Hi,My 10 year old ***** ***** cross dog had a two in one operation on Tuesday for ligament repair and luxating patella correction. She had the dressing removed yesterday and we have an elizabethan collar for her, which seems to be distressing her, she managed to remove it during the noght and licked the wound. Although the wound looks ok she is whining and twitching/jumping which I think is pain/healing process. We have sorted the collar so it won't come off but we are having to leave it on all the time because as soon as we remove it she starts licking the wound again. She is currently having :1 1/2 Carprieve once a day1/2 Noroclav twice a day2 x Tramadol every 8 hours as required (20.00 mg I assume)1 Corvental a day for a bronchial condition.If she is distressed we want to help her, what can we do to help her? We are still carrying her up and down the steps in the garden and not walking her or letting her jump etc We wondered if we could increase the Tramadol which seem to help he settle and sleep a little better? Our vet doesn't open on a Sunday and we don't want her to see anyone else. Please advise?Thanks,Amanda***@******.***
