My dog's testicles were cut during his grooming visit last Monday (4/4/16). I can tell he's in a lot of pain from the cut, based on his behavior
since then. I read that pain relievers with NSAID were OK to give dogs, so I gave him 2-3 ml of liquid ibuprofen for children 2-3 times a day Wednesday through Friday, before reading several other post that said ibuprofen is a NO NO for dogs. My dog is a 14 month-old Snorkie, and weighs approximately 15lbs. Today is Monday (4/11/16), and he hasn't had a bowel movement since Saturday (4.9.16). He went a little more than a day without eating mid week of last week, but is eating and drinking pretty close to normal now. I've been using generic Neosprene on the cut area, but am not sure how much harm I've done with the ibuprofen. Please help.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is your dog bleeding
Customer: I haven't seen any bleeding. I just see the cut area on the bottom left, and what looks like razor burn on the top area of his testicles.
JA: What is the dog's name?
Customer: Buddy Lee.
JA: Anything else I can tell the Veterinarian before I connect you two?
Customer: He went through a similar issue on his first grooming visit last year, so I know now that his testicle area is very sensitive. He didn't have a cut last time around, but we went through a similar episode then.
