Optimal treatment for your pet requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be critical, especially if your pet does not improve rapidly.

  • Administer all medications as directed. Alert your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your pet.

  • The incision and scrotum should be checked daily for any signs of swelling or discharge. Occasionally blood may ooze into the scrotum postoperatively causing a scrotal hematoma (blood clot). Scrotal hematomas may become quite large and can be painful, but they usually resolve on their own.

  • Routine castrations usually do not require antibiotics, but if there is a significant amount of discharge from the incision or swelling, infection may be present and antibiotics advised.

  • If bone marrow disease was present, a CBC and platelet count should be followed closely looking for improvement in the red and white blood cell counts as well as platelets. Prophylactic antibiotics may need to be given long term, while the white blood cell counts are depressed, in an attempt to decrease the incidence of infection.
