    Default Batty Has to Go in to Be Desexed Again....

    Just a general GRRR.

    I have come to realise that Batty wasn't desexed properly. I think he had a retained testicle as he now has one starting to drop... He was desexed by the rescue group before I picked him up.

    So, now I have the joys of booking him in to be done again..

    I highly doubt this would be a common thing, but has anyone experienced this before?

    I'm thinking of getting the vet to re-examine him. I've also found out that his microchip hasn't actually been registered with the company too...

    Oops someone didn't count.

    Was he done quite young?

    Best of luck with it all. Hopefully it will just be the angle of the dangle that is making it look that way. Or have you physically felt it?

    Nothing like a good dog testicle discussion before I prepare the roast diner, hey!

    Gees, I have never encountered it or heard of it. I wonder what recourse you would have with the rescue group as you did pay for desex and chip costs.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    He was done at 7 weeks and I picked him up at 9 weeks.

    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!

    I really don't think I'd bother Di, I think it is actually the vet's fault not the rescue. The chip is easy to fix. I have all of the details, all I need to do is send it in to the chip company and they will fix it for me.

    Haven't heard it happening before, but I don't exactly enquire about every dogs testicals lol :P But it sounds possible, ive been told Leo has one teste that hasn't budged prehaps the vet doing op couldn't see it at all and thought he was a one teste dog...

    Vet obviously didn't find it Angela. I would prefer to assume he/she at least had a darned good check for it though, rather than just not bothering cause they couldn't feel it.

    Still, you should not be the one paying financially for this op! The rescue organisation you purchased him from needs to discuss this with the original vet.

    Hi Angela

    Are you sure it is a testicle dropping? It could be something else...something not so nice

    We're off to the vet tomorrow, certainly feels right for a testicle, it's not solid but not liquid either IYKWIM. I'm sure the vet will be able to tell me. I've booked in an extra long appointment just in case he needs scans done so they can be done at the same time

    I think I need to look at it that way, rather than being so cynical

    I've given them a call, but have made an appointment with the vet to have it thoroughly checked before making any kind of decision that way. Just to be on the safe side. I'm fairly sure it's just a teste finally descending. Perhaps it was retained a fair way in and is only dropping now and that's why it wasn't noted before.

    Look I know this may sound harsh but with rescue animals they may have been pressed for time or in a hurry, and when the testicle wasn't easily found, well...it happens.

    If it's a testicle, easily fixed anyway, thank goodness.
