Cairo is officially at 5months and has found a new bag of energy at night that is extreme to say the least. Caesar and I wanted to know what age you guys are fixing your boys?
Cairo is still small in size and will fixing him at 6month slow his growth or is that just a myth?
Well, Ariel has had an energy boost lately too…I think the other dogs are ready to pack her bags and kick her out the door.
I kind of doubt neutering will help that too much. But if I had a boy dog, I would probably wait till closer to a year to neuter, unless I started seeing some signs of 'testosterone poisioning' If I saw any marking in the house, inappropriate aggression towards people or other dogs, I would probably neuter any time around six months.
Early neuter will often make males grow very tall and lanky, rather than stunting their growth. Something to do with the testosterone is a limiting factor for long bone growth. Lisa has more info about this than I do, and maybe she will chime in here. But I would say no, neutering won't stunt his growth at all.
