My mother is determined to make me get my puppy desexed, I live in her house so she dos have some say with what I do with him.
I used to think that all dogs needed to be desexed unless they're used for breeding, but doing some of my own reaserch I have compleatly changed my mind. Males seem to get more cancers and health risk after being desexed than what they would be if they where left entire.
I do not wish to get my puppy desexed at all, but my mother doesn't like the idea of having a male entire dog, only because he could get a female dog pregnant.
A vasectomy seems like a good idea, he wouldn't be able to get a female pregnant but he would still have all his hormones which is what I want.
Does anyone know anything about this?
From googling stuff, looking a report, ect, I can't find any information that would make this a bad idea. It doesn't seem to affect their health at all (other than the surgery and being infertile).
I'm not sure if our vet would do this though, they are very very pushy on getting dogs desexed at 6 months, pure or mixed breed.
But there are other vets about 1.5 hours away that may do it.
