Help me, freaking out but for nothing maybe?

Recommended Posts

O.K- my question is for people who have male neutered dogs. My dog got neutered 14 days ago. It seems half his sac is shriveled and the other side like before unscathed. I touched it thinking it would be filled with soft fluid, to see of he was really sensitive still or healing well. However it was a little bit bigger than his testicle last month and felt exactly like a testicle he had before (like a hard grape). Sorry, I have felt them. When I got him I thought he was female and observed balls growing over time as he hit 6 months last week. Well anyway.....

How long does swelling last? Shouldn't the hard sacs there be gone with just an empty pouch? If I have to go in all over again and immobilize him while he heals up I will be VERY angry. I'd like to believe it's scar tissue but it is shaped too much like a gonad would be! Rrrr! And despite his neuter he has been getting erections more lately but maybe the testosterone takes a long time to stop going up. I don't know, sorry for a gross post. I will see the vet anyway but your thought on this til' then are appreciated.

It's been about 30 years since I've gotten a dog neutered, so can't help you there. But when horses get gelded, their ball sacks usually swell up like grapefruit. With horses we just hose their balls with water and lighly exercise them.

O.K, that helps a little. It has been 14 days and he is very active. Even when I had to contain him for the first 10 days he was hyper inside. I would feel like a crazy woman busting in asking if they took the other testicle. But you know how we can be about our dogs, a little occupied with their health beyond the norm. It's just that I love him! :oops:

Its natural for swelling to occur :wink: See how he is for the next few days and if you are still concerned, see your vet in case their is fluid retention.

I thought the same thing when they neutered Zeus. I was like the forgot something :o :o But then they just disapered. They'll slowly go away with time ;)

My dog had fluid retention in his testical sacs as well. They never felt hard though. Great that you're taking him the vet to check it out. :)
