What to Expect after Neutering a Dog?

Answer

Things to expect after neutering your dog is he should be able to go home with you the same day as the surgery, he may not be very hungry for a few days and the scrotum will be quite swollen. Any stitches will more than likely be removed in about a week and other than keeping the dog from getting to active too quickly, he should be just fine. Watch out for discharge and excessive discomfort.

Your dog might be a bit lethargic in the first day after surgery, but otherwise he will bounce right back and just be fine. Neutering a male dog is a relatively simple procedure and has no long lasting side effects. He will be his old self in no time.
