Our puppy seems to be in pain four days after neutering. He was quite active the day after. Will he be okay, or do we need to do something?

Answer

It's always best to consult with the vet if something doesn't seem right. Your vet should have sent your dog home with pain medications, perhaps these were not provided to you. If you give your vet a call, they may provide them for your dog. However, with the holidays this can be challenging. There is also a chance that the pain may not be directly related to the surgery if he was active, and perhaps he injured himself.
