    Default To those who have lots of experience with male bulldogs

    I originally had intended to get Aldo neutered at 10 months old, to give him a chance to get a bit more male bulldog characteristics. He is barely 7 months old but his testicles have descended and grown a lot and are probably full size though I'm not sure cuz I have never had a bulldog before. Anyways, this morning I noticed one testicle has a big bump attached to it, almost like a tumor. It is hard and it seems to hurt him when I touch it, but not sure if it's pain or discomfort from me squeezing his boy parts I decided to neuter him as soon as possible to remove it in case it is anything abnormal. I called the vet and the soonest they can do it is Thursday. Do you think it is safe for me to wait or should I take him in for a consultation before that. I am also planning to remove some baby teeth that never fell out during the surgery so the doctor might ask me to wait until thursday morning anyways since he will need his full surgery staff. I just wanted the advice of the experts. There is always something going on with my Aldo

    Eagerly and Nervously awaiting the homecoming of Bruno Cannoli

    I had wanted to wait but we had emergency issues with Brutus boy part! Prolapsed urethra with a lot of blood! He was 8 months and neutuered and his 2 boys had already dropped and were I would say golf ball size maybe! There werent any lumps ... It could be nothing but I would just let the vet know and see if he wants to see him before Thursday!

    Watson was neutered at 9 months, seems to be filling out fine. Unless it looks infected, I don't think waiting until Thursday would make a difference

    We didn't get lex nuetured till he was 11 months old and he had some pretty good sized ones lol. Never noticed a lump I would just watch it a day or two and if it gets bigger take him in

    I would think waiting until Thursday should be fine, unless it gets bigger before then. Did you ask your vet about it?

    We had Tubs neutered at 5 months. He had dropped, but I doubt they were full size. He didn't have any problems. I just wanted to have hm neutered before he started marking his territory. :-) As for what you have mentioned. I don't think waiting a few more days will make a difference. But I think I would make it known to the vet anyway, if you haven't already. Good luck and keep us posted!

    I agree with @Davidh Thursday should be fine, and if they feel hot too, that's an indication of something else going on in there.

    I agree with all of the above. All of our Bully boys were neutered at 5.5 to 7 months old.
