My dog was neutered - he had been lifting his leg to pee and humping but neither were real problems. He was a little groggy for a few days, but after a week we returned to his regular schedule- play groups, etc. Saturdays play group seemed normal, but yesterday (Monday) at play group he stuck close to me and didn't really play that much (which is very unusual). His bathroom schedule is not normal. He lifted his leg and did #2. His "lipstick" has been out when he's just sitting. He just doesn't seem like himself.... does this happen after a recent neuter (he stayed overnight at the vet)?
I have had 2 male dogs neutered...neither one acted any different from the moment they came home...You would never have known anything if it weren't for the sutures..You might want to contact the vet or see if anyone else has had any problems..
A lot of dogs that get neutered don't show a sign of having the operation done. There are those however, that don't feel well afterwards, and if that is the case with your dog, a quick check up is in order, and then just keep him quiet, and home for a week or two more. Just the anaesthetic can have an adverse reaction in the dog, and they get over it, it might just take a little longer. Good luck with him, and give him a big smooch for me.
Watch your dog carefully, take him to the vet, i feel something is going on, and if your not satisfied with the answer of your vet take your dog to another. Hope he feels well be cautious you know your pet better then others.
OREO,my Chihuahua was neutered and had his teeth cleaned yesterday. I had a complete blood panel done last week to make sure there weren't any health conditions that could cause complications during or after surgery. I have assisted in several surgeries and been an observer in many more and my vet is awesome. OREO is very quiet and clingy today and just wants to lie on my lap. He doesn't have much interest in food and won't play with his favorite toy and doesn't want to be around the other dogs and cats. I am keeping him on my lap or crated if I am not able to be in the room to watch him. I don't want to risk him being too active and maybe hurting himself. He is on oral pain medicine. I think some dogs have more of a reaction to surgery than others. I have had many dogs and cats spayed or neutered and most haven't had any problems afterward and acted perfectly normal the next day after the surgery.
