weakened bladder after sterilization

we recently had our male puppy sterilized at 5 and a half months. They were only able to locate one testicle which they removed and said we''ll need to take him back monthly to check for the other one. The stitches were removed over a week ago, but he seems to have a weakened bladder. A couple times he has started peeing and he himself has even realised he is doing so. Is it possible that they damaged something when operating? Will the damage be permanent? And is there anything we can do to assist? Thanks

Hi Vivian

Sorry to here of you dilema.
It is difficult to say if there is damage due to the surgery or if it is a result of lack of testerone or due to fear.
I find it pointless removing only one testicle. Why did you not wait until the puppy was older as this means that your puppy will have to undergo another general anaesthetic.
Please visit your vet and enquire about the surgery.

Kind regards
