    Hello, I got my rat neutered about a week ago. I am just wondering if this looks like it is healing okay. I feel like one of the sides is a little more swollen than the other.

    That looks ok for now. Keep an eye on it, most common thing would be an abscess.

    If he's chewing at the incision, he's in pain. Do you have metacam for him? You could also try ibuprofen.
