Thank you.

Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. This is something you sometimes see after neutering, this sound like a small area of dermatitis left as a result of the surgery, this is rarely dangerous in any way in my experience and if left alone the chances are it will gradually subside over the next few weeks. That said if you were to apply a small amount of Neosporin to the area twice a day for the next week or so then this could greatly help clear it up. If Woodstock licks the area and swallows a little of the Neosporin then this should not cause him any problem.

2. As I said this sounds like a very minor sort of situation, but in any case I should be available online for you for the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
