My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that Shadow is not feeling well this evening. Based on your description of how he feels, I would strongly consider taking him into the animal emergency room this evening. At a minimum, they can prescribe pain medication for him.

I think it is very strange that a dog would be acting painful in the ribs area after a neuter. If a dog is going to have pain after his neuter, the most common place would be in the scrotum or in the groin area.

Is he having any vomiting or diarrhea? Is he still eating okay? Any labored breathing or coughing?

Do you have any more questions? Does this help?

Good morning. How was your pup's night? Is he still painful or is he feeling better?

Good luck at your vet today, I will be back on-line again late this evening and will check in to see how it went.
