    Default Neutering

    Hi all,
    Ok, Odin is 6 months old now and his one testical did not drop, should I have the procedure done now, or wait a little longer? Not sure on what to do after reading some posts here.

    Tyson had one in, and one out. We didn't neuter him, he was fine until he hit 8 yrs old. Then his prostate got enlarged and we were forced to neuter. I would do it while he's still young, but check to see if he'll need any other type of procedures so they can be done all at once. Less times under, the better.
    Also be 110% sure that the vet is bulldog experienced. We almost lost Tyson bc we didn't have a bulldog experienced vet/staff

    Thank God we have found the best of the best now! It was night and day with surgeries!

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    I would waite until he is about two years old. IMO dogs and bulldogs need their hormones to develope fully. Not only how they look, but also bone developement needs hormones. If one testicle does not drop there is a bigger risk of tecticular cancer, but not before the age off two.

    I know someone with a lab who did it around 2. He is a service dog so they bred him first.

    If the one has not dropped wait till it does or he is 2 yrs old, which ever comes first.... having the procedure while still up, can be much more painful for him.

    Just like to say you ladies are on the ball, this website is invaluable for EB owners. The care shown overall and especially the camaraderie on here is as special and unique as the breed of dog we love.

    Thanks for all the replies, did some more reading on this, and found this article with all the pros and cons:
    Neutering Your Male Dog ? Pros and Cons

    I think I will wait for now.
