Ever seen a rottweiler’s response to pre-surgery meds?

Sarge, the adorable rottweiler, might just be your first.

A video of his chilled-out reaction to his pre-surgery medication is spreading joy all over the internet this week.

Sarge’s owner, using the username Sarge.and.tyne, shared the delightful video on TikTok.

It shows Sarge in a thoroughly relaxed state, appearing to sport a big grin as he gets a soothing neck rub from his owner.

“When the pre-meds for your surgery kick in,” the video caption quips.

Adding a reassuring update, Sarge’s owner also said, “Sargey had surgery today. All went well, he’s home and he’s still high as a kite.”


According to VCA Animal Hospitals, dogs, like us humans, need anesthesia for surgery to minimize pain.

Though rare, adverse reactions can occur.

“However, many experts estimate the risk of anesthetic death is lower than the risk of driving to and from the hospital to have the anesthetic procedure,” says the VCA website.

The video of Sarge, grinning and blissed out, swiftly garnered attention on TikTok, racking up over 2.3 million views and 257,900 likes.

Many users couldn’t resist chiming in with amusing and loving comments about Sarge’s blissed-out demeanor.


“My boi turned into a staffie,” joked one user named Endhawksz.

Another, Helmet871, noted, “I’m a happy, happy dog, I’m just a happy happy happy happy happy dog.”

Quetzal couldn’t resist quipping, “After that, I don’t think he knew where he was any more.”

One user, Alejandra Vargas, was especially taken with Sarge’s nose twitch: “The little nose twitch got me! He’s so cute.”

Meanwhile, Anna summed up everyone’s sentiments, commenting, “The eyes starting to glaze and then the grin… give him all the loves.”
