there is a risk with every operation,you should speak to your vet bout this,but also do you want him fathering unwanted puppies,speak to your vet and see what he thinks is best for your dog xx

i have had many many dogs and all of them have been spayed/neutered i have never had a problem so far, that includes my foster dogs as well, i think the risk of something going wrong is worth it opposed to having more unwanted puppies running around that will more than likely be put to sleep because theres no homes for them. there is also a higher risk of cancer in dogs who are NOT altered than in ones who are.

Colbi was spayed and she was fine. I've never heard of a dog dying from being neutered or spayed, but yes there can be problems/mistake made in any surgery.
You should go ahead and get your dog neutered. You don't want any unwanted puppies.

Any type of surgery for any species is a risk; however, it is a very common procedure and a very small percentage of animals have problems. Neutering males is a much simpler procedure than spaying a female. There are many more health related reasons to neuter your dog than to not neuter him.

The risk is with the anesthesia given to the dog during the surgery. Shelby is the first dog we've ever had spayed, she came out of it with no problems. A lot of pain though when she woke up
Every dog is different, and you won't really know how a dog will react to anything, unless it is tried. I know, that doesn't really help you make a decision, but that's just the fact of it all...you won't know till you try.

We took Shelby in for a teeth cleaning, a process which involved some light anesthesia, and before they took her in, the vet assistant had me read and sign a document, which in so many words, stated that there are risks involved when a dog is put under with anesthetics.

In short, they were saying that I had to understand the risk, and choose whether or not I accepted it. Based on the fact that Shelby has been under anesthesia before, and there weren't any complications, I signed the document and hoped she would come out of it okay. Fortunately she did

On the upside, neutering your dog will greatly reduce the risk of him developing testicular cancer later in life. So neutering is definitely a plus

I am sure the vet will be able to give you some statistics, but I mix with a lot of doggy people and have never known anybody whose dog has died due to complications from neutering so I suspect the risks are very very low.

I'd never castrate my dog.

Imagine now...

"Mr eb4i? Yes... We'd like you to be castrated as the world population of humans is just to great... besides, there's an increased chance of cancer sir, if you remain intact, so it's really best for you. Oh don't worry the chance of death is small, and you'll be doing everyone a favour. You'll be more docile and easy to train too! How wonderful!!"

PHAH! Bollox! (No pun intended.)

I dunno... I never but NEVER take my eyes of my dog. I know he's not breeding. I don't think it's fair to castrate someone just because you don't wanna watch out for him.
