Rusty, my male dog boxer, has swelling in the testicles

He was neutered Friday and everything had been going great. Then this morning we woke up to his scrotum being EXTREMELY swollen, and bright red and dark purple color. And I’m worrying my self to death. He still acts the same, but you can tell it’s irritating him. It’s so Sunday so no vet is open and I just really need to know if I should be extremely worried or not. This dog is my child, PLEASE help me!

Hello!

Take him as soon as possible to a veterinary clinic in order to prevent the infection and spreading of infected area.
It is possible your dog was licking the area and it got infected. It is treatable with antibiotics (if infection is confirmed) and anti-inflammatory medicine.

As it is very painful area, make sure to prevent him from licking it and take him to your veterinarian as soon as possible.

All the best for you and Rusty.
