Customer Question

My dog just got neutered today. His penis is swollen as if he has an erection and his bulbourethral glands are swollen. He is in a lot of pain and I gave him his first dose of Rimadyl. I actually work at the animal hospital but have never had a male dog before. I don't know if this is normal and how long before it goes away. I was planning on bringing him in when I go to work tomorrow if it is still swollen
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Jojo, and he is about 4 and a half
JA: Are you ready to speak with the Veterinarian now?
