Great article. Our chi mix was neutered at 5 months old..yesterday. The vet instructions say to limit stairs, no rough play, no running...for 10 to 14 DAYS. Huh? Too long for an energetic puppy. I'm pretty sure those instructions are for SPAYS..which are invasive surgeries. We will, of course, keep him quiet..for the first 5-6 days---as much as possible..and keep him from licking the stitch..(they did provide an e-collar=for when we can't watch him)--which he HATES. Anyway---good info in this article.

I had my 8 year old sh-itzu neutered in August , they did laser surgery which was suppose to be less painful. He has had 2 spots a little above (where his testicles used to be) swollen and infected, I have taken him back to vet around 8 to 10 times he has been on shots, pills and liquids for over 3 months now. He still has seeping and infection running out. they had put staples in him and did not tell me . we just had them removed 6 weeks ago . I want my baby to get better and I don,t know what to do any help or comments welcome.

I had my dog neutered on Sept. 20th. He has been having seizures sense. I am so distraught over this. Do they understand how much these animals mean to us as dog owners. The very reason I did this for my pet, may be the very thing that takes his life. He is a 9 year old miniature Schnauzer!

PLEASE HELP ME, My 7 year old chi was neutered a week ago and had a cyst removed, ever since he has been awful, Growling at me, does not want to go outside, he is eating and drinking, using the bathroom ok. I also think he is allergic to something blooming. His pain meds are matacam and I give him a 1/2 tsp of benedryl. I miss my dog!!! He is my baby, his whole personality has changed. When can I expect him to get back to his sweet loving self?

@Mike, my 3yr old lab had a similar discharge. When we had him neutered, we discovered that his testicles were infected.

To Destynee, all animals are "programmed" to have the urge to mate, of course your dog wants to have puppies, but it is cruel to let your dog have urges and not act on them. Dogs will get the urge to mate 2 times a year, if you are planning to breed them twice a year (and have predetermined homes for the puppies), only then are you fulfilling your dogs desires. If you don't spay or neuter your dog, and don't plan to let them breed twice a year, they will be frustrated and uncomfortable dealing with their raging hormones. Do what is best for your pet. If you can guarantee that they will be fulfilled sexually and mentally, then go ahead and let them breed (it's what their bodies tell them to do). BUT if you cannot provide your dog with opportunities to breed twice a year, and you cannot guarantee good homes for their babies, then do the humane thing, and spay/neuter your

To Diane, usually getting male dogs neutered helps with their aggression and territorial behavior towards other dogs. It is highly recommended by vets.

I think you should do whats best for your dog and not whats best for you.Your dog has a life to live and so do you so why don't you just stop what your doing and remember what I said do whats best for your dog not whats best for you.They might want to have puppies too you know not just you they do too.

I have a Golden Retriever (3 yrs old) and a Beagle (10 years old). The retriever has attacked the beagle on several occasions, and I now have to keep them separated. Neither has been neutered, and I am wondering if that will help with the aggressive behavior?

For the person who's dog crys while peeing by any chance did they insert a catheter in his penis this may be causing it.

I recently adopted a schnuazer 2-3 years of age from a shelter. The dog was then neutered, since coming home he is locks his front paws around my arm or leg and begins dry air humping. Why is this happening and how can I stop this behavor? I am preplexed and it is really bothering me.

I just had my 6 month old male puppy fixed, and since he's been home (3 days) he's peeing every 5-10 mins and sometimes crys while doing so. I can't reach my vet and want to know if i should worry?
