The Neutering Thing Again
Lucky's vet said it would be all right to neuter him between four and six months. II read somewhere that 5 months was ideal because anything before and the pup would gain weight. So I thought okay, let's wait until 5 months. But then I read the earlier the better, because the mounting and marking can become ingrained and if so, even after the surgery they will continue. So I thought okay, the sooner the better (Lucky's been at this since-mointing not marking- we first visited him at 5 weeks and it's really become an issue). Are there reasons to wait until 5 months or later? Has anyone had it done for their male dog at 4 months and was it okay? Any advice/experience will be so greatly appreciated.
