Thread: How to Tell if Desexed

  1. #1

    Default How to Tell if Desexed

    Hi
    I have a strange question and just need help, a friend is looking at getting rid of his male staffy, but not sure if it was desexed and I don't know how to tell, is there any way of knowing with out having to make a vet visit?
    Anything would help.

    Thank you

    Well, the obvious is to have a look for his balls, or should I say missing testicles?

    That would be...pretty obvious, believe me.

    Some vets will tattoo a small de-sexing emblem in the dog's ear. You could look for this, but not all vet's do it anyway.

    Hope that helps.

    Well it's not "rocket science" to tell when a male dog is de-sexed & surely the dogs owner would know whether their male dog is de-sexed or not...hence my words "i don't know whether to laugh or not"

    Surely their VET would have told them so, that's if the dog has even been seen by a VET.....


    It upsets me greatly to read or here of any dog being unwanted by it's owner.. hence my words " i don't know whether to cry or not".

    OP, just check out whether the dog has balls or not.

    Um, but maybe make sure no-one else is around to see you. Some ppl could find it a bit...weird...to see you manipulating a dog's testicles and studying them.

    AF, again jumping to conclusions...it could be a rescue dog, or given to the OP's friend by somebody ELSE. Consider other options.

    To the OP: it can be confusing because of the way some neutering procedures are done these days. I work at a dog rescue and some of the dogs actually appear to still have testicles, but are actually desexed. This is because one of the ways to do it is to remove the sac altogether, and the other simply leaves part or all of the sac intact. If it is large and palpable, the dog is still entire.

    My dog, for instance, has nothing remaining. My OH's dog was recently neutered and his sac looks the same, if not a bit smaller because it was left.

    That was what I thought, naomi. Oftentimes people are given dogs by family members and friends etc.
