Post Need Feedback

Chewie just got neutered yesterday and while doing my research in taking care of him, I came upon this site. I have obviously joined and I'm looking for some help on him.

So after getting neutered, he was very weak and slept the remainder of the day. Today he is very active and wants to play mostly. Gave him his pain killers and a bit less than his regular meal. He's still showing his territorial side by being extra alert and barking. He also ran up the stairs earlier. Right now he is sleeping in his crate. I'm thinking of keeping him confined in my room mostly for the next day or two to decrease the chance of swelling or infections. Any suggestions or comments? Your experience?

Im also going back to school this Monday from 7am-2 30pm. We haven't left him alone for more than 3 hours since he is only six months.
We are planning on my sister coming home in between her classes to take him out to do his business and long walks will be my job after school.
I am still hesitant in leaving him since he is MY first dog and he has just gotten neutered. Comments, suggestions?

Welcome to the forum!

sound like hes doing great!

A neuter is a pretty minor surgery, all my male animals have never paid any attention to the stitches or acted like anything changed. In fact I've never heard of pain killers being given for a neuter, but are usually given for a spay, as its a more invasive/painful surgery.

The chances of it getting infected/swelling are pretty slim unless you see him chewing on it It should be 100% healed in ten days or less.

What kind of dog is he?

Thank you for the reply. He is taking quite a lot of attention to the area so I'm really paying attention to him.
He's a goldendoodle and in my opinion he has taken more poodle genetics.

Gotcha... It you are familiar with the bitter apple spray you can spray it on your finger and rub it on the area around the incision (not on it, as its alcohol based and will sting) or just use an old fashion E collar, tho my dogs have always managed to get those off.

A six month old GD...lol...you must have your hands full

Tried the E collar and same result. He hated it. Forgot about bitter apple, I'll probably pick some up later. Thanks so much.
And yes, I do. Not much help from the family members either.

My dog was given rimadyl for his neuter, he also licked at his incision here and there, as long as your dog is not obsessively licking it, say he sits down and licks at it for a second then gets up, that is ok just do what you are doing and keep an eye on it.
