Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.|
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

|Subject: Depressed after Neuter? Tue Nov 19, 2013 5:26 am|| |
So Orion got neutered about 10 days ago and as expected the first day he was groggy, then the next few days he was full of zoomies, destroying everything he could get away with and not understanding at all why I wouldn't take him walkies. Then something odd happened, the last few days he has gone a bit downhill, he got the all clear to start walking etc again but now he doesn't want to. I have to drag him out the door to go then he just plods along totally uninterested, he won't play games and he isn't even chasing the cat. Tonight we had obedience class and normally he is the class clown/terror but tonight... nothing. I dropped the leash and walked away, he just lay down and stared at me. A mini schauzer came up and jumped all over him and he just ignored it (he is normally very very small dog reactive and has always treated them like real live squeaky toys).
He is eating normally, his temperature is normal, his stools are normal, I gave him a full rub down to check for sore spots - nothing.
Honestly I am just at a loss, does anyone have any ideas? Is this normal for post neuter pets? Has it happened to anyone else's dog?

This didnt happen to koda. But was orion on any meds after the neuter? If he was im wondering if maybe once u stopped the meds maybe he still a little sore or just a different reaction cause you arent giving him the meds anymore.. Idk just a guess.. Have u called ur vet and asked?

I would definitely run it by your vet to see what they say. When Keeara got spayed not too long ago, a few days after her surgery we think she became depressed..she wouldn't do anything, just layed there and wouldn't even eat which was not like her at all! The second I was able to let her play again she was right back to normal though.
