    Exclamation is this normal after op?!

    Meeko was neutered yesterday. I knew he would be a bit swollen and sore but the area looks like hes had some sort of reaction and its gone HUGE .. Like the size of a tennis ball .. Heres some pics. He has his 2day check up tomorrow but if its not supposed to look like that il go back in this afternoon

    Sorry for the rude pics lol ... WARNING: Cover all female bullies eyes im protectin poor Meekos dignity ..they dont need to see this

    It's been so long that I've had a male puppy that I can't remember.

    Just wanted to send a hug
    and let you know I'll pray for Meeko's health
    and no complications. Hate it when we're worried about our babies

    Someone will be here to give advice, soon...hang on, Honey!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Remi had a swollen ball inside one of the stitch sites, but it was no where near that big. I thought perhaps there was a leftover testicle!! But the vet said that it was probably a reaction to the stitches and would go down on its own, and it did.

    Is it hot to the touch?? If yes, call the vet. If not, that is big enough I would call the vet ASAP anyway. In case there is an infection of some sort.

    Cutty had huge swollen balls. Just making sure what I am seeing, that is his balls, not his wee wee? I remember someone had to have them drained or something cuz the swelling was too much.

    We had a foster once who swelled up like that after surgery. The infection was so bad that the sack needed to be removed completely. I'm not saying that to scare you but you really should have the doctor take a look at it.

    For me, her name was Abby

    Ruckus was just neutered in Dec. he had slight swelling that was barely noticeable. I would at least call the vet and see what the say.

    Wow @Twice ... That frightened me more than a little bit!!
    @cali~jenn i think its defo his balls.. He has been doin normal wee wee's today.

    I phoned the vets and tried to describe it to them and they said because he does not seem in any pain or discomfort and his appointment is at 10am tomorrow anyway that he should be ok to wait til the morning. But if he starts to seem uncomfortable or in pain then to take him straight in ... My poor boy :-( xx

    Hi @MeekosMummy We had our 10 month old Dozer neutered 2 weeks ago and didn't look like this. His furry little nuttersac was empty and deflated looking. There was not swelling or redness except for slight pink around the stitches. He also had laser treatment to speed the healing. Poor little Meeko looks swollen and sore to me.

    Bully hugs from afar..
