Hi, Skippy was neutered on Tuesday (two days ago). His incision looks good but he's not peeing very much. He's eating and drinking fine. He has peed since surgery, so I know he can, but I can't imagine why he's peeing so infrequently. The Elizabethan collar is driving him nuts. He also has to keep his harness on all of the time to keep the E collar on, and he isn't used to wearing it for long periods of time. It's freaking him out but when I take it off he goes right for his incision. He seems to be itchy also. His skin looks fine but kind of dry so maybe it's itchy because they shaved the fur around his private area and his arm (for the IV). I'm trying to keep him quiet but he can't seem to sit still for any length of time. I feel so bad for him!
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to help him feel better and calm down? The vet said to keep him away from his stitches for 10-14 days. I can't imagine torturing him for that long.
