    When my Tank was neutered, we only did the pain meds for the first and second day. Its better that they not have pain meds after that unless absolutely needed. A little pain will hopefully keep them from doing too much and and hurting themselves.

    The Rimadyl can b cut in two so I was thinking half in morning and half at night. That way it will be 48 hrs w no pain.... Is that the usual that vets dispense for a neuter? Been a long time since I went through this so I'm kindA rusty, ALSO, does the skin shrink or will he have saggy scrotal skin?

    How old is you pup? We had Tank neutered at 6 months and his skin has drawn up quite a bit, but it has taken some time.

    Yes..I would cut in half and give half a pil 12 hours part. And 2 to 3 days should be ok. Rimadyl only stays in system for 8 to 12 hours, so if you don't give every 12 hours, he will be hurting when dose wears off. Hope he is resting!

    Hi,I had Bulldozer neutered 3 weeks ago, and Blossom was spayed the week before. When Blossom came home she had 5 syringes of her pain medicine. The medicine was called Metacam, I don't remember the dose, but the vet said it Tate's like honey, so they like it. They got the medicine once every 24 hours, Blossom was on it for 4 days, she was spayed and had stitches, plus we fixed her cherry eye at the same time, but she didn't need the lat dose, and Dozer went home with 5 syringes as well, but only needed it for 3 days. Both of them acted like they never had surgery, trying to jump, and play, vet said keep them quiet , no running, or jumping for 7 days, yeah right, tell that to a bulldog. Lol. The 1st night Blossom whined, I wasn't sure if she was in pain, or just being sucky, so I let her sleep beside me on the couch in the evening, she jumped off the side of the couch, crazy girl, the next day, I took her out for a pee, and she started chasing blowing leaves, and rolled on the ground, she wasn't being quiet. Dozer was fine too after 2 or 3 days as well. As for the skin after being neutered, my vet said it shrivels up after a while, I don't know how long it takes though.
