Kristen Alderson (ex-Kiki, GENERAL HOSPITAL) took her dog, Mickey, to the vet to be neutered and shared her experience dealing with her poor pup's recovery on social media!
“It’s Mickey’s first night after getting neutered,” she reported. “He’s on Tramadol. It’s not making him tired. He’s standing and staring at things.”
Then Alderson revealed that he “keeps closing his eyes like he’s tried but won’t lay down. I don’t know how to help him.”

“Now he’s having a stare-off with himself,” she added later, posting a pic of Mickey looking at his reflection. “He seems like he’s high. I know he’s drugged up but I don’t like that he won’t lay down.”

Luckily Alderson eventually discovered a way to get Mickey to lay down and rest. “Finally got him to roll over and rubbed his chest ’til he fell asleep. Poor baby.”

Unfortunately for his beleaguered parent, the pooch’s nap didn’t last long!
And....he's up again. Standing and staring.🙈 normal dogs would be passed out from this stuff. Not Mickey🙄😆— Kristen Alderson (@krisalderson) October 13, 2016
Alderson hasn’t posted any further updates on Mickey’s condition, so hopefully that means he’s adjusted to his cone and the medication and is doing much better now! We look forward to seeing more adorable pics of the little baby once he’s on the mend!
