Thanks everyone! My poor baby. He's on 3 different painkillers. One of them is extremely strong. I've heard its a stronger opiate than heroin. Needless to say he's been sleeping all night. Recovery should be around 6 weeks because where the bone was removed has to have time to grow scar tissue and fuse the gap together. Of course they had to shave his hind quarter which is pretty funny looking. I can't wait until he's back in good health since he's usually full of energy. And poor toby misses his playmate. Thankfully he had a wonderful surgeon who actually teaches at Texas A&M which has the best veterinary program in texas. My hank has been such a trooper through all of this, he's such a great dog!
