Halla, unlike Odin, came out of her crop full of pep and ready to rumble.
We took along her training treats since we knew she'd be starved, having not eaten for almost 24 hours.
She came home, got her 'clothes' off and proceeded to chase her toys, tear up the bedroom and bite mom.
[this is normal]
She is, however, drinking like a parched fish.
She ate a token bit of her usual food and turned her nose up at the rest, preferring to drink *more* water, instead.
Her belly was so full of water I took away her water bowl.
Is post-op thirst normal?
She had an IV inserted 'just in case' but there's no mention of fluids being given.
She's a big drinker anyway but this concerns me.
Am I, yet again, freaking out for nothing?
As part of her conditional release from the unsupervised overnight stay, we have to be back there again 8AM this morning.
Until then, I'm not going to sleep until I can quite fretting.
[I'm already massively sleep deprived, as it is]
Any thoughts/advice would be hugely appreciated.
