Age to neuter?

1601 Views 8 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  Lizzie
At what age do you neuter your dog? My vet reccomends 6-8 months. I have done a lot of reading recently that the Humane Society and other vets are doing it younger and younger. They claim that the 6 mo rule is arbitrary and that the younger the pup, the easier the recovery period. Also, what is the average cost? My vet quoted $250.00 if he is over 50# at 6 mos. I was thinking of going through the Friends of Animals and getting a certificate for $64.00, but I would have to use a different vet.

We only got Chapps when he was around 7 months so we got him done at 8 months.
Because he is a rescue, I got a special rate of $60.00! I was very thankful to that.

Mind you, getting Holly spayed at 9 months, it was $220.
