Hi- My name is Christina and my maltipoo, Max was just neutered today- He is a year old and is about 8 lbs. I picked him up about 3 hours ago, and he will not relax ever since. He had an undescended testicle so they had to make 2 incisions. Whenever I try to pick him up to carry him to my bed or somewhere more comfortable, he yelps and tries to run away from me. He freaks out so much that I'm afraid to touch him. Is this pretty common? I'm not sure what I need to do. He's just standing there, looking sleepy and tired... and it's breaking my heart :(

Thanks everyone! I did get the pain killer from the vet, and I've given him one every 12 hours. He seems to be doing just a little bit better than yesterday.. But he still seems very depressed. Most of the time, he is just standing there, staring into space. He won't even respond to me when I call him. I really hope he will go back to old himself soon- He's normally such a hyper/friendly dog who loves to play allll the time. :( I guess I'm definitely freaking out a lot more than I should since I'm a first time dog-owner..
