Sir chewsiph rodontus had to be knocked out so they could do his first ever xrays and dental check up. I was hoping to get some opinions here on what’s good, bad, things to look for, tips...etc ( I trust the vet but I want any information I can get :) )
Everyone has their own ways of handling being drunk but he’s oddly energetic ; He’s spunky anyways but he’s acting a bit wigged out and won’t let me help get the gunk ( eye lube ) wiped away from his eye. Plus he’s just “off” a bit mentally ish...while he’s seemingly fine in motor functions. Maybe having a hard time seeing?
He is okay with some stuff ( eating hay, taking meds, squeaking) but loses interest.
He refuses to acknowledge me for the most part- I’m use to him being upset with me in these cases because this is *totally* my fault :/ even though it was necessary. He’s just never this wigged out about it.
....it’s just a little weirder than usual - I’ll continue reading forms already posted in the meantime. Thankyou!

If it's been less then 24 hours I would just wait. It takes time (I would say 12-24 hours) for all the drugs to be out of his system and that is likely causing him to act weird.
