Q. Our 5 year old dog Eddie went to the vets yesterday as we he had a bigslice In his side. Since bringing him home he hasn't urinated or pood, is he ok?

A. I presume he was sedated for repair and this would not be uncommon for up to 48hours. You should contact the clinic for a post op check if he is not eating or drinking as usual. Some canned pumpkin can help to promote normal bowel movements
A. If he has not urinated in twenty-four hours, something is not right. I would report this to your vet right away and see if you can take him in now.
