    DefaultRedness from being neutered?

    Hunter just got neutered thursday. I have noticed fluid, or blood starting to feel is scrotum back up. It's almost back the size of what his sack was prior to neutering, but the vet said it was normal and it should go back down. The thing I am concerned with is the front part of his sack is red. It looks irritated and just started looking like that overnight. He keeps licking it, but I have no idea what it is. It looks basically like a rash, maybe the trauma to his privates made it turn like this, i dont know? He seems to be fine, other than licking his sack all the time. he still wants to play and I am giving him pain medicine.

    He shouldn't be licking it, that may be irritating it. Didn't the vet send him home with a cone?

    Riley didn't have any redness...he didn't pay much attention to it at all. I'd ask the vet if you can get a cone for him to wear until it heals a little better.

    I would try and ask the vet for a cone too, that will help.

    I've got a cone, but I choose to leave it off when I am here unless he starts licking it a lot.

    Unless you are looking directly at him at all times, he should have the cone on. They can still eat, drink and sleep with it. It is only for a few days.

    If you leave the cone on all the time he will be more accustomed to it and you will have a better outcome. It is not for very long but you can set him back if you let him have access to the incision.

    If he's licking then he needs to wear the cone. It sucks for everyone, but it's much better for the healing process.
    Brody wore his for 3 long weeks, but we got through it.

    Brody was very swollen for weeks and weeks but it's now a teeny furry flap on skin that's barely notiveable.

    All of what you all are saying is correct. He's not really licking the incision, which is at the base of his penis. He's more licking the front part of his scrotum, which is red.
