear more about Chloe.  She’s staying at the surgeon’s overnight tonight.

  1. Good Luck Chloe! Elyse, have you thought about getting a thunder coat?..if it's an anxiety problem, they really do seem to work for every dog I've seen. I know it seems like a lot for two weeks, but it might be worth thinking about. It would keep her calm and at the same time discourage licking, while applying a slight pressure to any swollen areas. They are meant to be breathable (I can't personally speak to that) so they should allow the sutures to heal without irritation. Just a thought, but I'm pretty sure the Xanax (or even a couple days on Benadryl) will do the trick! Here's hoping everything comes back ok!
