HELP from Nicaragua!!! Neutering
Hello, a fellow Canuck living for awhile here in Managua Nicaragua. Place where I work has 2 dogs. I volunteered to take them in to get spayed and neutered. They were born in Sept 2011 and are your typical Nicaraguan mutt! Saddest thing here in Nica is the poverty, which brings with it MANY stray, starving dogs!
The girl seemed to weather the sapying no problem today! The male appears to be in a lot more pain. Surgery was around 11:30 and we picked them up around 4 pm!
The girl has peed but the male still has not. He barely even wants to walk! I gave them pain meds. Both have ate a bit, the female has has drank more than the male. He didnt have any water till nearly 7:30 pm. It is now 9:15pm, still not peeing.
Attached is a pic of his swollen "balls" area! I have had males in the past, but not in a good 10 yrs, so not sure if the appearance is normal or not. And luck would have it--tomorrow is a Nica holiday (Labor day)
Hopefully he wil feel better soon. I just recall with my last male (a sheltie) when I brought home he wanted to play fetch. So I was expected this male to be in a lot better shape than he is in now! He does close his eyes and appear to be sleeping. His heart rate is a lot faster than the females!
I do have the vets cell phone, so hopefully he answers it tomorrow if things do not improve!!
