    DefaultNeutered 3 Weeks Ago--Is this normal? (pic)

    Hey sorry, I moved this topic from lab chat and took a picture.
    I took Boo in to be neutered exactly 3 weeks ago today. We went back to the vet to have his stitches removed on Friday, July 6th. His incision looks good and is pretty much heeled, but he seems to have some dark scabs on and around his scrotum. I just noticed these things yesterday. Nothing seems to be hurting him and there's no swelling. Could he just be licking/scratching this area when I'm not around? Did this happen to anyone else or do you think we need to go back to the vet? They're definately scabbs (at first I thought moles) because one just fell off. I'm just concerned that it could be some sort of infection?
    Thanks for your help!
    It's still difficult to see, but I think you can get the general idea.

    It may not be neuter related. I would call and talk to the vet about it and see what they have to say. It doesn't look infected to me.

    HEY! Luke has those too. I was wondering about that. They were neutered 6 weeks ago though. I have just been putting a tea tree oil mixture on the spots. They seem to be going away.

    They don't look infected at all so I would probably just watch them. If they don't go away or you notice any redness I would have them checked.

    Thanks for the advice! I've been watching the past few days and they seem to be clearing up, albiet slowly.

    Could it just be that his skin was irritated when they shaved him?? A dry shave could have resulted in an abrasion there.
