Customer Question

We have just gotten a 3 yr old male pit bull neutered and it looks like everything is still intact. Is that normal?

Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are worried about your dog. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

When we neuter dogs that are over a year or so, with a fully developed scrotum, it is not unsual for a blood clot to form and fill up the scrotum, or for healing fluid called serum to fill the scrotum. This will go away after a few days or so.

Another possibility is that it could be an infection, but that is less likely. If he is eating and drinking, and does not have a fever, it is probably a blood clot or serum.

It is not unusual for this to happen, and it will get better. If you are worried, the veterinarian who did the surgery should have a look at him.

Let me know what else I can answer or help with. Rebecca
