    Hey Orchid! Sorry for long delay, been off in Yosemite!

    Yes, its called a scrotal hematoma and common especially in adult larger breed neuters, post-op. Warm packing it usually helps, keeping him quiet too. Rarely vets have to put them back under anesthesia and do what called a scrotal ablation (remove the sack and flush out the blood) to relieve extreme cases of discomfort. Sorry again for long delay.

    Here's the easy answer: Call the vet that did it and ask.

    I did on the following Monday.

    However, this was originally posted on a Saturday and, knowing that sea-piner is a veterinarian, I thought I could get a quick answer by tagging him. Didn't realize he was on vacation, although he did give me a much more thorough answer than my own vet.

    Some vets offer implants to refill the area to make your dog still look "manly" this is usually an elective service and costs more but maybe it's a part of the neuter package (no pun intended ). Call the vet and ask.

    I know this is a little late, but it was just swelling. I was a veterinary tech for 5 years before kids. We literally remove the entire testicle, nothing is left. The site can swell pretty good for a few days or even weeks afterward, but when that subsides, it will just be a little skin back there. No actual testicles. :)

    We always get ours "fixed" but I guess it was the old fashion way as there was nothing down there, We band out goats and this cuts the circulation off, and they eventually shrink to nothing, young bulls can also be banded too but some prefer to cut them off cattle and have fried mountain oysters for breakfast.
