Hi I am Dr. Denney. I am currently reviewing your post now. Please give me a few minutes to type my response. Thank you for trusting us with your question.
How is his incision (assuming he was neutered )?
It may be that his abdominal wall is still healing and causing some twinges. This can take some time to heal
How does his incision look? Is it red or inflamed?
Gastrointestinal surgery can sometimes affect nerves in different parts of the body so we may be seeing some small residual effect of this. Does he ever limp on this leg ?
If he was having some slight symptoms before surgery it is also possible that he has a little pinched nerve, but usually these dogs will limp.
