      Turbo got neutered on Wednesday and upon picking him up from the vet we noticed he had pulled some of his chest fur, assuming from stress. He is now back to his normal self, super happy, but occasionally we have seen him pulling at that same spot. Any thoughts on what this might be because of????

      Did you report this to the vet? It can be a sign of pain or something internally is happening from the surgical site that needs assessment and needs to be addressed. Never hesitate to call your vet to report behaviors you notice after a procedure.

      Potentially separately is that he is molting in that area naturally so fur coming off in abundance can be from that… is that a possibility?

      I had a fur puller. He would pull his fur any time he was stressed. So the vet could be right. But I do agree with Wick. It could be a sign of pain too, so you want to make sure to rule that out first.
