Does this neuter incisions look infected?

I recently adopted a dog from the local pound. He had to get neutered and since I'm not originally from here I asked them to pick the vet that they knew vest. Anyway, they didn't give me too much instructions but I've been keeping him from licking himself best I can. Any useful tricks to keep a dog from licking himself?

Not sure what else to do, and I'm sorry if this is fine, but as a newish dog owner these things tend to to worry me. Anyway, sorry for any trouble! Thanks!

Looks nice and clean from the photo, though I'm not a vet and the photo might not show important details.

Do you know what date the procedure took place?

An Elizabethan collar will stop the licking.

Here's a generic post op page that could help. https://www.operationpets.org/post_op.php3

It's a good idea to take him to the vet you intend to be your regular. They can answer any questions you have, set up a heartworm prevention prescription, and having a baseline and building a report with the vet will make any further visits go more smoothly.

It took place on the 15th. Yeah, I need to find one down here. I have one I will go to Monday for a heart worm prescription. He's from a city below mine and that city pound had to use a vet in that city, and not being from this region in general I had to say pick the best! Thanks again.

Mens/boys boxer shorts on backwards pull the tail through the fly opening will work also. If you buy an cone make sure it is a couple inches past his nose otherwise it will be useless.
