<< I dont know if she was anesthetized or just given a sedative.  She was 
 groggy several hours later and had trouble walking.  He told me he could 
 her a reversal shot and she would come right out of it (after the xrays).  I 
 declined since I didnt want more drugs in her system.  Maybe I should have 
 taken that.  So what do you think that sounds like?  Sedative or the 
 anethetize? >>

Sounds like he used Domitor/Antisedan (or something like it). It is a 
reversible sedation. It can be conseidered an anesthetic, but when Domitor is 
reversed with the Antisedan, dogs wake up in a matter of minutes. I have 
never seen it given without the reversal, so I do not know what the after 
effects would be. If she is still groggy on Monday, I would take her in and 
let him have a look at her.
