On initial presentation the dog was considered 5% dehydrated and painful. Intra venous fluid therapy was administered to correct the fluid deficit over the following 24 hours and analgesia was administered (methadone 0.1mg/kg IV q4 hours). Lactated ringers was started at 5ml/kg/hr for the first 24 hours and then reduced to 2.5ml/kg/hr (maintenance rates).
Let me know your thoughts from the results I have posted.
