What's the earliest age to neuter my pup? Can't Post

Hey guys,

Need advice over here. I was told by some members here that we can neuter our pup as early as 3 months old, after the 3 vac. and I understand that the recovery rate will be higher compared to neutering him at older age. Thing is, I called up two clinics this morning and both of them (Vets) laughed at me and said that before he can be neutered, he needs to do some blood test and at least 6 months old, preferable 8 months old to be neutered. Hmmm...Frown
May I know what's the blood test for? They said that even for female pup, must wait for them to have their first period before they can spay them. But I remember pups as young as 3 mths old has been spayed at PAWS. Please advice coz if possible, I would prefer to neuter him earlier so that he can heal faster and won't be able to remember the trauma much...
Thanks in advance!

hi thr,

i wouldnt know abt other forumers here or vets... but wat i know fr my vet is that u can start as soon as u finished the 3rd jab. if ur doggie is a male, best before age of 5mths... u can double check with anybody u know.

btw...jz outta curiousity, ru sure ur talkin to the vets when u called the clinics??? sometimes the vets are busy & the "nurse" konon wanna pandai-pandai only u know? cuz this had happen to me before Unsure

Re: [vinoviruz] What's the earliest age to neuter my pup? [In reply to] Can't Post

Frown Finally someone answered me! Haha.
Yeah, I was very sure that both of them are vets coz I make sure I only talk to the vets and not the nurses. Funny thing was that they both said the same thing (different clinics) and were laughing their heads off when I told them that I want to neuter Benji at month 4-5. Then they go on and on about doing some blood test. Asked them why and they said it's a procedure blah blah blah... And said that I can only neuter him at age 8 mth and above...geez...
But anyway, I have double-checked with my frn who is a vet and she told me that I can do it at 4 months old... so.. I am gonna bring Benji to her la...thanks for your reply!
PS: in case you were wondering why didn't I ask her in the first place, she was in HK for a holiday and I couldn't get her...hehe...

Hey Amanda,

Yeah, maybe the vet just wanna potong my neck with the blood test. Ask him why I need to do it and he can't answer me and said it's a procedure. Ceh!
Anyway, I am glad to hear that Pacco remains to be puppy-like after you spayed her. I wish Benji could remain as cute as as puppy after neutering him... :) Yeah, my frn's dog was spayed at about 3 years old and she kinda got depression after that... poor thing...

hi cindy,

i don think u need a bloodtest before u can neuter/spay ur furkid...nvr hrd b4. n it's nonsense that female shud hv their period first b4 spaying....not necessary...both my girls are spayed at 6 mths old (before hving their period)...and they are perfectly fine....on the 2nd day of the surgery, they can play d...n now cant even see the scar d....so don waste ur money to do any blood test..perhaps u shud go for another exp vet to neuter ur baby...

Re: [cindy_pebbles] What's the earliest age to neuter my pup? [In reply to] Can't Post

Normally vets will do a blood test before neut of older dogs and certain breed because of some genetic disorder, like blood clotting, kidney disease etc.
Younger dogs heal better and faster compared to older dogs. Neut the dog younger is also cheaper coz its weight is lighter.
Most ppl dont like to neut male dogs younger coz they would like it to grow to its full sized so they neut later. Female have no prob. Like Amanda said, they remain puppyish a bit longer when neut young.
Neut helps prevent some diseases n if we can help prevent it, then we would do wats best for our dogs.

Re: [jessicaohh] What's the earliest age to neuter my pup? [In reply to] Can't Post

Nope, the infection is in his ears!! The vet let me see the mites thru the microscope...saw them wrigglying...yucks! Yeah, if can better prevent from the mites coz the eggs are very hard to get rid off..that's why need about 4-6 jabs to ensure everything is ok... and mind you, the jabs are very very very painful coz they are oil-based jabs (dunno what that means by from what I see, Benji looked very painful) vet said can wipe some frontline in the ear to prevent mites...
So, now, for the time being, keep Benji indoor until everything is ok only can bring him kaikai...

Did you mean that if I neuter Benji at age 4-5 months old, he won't grow to his full size? Aiyoh, like that teruk..coz he is kinda small size for a MS right now...
So, do you know that if a MS needs to do blood test before the neutering??? Thanks in advance for your reply!

Re: [cindy_pebbles] What's the earliest age to neuter my pup? [In reply to] Can't Post

Well the best time for you to neuter your dog is when your dog's "jewel" is fully descended. Better still when he's fully an adult which is 1 year old. But EVEN better if you neuter him before he gets the chance to spray all over the wall, gate, etc, etc & humping females. Don't give him the chance to climb on females & hump them or else if you keep allowing him for months & months doing this, it'll be in his memory. But neutering can help remove the memory if & I mean IF ONLY you don't let him do it again. It'll take about two months for him to forget about it...But here & then after months of not humping females, he'll might do it again especially to females that are on heat or had just finished their heat (period).

I didn't know it was mites infection... Blush i actually brought him to see for some skin infection (i thought it was anyway, but vet said it was diaper-rash or something like that)... that's when the vet check the ear and found it to be foul smelling and dirty..(we checked it two days earlier and everything was ok!)...and she check thru the microscope and found out it was mites...Blush now very obedient and has been cleaning his ears every 2 days... hehe...
today another jab...dunno which part today...

Unsure i hope he can get well soon! so worry about him...this monday is the 4th jab and if not ok, then have to go for 2 more... burning hole in my pocket lor...coz one jab is about RM25...
