It looks like a fluid collection in his scrotal sac. It could be blood or an infection, or just fluid. The vet may want to drain it. It dosen't really look infected. I think it's called a hydrocele.

Sorry I can't help either. When Alex got neutered it did not look like this even tho they had to find the second testicle.

Oh I hope the dear little boy gets better soon. I have two males neutured and have never seen that, but I'm sure your vet will know what to do. Hoping all goes well soon.

Vet went well today, he just tried to bite our vet, Riley hates being touched down there.

Aside from that, he figured out that Riley has 2 INFECTIONS! One in his eye, he kept on rubbing his paws across them and thats what caused it, i tried to tell him no but I cant be responsible for that when im sleeping.

And he also has an infection on the scrotum where he was neutured :(
He got a cone, eye drops, and anti itch pills.
Hes been really mellow today though :( kinda alienated himself from the rest of the family, but hopefully he makes a super fast recovery.

Bless his sweet little heart. Oh he is not alienating from the family, he just doesn't feel himself, and that is understandable. Bless him.

Ahhh poor little guy! I assume they've prescribed antibiotics as well? some can be a bit hard on the tummy so giving with food usually helps ( sometimes some pepcid helps as well....something to discuss with the vet should this become a problem).
Praying for a speedy recovery!
