Thread: Batty Has to Go in to Be Desexed Again....

    It sometimes happens with horses, one testicle isn't descended, so they only geld the one, these are call "riggs" from what I remember and they still chase the mares and fillies. Can be a real problem. Sometimes the second testicle will descend and then they can have that taken and be a full gelding!

    If it's a testicle, easily fixed anyway, thank goodness.
    My thoughts exactly. I'm not too worried about the costs. Insurance will cover it and if not I have the funds available and then some. I did want to inform the rescue of it though, as it may not have just been Batty IYKWIM.

    It's definitely there, I've felt it. I am thinking that one was removed and they didn't look properly for the other, or were just in a rush. Now there is one testicle dropping and the other has already been chopped...

    Nope nothing else quite like it! I'm just a bit peeved that I bought him desexed and now I know he's not, or at least not properly!
    Wow, never heard of this one!! But given we don't desex our pups until 12 weeks, I guess they are a little bigger and easier to manage?? We don't rehome our pups until after 14 weeks either.

    I would want to know who the vet was, should be on his vaccination cert and then I would make a phone call. That is simply not acceptable!!

    ETA... have had MANY dogs desexed who have had longer and more complicated surgeries to find that missing bit....can't think of any decent excuse for that vet! Poor baby Batty

    Ok, we have been to our vet this morning, it is just a testicle dropping - Yay! I have spoken to the vet (not just the office but the vet himself) and explained what happened and he is going to fix Batty again for me for free.

    The vet honestly cannot remember what has happened, but I am happy with this situation. I have let the rescue group know what is happening and requested that they get in contact with the new owners of the other two male pups to check in with them and make sure the same thing isn't happening.

    SPRV, the only reason Batty was picked up at 9 weeks instead of 8 was because hubby and I were away for 4 days over Christmas and weren't able to take him with us. I have heard of it happening before - met three pups who had the same thing happen, they came from the RSPCA. The vet honestly cannot remember what happened.
