Age to neuter?

1604 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.

I just got my bully neutered at 6 months, didn't seem to phase him much. My vet also will not neuter under 6months... especially for an English Bully because they don't like to put them under that young due to their breathing... But it barely slowed him down for even the night after the surgery ~lol. He's so tough...
