Re: [PyrNet-L] sickness after x-ray

<< I was wondering if anyone who has had their dogs OFA'd had the dog get 
 the day after if happened?  My nine month old pup was X-rayed  on Thurs and 
 now she is sick and not moving, or eating.  She is drinking.  Could this be 
 sickness after being partially put under?  I dont have much experience with 
 this.  Any suggestions or causes?  thanks for any help.

Could be from the anesthetic. But usually on OFA's a reversible sedation is 
used, and most dogs are up in minutes, and back to normal in a couple of 
hours. Sometimes dogs with lower metabolism rates can take the sedative 
longer to wear off. If she is extremely lethargic and not eating I would 
probably call the vet, just to be on the safe side.
