    Ask an Angell vet

     

    I have an 11 year old dog that I thought I could get away with not having neutered, no problem behaviors, I had no intention of ever breeding him. Well you guessed it ... he has a tumor in his one testicle and is going in to be neutered next week.

    He's not a spring chicken but the vet thinks he'll do allright. Just wanted to warn people that this can occur, it's easier on the dog to have it done when they're young.

    If the Angell vets would like to comment, thanks in advance.  

          12/06  Update:   He's okay!  I just hope someone will learn from my mistake.  The undescended testicle was deep in his abdomen.

    Hi Dog-Lady,

    We always advise that dogs and cats with undescended testicles be neutered at about 6 months to prevent the undescended testicle from forming a tumor later in life.

    So glad to hear the update that he is okay.  All best to you and your dog.

    Thanks for the response.

       Again,  folks get it done when they're young... much easier on the dog.
