|Please help us! My dog was neutered on Monday, December 17, 2007. He is a rescue pet from the pound. He's about 6-8 months old, not quite sure. Starting last night, I noticed he was acting like he wasn't feeling too well. Everytime I took him for a walk, he would walk a few steps then sit down. I've been keeping a close eye on his incision site, and it's looked good. He has tried licking, but I have stopped him from doing it so much that I think he's scared to now. My parents told me that if they lick, it can cause infection, so I've been very careful with that. He is an indoor dog, so his incision hasn't been dirty or anything. This afternoon, (Sunday, Dec 23), I noticed his scrotum is VERY swollen. I made him lay down and I lightly touched the area to see how it felt. It was very firm and soon as I touched it, he cried. It's about 3x bigger than it was yesterday and seems to have a little puss coming from the incision now. I called the vet, but with it being the Sunday before Christmas, I know I won't hear back today. I plan on calling first thing in the morning but was curious to see if anyone had any help to offer. Has this ever happened to anyone else? What should I do in the meantime while I wait to hear from the vet? I'm very worried about him...and I know he won't let me touch it too much. Should I be held responsible for any vet fees? I'm new to this, and it's kind of scary! Please help us!
