Full Version: Haematoma Following Castration

Our poor puppy who is a 9month old setter was castrated last Friday. This morning he was really ill, couldn't pass water, didn't want to move and very hot to touch. We phoned the vet and they said to take him there straight away.

After examination we were told he has a very high temperature, is in extreme pain due to a haematoma in his scrotum following the removal of his testes, and has an infection. He was given ABOs, pain killer and steroid injections (with tablets to take over the next week), and he now has a buster collar on to stop him biting himself, which he has been doing for several days. We asked for a buster collar following the surgery, but were told he was ok and wasn't bothering with his stitches.

He has spent most of the day sitting or laying in front of an electric fan to try to reduce his temperature. He is still very ill, we have to carry him outside, where thankfully he has passed water twice this afternoon.

I have had several dogs castrated over the years, but, have never had this happen.
Has anybody else ever had to deal with this problem following their dog being castrated?

No experience but just wanted to wish you and him all the best hug.gif

I hope he has a good night and is a lot better in the morning hug.gif

metoo.gif what she said and............................we should all insist on collars, how can the vet know what will happen at home?

I would have gone for a collar when you first saw him biting himself a few days ago sad.gif

I would have done only the Vets we go to are about 20miles away, and I am unable to drive due to having a knee replacement, so although we were going today to get one, obviously this 'emergency' happened.
