    He smells of the vets and the operation - it will pass.

    He will smell of the vets for a bit. That's why she's hissing at him. They should settle down in a couple of days :)
    One day I will type a reply faster than Spid :rolleyes:

    It could be a dominance thing due to the change in hormones I suppose?

    It's the smell. He doesn't smell right to her & she may be confused as to who he is.

    I separated mine until the vet smell wore off.
