Amy had a back molar taken out at 9.5 y/o...it was huge with 4 long angled roots.
Wouldn't pull out, till it was cut in half...surgery lasted 1.75 hours with other stuff, while under.
After the operation, her core temperature was down -6 degrees, and we covered her with blankets, which helped.
Our girl was not crate trained, so I insisted her tooth removal would be first one scheduled in the morning, because it was my intention to sit at Vets with her...coming out of anesthesia, as it wore off...after several hours, but her back legs still not working, all doped up.
Vet knew she was in good hands, so we took her home, late the same day, using a towel under her belly, to walk out to the car & up the house steps. assisted.
At home, wrapped Amy up completely on the leather couch, helping her organs regain temp.
In the middle of the night, she got off the couch by herself and kissed Dad sleeping on the other end.
Out for potty at 3:30 am, back on the couch till 7...then Mom made her oatmeal porridge.
Start of day2, she was pretty much herself.
Best wishes, for your girl !!
