My 7mo Bichon x was neutered on mon. He has weed since then but irregularly and today he has only gone once, this morning. He went for a check up today to vets and all healing well - stupidly at the time I did not mention he wasn't peeing a lot and it hadn't been so long then. Should I be concerned? He is not exactly bouncing back after the op but the nurse said this was normal for some dogs. He is still on pain relief btw.

Oh, he hasn't drunk much today either, even though we keep offering. He is eating though.

Sometimes it takes our boy a while to pee after anaesthetic. Maybe give your vet a ring just to reassure yourself?

Pup didn't drink or wee much for 48 hrs after neutering but he did generally bounce back v quickly. I would also be giving the vet a call just to mention it.

Thanks spicy and Mitchell. He did pee this morning but really isn't himself and it's now day 4 post op sad . Vet nurse said some dogs just do take longer to recover but he's so sad and barely moving. I've started to regret having it done...

Aww, you didn't know it wasn't for the best. As the vets are open tomorrow why not call them ... you'll at least speak to your own (hopefully). Good luck, as you say he really should be perking up by now. Good luck.
