Default Graphic! But PLEASE-I need your opinions!

Ok so the little boy Verres [Vair-ès] my widdle 11mo old is on his second day of recovery from the canine castration yesterday, (neutering!) and I know the doctor tells us to keep an eye out for excessive swelling and redness around his scrotum it could be signs of an infection but idk if I'm being to overly paranoid and its just swelling or irritation from the surgery or does it look like it MIGHT be leading to infection? Opinions? SUGGESTIONS ON CLEANING HIM GENTLE WITHOUT A BATH would really be appreciated by all of us. Name:  ImageUploadedByPG Free1352007068.695402.jpg

You need to go to the vet. It's a weird angle for me, but that doesn't look right. I might just be seeing bruising. The size doesn't seem right either. Good luck with your baby.

Certainly doesn't look anything like my 2 boys' were when they got done, although mine weren't sutured, they were stuck back together with 3M Vet Bond which prevents bacteria from entering. Mine had no redness or bruising whatsoever, you couldn't even tell they'd had a scrotum in the first place so they moreorless just looked like a bitch would, perfectly flat in that region if that makes sense.

I would be heading straight back to the vet ASAP if he was mine, the shouldn't charge you for a follow-up, mine never do.

I would have the vet look at him too. It appears he has some bruising and may be developing a hematoma in his scrotum, where blood pools there. They will probably just say to watch it, but in a worse case scenario, that may need to be drained.

There should be nothing to clean. Don't get the area wet, that could lead to infection. The redness, etc. won't wash off. He was thoroughly washed and disinfected there before the surgery.

Don't let him lick or fuss at the area. If he's bothering it, he may need a cone.

Yes, I'm thinking so too

Thankfully I LOVE our family vet and trust the whole staff and know that they would never charge a follow up, i thought it was extremely professional that the doctor called me yesterday after noon on my cell to see how Verres was doing

Yes! He is scheduled for an early follow up tomorrow morning and so far they've pretty much instructed me to do exactly what you've all kindly suggested keep it dry, clean, look for any signs of discomfort and watch his eating habits. We're thinking its just over swelling as of this point the little guy isn't showing any signs of discomfort and he seems much happier this morning.

Poor baby! I agree, he should see the vet to be sure it isn't serious. A cone might be in order. As much as you want to clean it up, don't mess with it at all until you see the vet, it could be irritating it further.
