I have a male Pit that I had neutered 3 months ago. He has gained a lot of weight and I know this does happen in some dogs. He's also eating his rubber toys and I'm wondering if he's obstructed since his bowels are not as often.

Welcome to the forum. Dogs should not gain alot of weight after they are neutered. What are you feeding him? How much and how often? How often does he poop a day? How much exercise does he get?

If he is ingesting his rubber toys I would take them away. Does he have a black kong? They are about the most durable for aggressive chewers.

And, btw, we'd love to see pics.
