Brutus post Neutering

Brutus was neutered on Friday, as well as had 3 baby teeth removed. The vet report was that he did very well. He came home and slept from 5 pm until 7:30 the next morning without eating or peeing. Yesterday he seemed almost back to normal--ate reasonably, played some, ran around, and had a couple lose stools. Today he seemed good this morning, but now he won;t eat at all and prefers to lay around. He vomited a small amount of bile. His incision looks OK and is not sore to the touch. Could this still be from anesthesia?

Do you think it could be from having the teeth removed? Could his gums be bothering him?

We had some male cats neutered once and they were depressed for several days.....they were older though. Valentino did great when he was neutered and he also had some teeth extracted. If Brutus didn't "perk up" in a day or two I would call the vet just to be safe. I suppose dogs are like people in that each one reacts differently to surgery and all that goes along with it!

Vicki--my boys--all over 20--thought Brutus was just depressed. I have no explanation to offer, but tonight he is doing better and has eaten.

I am glad to see he is doing better. Poor baby. Even with anesthesia, it's a lot to have done all at once. Thankfully, the young ones like Brutus bounce back pretty fast. (Even my nearly two-year-old male bounced back super fast after his neuter, but he didn't have teeth pulled too.)

Hugs to Brutus! Maybe Piaget can come over and give him a ruff-n-tumble in a couple of weeks to perk him up. Then again, maybe not. Piaget is much rowdier than his dignified name implies. Pffttt.

I am sorry to read that Brutus threw up~ I hope it's just from having his baby teeth out and not eating much. Hopefully he will be back to normal soon. Give them both big hugs from me!

Paws.....and reflect on what life has given you~

Sorry Brutus threw up. It sounds like he's doing better now though! Maybe he just tried to do too much too soon?

Dora came home from her spay ready to take on the world. I had to pretty much crate her to keep her from running around. My maltese had to have 5 teeth removed and obviously this caused a lot more discomfort. She didnt want to eat either. I gave her baby food on soaked kibble. Her mouth was very sore even with the pain medication.

hugs to your little guy and get better soon,

Dora, Dasher, & Belle's Mommy

Normally any post surgical vomiting is due to the anesthesia. In fact we would keep the dogs over night so we could feed them in the morning and watch for vomiting...but it can last a few days. As long as he is eating and acting normally it should pass quickly. If he is not better 36-48 hours post sx, then I would call the vet.
