How do I get my dog outside safely to potty after being neutered?

This sounds silly, but I know that stairs are a no no for dogs after being neutered. But we have two steps to get in and out of our home for our dog to go potty. How do I get him outside without hurting his stitches after surgery? I’ve also read that he shouldn’t be carried.

Talk to your vet or wherever you had the neutering done. My dog had no issues at all and I have 14 stairs. I think the caution about stitches is more important for female animals after spaying. But, again, I suggest you speak with your vet's office.

Add: As I recall, my neighbor's dog, who was neutered on the same day and place as mine had to wear a cone because he was licking the stitches. Also, he had plenty of stairs for his daily potty breaks. We live in an urban area. Lots of stairs.
