Neutering incision

I adopted a non-GSD Saturday. He was neutered in September. There's no fur on the incision site. What would cause this? Thyroid? His appointment with my vet isn't until the 16th.

What would cause what? The darkening of the skin? Lack of fur?

I'm not exactly sure what you're looking at. That's why I ask.

My male GSD had something that looked similar. The vet removed the actual testicles from the scrotum, and the scrotum remained, kind of like a bag of floppy black skin. It took a few months to shrink and now it looks like you would expect a neutered dog to look...just a slight furry bump between his legs.

Does that help?

Or are you seeing something else? If so, please explain it and we'll try and figure it out.

I'm wondering if the lack of fur and darkening of the skin is normal. How long did it take before your boy's fur grew back?
A few least, that's what I remember. After a while, I just kind of stopped noticing.

Maybe someone who's had their dog neutered more recently will recall exactly. I had Camper neutered at 14 months. He's 22 months now, and he's been fully shrunken and fur grown-in for ... let's see... at least a few months now...
