I have a question about Oakley, my male dog mixed with lhasa apso

He was fixed two days ago and now there's swelling and he is in severe pain with some discharge from the wound, what can we do until we can get him to the vet tommorow?

Hello!

When a wound is open and/or bleeding you should go to a veterinarian as soon as possible as it should be cleaned and put stitches / bandage.

What you can do while waiting to get to the clinic is to put pressure on the wound with possible sterilized material to cut off possible bleeding.
Also, you can clean it with hydrogen peroxide and/or iodine, and prevent your dog from licking the area.

Take him as soon as possible to a veterinary clinic in order to prevent infection and spreading of infected area.

All the best for you and Oakley.
