My 6 yr husky was nueter on Friday. Saturday night and Sunday he was in pain. I took him to ER and got pain medicine. It does not seem to help. Funny thing is when I put his leach on he is ready to go. Should I be concern since he is still in a lot of pain and is not drinking water.

Hi, I just had my German Sheprador neutered last night (he's 10 months old). I am just needing to know if his testicle sack is supposed to swell up at all. It's not like it's back to normal or anything, but it was flat when we picked him up, and now it's puffy. He's acting normally, eating well, and the incision seems fine. If anyone has experience or any information, I would really appreciate it. The office is closed until Monday, and I would like to avoid taking him in unless I have to.

I came across this article wanting a better understanding of this procedure as my beautiful three year old champion blue shar pei is currently having this done. The decision was made to have him neutered to prevent unwanted behaviors and health problems in the future. I am so glad he is now mature and ready to go on to obedience work and other activities that were not open to him as an unaltered male. I would never ever spay or neuter a young puppy. They must reach maturity and good socialization and training is crucial to having a well behaved pet anyway. We never had a single problem with our guy and I am only hoping he adjusts quickly to his new life without his "manhood".

For the health of the DOG neutering should be put off
until
the are older & fully mature!! I have Giant Schnauzers & do not spay before

5 years old. Be Responsible for your dog & their health. Unplanned litters don't have to happen.

Look at the recent studies on neutering dogs less then a year old before you even think about doing it. This article is very misleading. People I don't care what your vet says look at the research.

I will never have my dog spayed or neutered till they have reached at least one year old or more. There is research being done on this and the findings are not good. Early spaying and neutering can lead to a lot of health problems. One is Osteosarcoma. We lost our beautiful Golden to Osteosarcoma. She was only four years old and we had her spayed at 6 months. I read everything I can on this and my dogs have to be fully grown. If you ever lost a beloved Pet to Osteosarcoma, you too would wait.

First of all I would never go to the Humane Society of the United States or the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals for advice on neutering. There have been many articles in scientific journals decrying the practice of early neutering, before the dog has finished growing and gotten past puberty. Many of the activities that neutering supposedly halts can be corrected by proper training and a secure fence. I would not neuter an animal until 1.5 and 2 years of age. This way they are finished growing and have gained sexual maturity. Train , don't complain.

What are the benefits of neutering my
dog?

Helps prevent unwanted
litters.
- Proper care and responsibility of your pet will prevent unwanted
litters.

Decreases your dogs chance of developing testicular cancer, prostate disease and
infections.
-Yes, in the same way that removing your leg will decrease the chance of leg cancer... As far as infection goes, don't tell me an invasive surgery has less of a chance of infection than a healthy set of testicles or in the case of a female, NOT cutting into the body to remove the
ovaries.

Decreases your dogs chance of escaping while in search of a
mate
-Again, be responsible and proactive, not
lazy.

Decreases the incidence of negative behaviors such howling, inappropriate urination, territoriality and
aggression
-Once again, proper behaviour training and care limits all of this without mangling your pet. If you cannot be responsible enough to own an animal without altering it, perhaps it is time to consider another pet or not one at all. (BTW, this should go without saying to those who want to remove the dog's ability to bark, or a cat's claws, etc.)

Great article. Our chi mix was neutered at 5 months old..yesterday. The vet instructions say to limit activity.......no 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.

Our boxer pup ( 6 months) was neutered on a
Monday.
He was "normal" in actions on that Monday and
Tuesday.
However, on Wednesday he was extremely inactive and cried if you touched his limbs. He did eat and drink normally. Some of the internet info
suggests
bone /joint issues due to neutering." bones should be fully
developed"
prior to doing this type of surgery. Any input , currently on pain killers.

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!

@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
dog.

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