Biscuit was seen from his first puppy vaccines to his current last treatment plan of his neutering. His parents waited until he reached his adult weight and size (about 14 months) to neuter him. He remained a calm, sweet, well disciplined and gentle boy with no adverse affects of waiting for his neuter. Every pet I consult on is given a tailored individualized plan for all steps and aspects of their life,, neutering is just one. We discuss all pros and cons and then decide together when the ideal time is.
based on physical exam and pet parents concerns. He had all of his adult teeth in place, a pre op blood work screen done, and both of his testes had descended into the scrotum. He had also completed his puppy vaccines.
Routine pre scrotal open neuter. Some clients may elect a prophylactic gastropexy along with the neuter. Biscuit is a smaller Chessie.
Biscuit had a mild skin infection that his parents chose to treat after his neuter. His bill reflects treatment for the skin and his neuter. In some cases I would have postponed the neuter I was worried it might complicate post op healing.
