<< 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.
