So Murray's hasn't peed since 6am this morning and appears to have no interest in doing even after taking him to his fave pee spot backyard.

Also, I'm assuming there will be some swelling? His sac seems to be protruding right now, looks like half a walnut shell.

I remember that my dogs didn't want to go for the first day either, I wouldn't worry about it yet.

Yes swelling is normal but keep an eye on it and make sure it goes down and isn't red or "angry" looking.

Also don't feel bad for calling your vet and just letting them know how things are going and making sure that everything is normal. My vet actually would call me for updates so I know they don't mind.

@ESME, can't thank you enough for the great input, fed him some watered down chx broth and some more kibble which he absolutely loved.

I will keep an eye on the swelling and overall condition of the incisions. Hopefully that entire area will look a lot angry tomorrow and in the coming days.

THANK u again for all the great input!!!

I would look into the newborn onesies if he tends to lick. The E collars are no fun.

been using a small little rice bowl for access to water, it work well. kibble has been hand fed.

the incisions look alot less angry today and I can tell he's ready to start charging again!

Need to remind him and myself that R&R is required fot at least another week.

Surprisingly he does not seem to be needing any of the pain meds, no excessive whining or shivering so it appears he's managing the pain well?

Thanks ya'll again for your well wishes!!

I would continue to give him the pain meds. It's easier to stay on top of it then to try and catch up later if that makes any sense.

Keeping him calm for the 7 days is going to be the hardest part but I've learned from a bad experience that I had with Esme that it's very important to make sure they are as inactive as possible for the entire 7 days or 10 depending on how he's healing.

I'll fix the duplicates for you.
