Can anesthesia/neuter cause diarrhea?
Toby's been a handful today. His morning stool was really soft, but not watery, so I wasn't too concerned.
He had started whimpering though in addition to being restless today, so I called the vet because I thought he might be in pain. They told me to increase his pain medication to 3x a day from 2x. The incision isn't red and in less swollen than when he came home yesterday, so they didn't think there was a problem.
Within 30 minutes of hanging up, I took him out and he had diarrhea. There wasn't much, but he just went spot to spot to do it. Sorry for the nasty details.
Is this normal for him to have diarrhea? I'm hesitant to call the vet right back because I think the assistant had to interrupt him twice to ask questions for me.
Thanks in advance!
