My dog was neutered on the 12th of feb. his sac has been very swollen for the past two days. Today it has a small tear and he’s dripping blood. What should I do?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name?

Rocky

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Rocky?

He’s still a pup

You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply. Please be patient. This may take a few minutes.

I'm sorry to hear of this with Rocky. You'll need to have his surgeon recheck his work. What you're seeing is usually due to a small bleed +/- post-operative infection that has filled his scrotum with blood which is now leaking through ruptured skin or the original incision site. In most cases the scrotum needs to be opened widely, evacuated, the bleeding vessel ligated or cauterized, and the scrotum closed once again. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
