Dog won t lay down after surgery

We had surgery on a 12-year old, male neutered, mixed breed dog, and he's doing well. However, he is still having problems with laying down. It is almost like the nerve system to his leg is damaged somehow, and he has pain in the affected area. His leg seems to go to sleep, and he gets a muscle spasm and jerks his leg to keep it awake. He can't go to sleep or lie down when he's awake. It's only in the evening time, and he's been doing this for almost a week now. If he lays down he will jerk his leg to get up. If he stays in the position for more than a couple of seconds, he will start to go to sleep, but it takes a couple minutes for him to do so. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm a little bit frustrated... We are just so sad to see him act this way.

I had a dog with this same condition, I thought it was a spinal issue, as he was in obvious pain. I had no idea that I was right, the vet told me he would have to do another surgery to correct it.

After surgery, I was told to watch for the behavior in the next couple of days, to see if it subsided. It didn't, it got worse. It was around three days after surgery that the pain got worse.

My advice to you is to get it checked out by a vet right away, I know it's a lot of money to spend, but the cost of not knowing is so much more.

I had to have surgery to put a titanium plate into the bottom of my dog's leg. It's about a month later and I'm happy to say that he is back to his usual self and he's not in any pain. There was pain in the leg, but he had surgery and is back in a healthy, happy state.

The only other thing I can suggest to you is to keep him comfortable, make sure he's eating well and that he's getting plenty of rest. I had mine put under anesthesia, he was awake and he felt more comfortable during the whole thing.

I think the best thing you can do is to get it checked out and see what they tell you.

Thanks for the advice. It's just been one of those weeks when I've been busy, and I really have no one to ask. My husband, brother, and mother have been so helpful, but I guess they don't understand my dilemma, as it's not their lives that are affected.

I'll keep this in mind when I go and see the vet again on Monday.

Thank you again.

A happy ending is the best ending, and I'm so happy my dog will be back to normal, soon.

"What is matter?" asked the Rabbit. "It is nothing but thinking, Mr. `Rabbit,' said Alice. `That's all: but it is a wonderful thing to be able to sit and think!'

I'll have to watch that in my dogs too, but I'm not sure about the surgery. I don't know if that's good or bad, but I'll look into it for you.

As for the leg laying down, I don't know why it's happening. I think it could be related to the leg, as he doesn't seem to care about the leg, but he does care about the leg. When I take him to the vet, they'll see what's going on. Hopefully it's something they can correct without surgery. It is just so odd, and I know we aren't the only ones. We hope we find out it is something we can treat with medication.

We've been following up with the vet as much as we can, but as of now it seems to be a problem. I'm still hopeful it'll correct itself on its own.

I agree with the other two posts. It doesn't sound like a good thing at all, but hopefully it'll correct itself in time.

I just know you're gonna be happy your dog is on the road to recovery

That's great, glad you have the leg under control. I'm sure you are so very happy about your dog.

He's back to normal now, and he doesn't have to wear a cone on his leg anymore, but he still has his arthritis, so we are continuing to work on it.

He was able to go on a walk on Saturday, and I know he really appreciated it, and we really appreciate him. He's a great little dog, and I'm sure he won't let us down.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write all that, I really appreciate it.

I'm going to go with what the other two said. I really don't know of any medication that would be beneficial,
