Default Post Neuter Question

Willy is a 8 month SPOO who was neutered yesterday. I had it done by a very reputable QC Animal Welfare organization. After getting him home last night I had my first good look at the incision site. The suturing looked great and was well done. My question, I believe the testacle sac is still there. Will this shrink over time and disappear? Willy seems to be doing well this morning and slowly adjusting to the cone around his neck.

Yes, it will eventually shrink to almost nothing!

Thank you. My daughter had 2 Golden Retrievers and never noticed this on either of them. Also, she never had to deal with the cone. I had Willy's cone off several times now to see if he would bother his sutures; he did, so needless to say the cone is back on. He's seems to be adjusting to it.

Thanks for the question, my 8 month old is going in on Tuesday. He seems to know something is up. The vet called yesterday and left a message with pre-op instructions. Max sat there and listened to it and tilted his head sideways, like what??

I was very apprehensive about dealing with Willy post op. I was afraid that he wouldn't cooperate by jumping into my cars back seat, then out to climb stairs into my house. I attempted to take him on the grass before going in; didn't go too well. Because Willy counter-surfed and ate a half stick of butter shortly before leaving the house, his operation was held off until 2pm. I picked him up at 4:30pm and he was still disoriented from the anesthesia, having the cone on his head and his hind quarters not feeling normal. Within the hour after being home he walked to the door and i assisted him out. He peed for what seemed like 10 minutes. He must have been holding it all day. He does have a large bladder. I finally put him, cone & all, into his cage and covered it with a blanket. He settled down and woke me at 4:30am. I let him out and everything was working as it should. Even though he wasn't whining, I gave him a pain pill anyway with his breakfast. He seems back to normal now at 9:am; even seems to accept the cone. I did break the rules slightly. I gave Willy 1/2 cup kibble along with water last night. He hadn't eaten since the night before.

One more thing.......if you have other dogs, the cone will frighten them. My two chihuahuas are still barking at Willy. I had to put one of my barkers in her cage with a blanket over it to calm her down. Covering the cage really works to get your dog to settle down. Good luck with your experience too.

Well Rhett is at the vet tonight getting ready to be neutered. The drama of him being gone has upset the entire house.. DH says I have "stolen his manliness ". Little miss is upset over her buddy being gone and not having any one to read to... And Rhett went to the vet with the attitude of going on a grand adventure. I can't win for losing. Such is the life of the poodle mommy

Good luck with Rhett in his recovery. Although my 2 chihuahuas give Willy a hard time, I think they miss having him around and wondering why I left the house with him yesterday and returned home without him. They seem too quiet. Willy was having a barium test done and will take a final X-ray this morning before I pick him up. An X-ray showed he may have swallowed rocks. They induced vomiting and brought up bone but they have to make sure that's all thats in there.

The vet called about Rhett.. She said he came thru just fine. Microchipped and a lot of his gorilla hair removed from his ears. It was a major relief to hear that. She also said he truly fits his name. He has every lady in the place in love with him. Such a wonderful personality and such wonderful manners.

Here's hoping his recovery is uneventful.
