Absolutely no offense intended, but why bother?
No offense taken, in the same light as the question you asked, I ask why not?
It appears there has been some really good discussion based on even considering our possibility of having this done. Most likely we will not, but this is something we investigated just so we would know about the option.
I do beg to differ in reference to whether a dog knows or reacts to being neutered. Since we do not talk dog, we really do not have any way of knowing and all we can do is speculate and assume. We have absolutely no idea how this type of surgery impacts an animal psychologically. We only really know how it impacts us as owners and observers.
I certainly would be interested in reading any studies that have been done as far as neutered animal pack and social behaviors once the have the surgery and are introduced back into the pack.
Personally, I suspect, that the only reason anyone would do this is to preserve the natural look of their pet if it is important to them. There may be other reasons but I am not aware of them as this time. As we found out, these neuticles exist for other animals as well. There must be a market or this company would not still be in business. Of course there are ( what I would call extremists ) who would view this type of replacement as very important.
There are other products that have evolved from this. For example this company also offers Eye replacements. Is that type of replacement more purposeful? I guess it all depends on how you look at it (no pun intended).
I really specifically put this post on this board more for the purpose of others who might be interested to have an opportunity of viewing the surgical video and to share information in regard to the existence, costs, and complications that may be involved when considering replacing the testicles of a dog with neuticles during the neutering process.
