WELCOME HOME, BECKY She'll still feel pretty low after such major surgery but I'm sure being back with you will help. What are you doing at 4pm? Your post said gavage and I couldn't even guess what that was, Anna. Don't know anything about staples.

Welcome Home Becky! We are so happy you are home! You are such a tough, strong little fighter!

Anna, tramadol is a pretty strong pain medication used after surgery, and it can cause nausea which can make them not want to eat. If she doesnt start to eat within a day or two you could check with the vet to see if there is anything they recommend for nausea. Maybe there is an anti-nausea medication they can give her.
I think that staples are used because of a deeper incision. I don't think they cause any more or less itching than stitches- I think that the itching is from the skin healing. But they usually do have to be removed later.
