    Thanks to everyone for asking...my next issue once this is better is to address the prostate problem. I have to see if neutering an older dog puts them more at risk? I've also heard neutering changes their disposition and personality...he's so good as it is I hooe it doesn't mess with his chemistry. I didn't really get into it with the vet because I was too pre occupied with the leg problem..time to look into that now...but this experience didn't do anything to make me feel better about putting him u see anesthesia. If anything it only heightened my fears..

    He'll have to be neutered if his prostate is enlarged - it can end up being life threatening at a certain point if not addressed

    I'll say that if Chum is in good health he should be fine in surgery. Tyson had surgery at 8 yrs & then again one month shy of 9 yrs old. I had the same fear and my vet now (bully experienced) said that if he's in overall good health, they shouldn't have any issues. They may take a smidge longer to get to moving vs a pup.... But that's about it. I'm happy to hear Chum is starting to put weight on the leg.
    Also, Tyson did not change at all after his neuter. No change to disposition or personality.

    Thanks for the update... At least he is showing some progress.

    As for neutering-- i did not see any change in all of my guys, but they were all done at 8 mths of age. Keep us posted and will be sending lots of positive thoughts to help support you

    @Chumley I'm glad to hear Chum is making a little progress, continued healing thoughts and prayers from Murray and I. For what it's worth I saw absolutely no personality change in Murray after his neuter and cherry eye surgery, he too was just a pup

    Chum is doing much better! The vet called me today and said his age shouldn't matter as far as the neutering but also said his prostate condition is mild..and if there are no issues as far as blood in urine, difficulty peeping or urinary infections it's not really necessary at this point. I am considering It but the anesthesia experience still haunts me..

    I'm sorry, i'm just now seeing this about Chum.

    I would have freaked out too. A few years ago when i couldn't get Ruthie out of one of her seizures, i booked it to the vet and took some people and cars out on the way.

    I'm sending you and Chumley lots of prayers and i hope he gets better!

    Overjoyed on your great news...Go, Chum!

    I don't think neutering will change him but
    after your experience with the anesthesia,
    I'd freak out. Fortunately, you've got time
    to think on it. Sending loving hugs to y'all.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    So HAPPY... He is doing better! I know it is scary, but discuss with your vet doing it now versus at a later age? I get more nervous the older the get too

    I came here today and this is the thread i was looking for. Thank goodness Chum is doing better. And that it is not urgent to neuter him. That bad after effect of the anesthesia would traumatize me more too. You and i share the same reason why i don't want to neuter my boy. He is very good as it is, so i'll leave it be. Here's wishing you and Chum lesser stress days and hope Chum have a speedy recovery. Please Give the little handsome guy a tight a hug for me.

    Happy to read that @Chumley is improving in regards to his leg. Let him have that baby seat,he needs it more than the kids! I hope he improves every day! When that is healed, you might start considering the neuter.......just because if the prostate causes trouble later on-his age could be a factor. You might want to have a pro/con discussion with the vet, and also remind him of the "incident" you had with his breathing,and then you will be able to make a decision. Love to you and Chum,keep up the improvement Chum!
