    Default One testicle...!!! When to neuter...???

    My jackson has one testicle, we knew this on his first vet visit, jan. 2. The vet said that its located somewhere in his stomach....the vet said it will be extra $$ to remove the one testicle and other in his belly...
    Was at the vets office...today for his last shot and vet told me it hasnt dropped yet and it's going to be $500.00 because they have to do abdominal surgery to get other one out....😳
    So called everyone and their mother to see if can maybe get done at a less expensive price...
    Paws-$200.00
    Oak park shelter-$50.00 (don't neuter bulldogs)
    Anti Cruelty-$70.00 (don't neuter bulldogs)
    Animal welfare league-$300.00
    But lady said here to maybe wait until he is about 9months-it may drop AND why make him go thro a intensive surgery if not needed....

    I appreciated her concern and advice on to wait...other places were like yea yea yea do it! But no one said NO...

    So I was wondering of anyone has had experience with this and if anyone knows anything different that what I'm being told...?
    Wait? Don't wait....? 😳🐶

    @Jzepeda87 I dont have a male bully, but I think it would be ok for you to wait a little longer and see if it drops.I agree that it sounds like very intrusive surgery and we know that our babies are very sensitive to anesthesia. I woulod say wait and see if it drops.

    Yes! Jakes didn't drop until he was about 7 months! I'd wait until he was at least a year...to give it time to drop. But @Davidh might have better info for you. Years ago we had a non bully rescue dog that came into our family at a guesstimated age of 8. He was unneutered and one of his testiles had never dropped. When we had him neutered it was taken out.

    Jameson had one that didnt drop. I neutered him around six to seven months but i only paid about 170 or so for him. Friends moms vet did it. The vet that we were going to at the time wanted to charge 700 to 800 dollars. This place was top of the line. I couldnt pull that in any way shape or form. U can definaty wait to see if it drops. It is just important that if it doenst to get it removed due to the cancer risk

    @Jzepeda87 I would wait until he is at least a year old. Our Bully vet suggest you wait until they are 18 months old before neutering them. So it may drop in a few months.

    My poor Mojo was neutered at 8 weeks due to non dropped testicles. Now Im finding out he may not have needed it done? That ticks me off. But I was going to have him neutered anyway so I guess no harm done.

    I'd give him more time to see if the other testicle drops!

    A friend of mine had a Cane Corse pup with this issue... they waited till he was about 10 months to see if the second would drop, it did not and he was neutered at a year. If you can wait, I would because Argos (pup) had a very long recovery due to the abdominal surgery

    I also agree about waiting for a while.

    One of our boy's testicles did not drop. I researched the issue and found that there was a significantly higher rate of cancer with the non-dropped testicle, so decided to get it removed. Please note we did not get our boy neutered, just had the one undropped testicle removed.

    Our boy hated the op, and was in pain for some weeks; I think it took him about a month to recover.
