Today the doc sedated Alera for extensive cleaning on the wound area. Dead skin and scab were removed. The cleaning took not more than half an hour but the sedation last for like 1 hour plus. I waited there for Alera until he regained full consciousness before we went home.
This time pain killer was given instead of just antibiotic. Alera was very hungry when we came back from the vet and he has eaten almost a can of tuna with the cranberry relief.
