Kilo from CT



Got my baby Kilo (M) at 4 weeks old (First Picture) from a malnourished mom who has been breed for many litters. Had 8 puppies at once and was showing ribs. Wanted him to be strong so I had him on Esbilac powder milk for two weeks and then put he accepted dry food. He's now going on three months and has has rabies shot, kennel cough, heart worm, DHLLP vac has one more visit for dis temper and possibly Lyme disease vaccination. He has been kept indoors as advised by Vet until he gets his next shots in three weeks. My question is how many people have decided to neuter their dogs? It is a topic at hand for me since Vet recommends 6-9months a healthy age for them. He's currently not aggressive just very playful (as a puppy should be) but my friend has a year old Pitbull who I brought to take for a walk in park intact and maintained composure with no aggression to female dogs in the park. (Not to be confused with dog park)

Great looking dog Gabe. I will neuter Blue at about 18 months. I want him fully grown first.

He's adorable! How come he had his rabies vx so young? As far as I know most are not labelled for dogs under 14-16 weeks old?

As for the neutering, it's entirely up to you, but should you decide to neuter him, I definitely agree about waiting until 18 months - 2 years so he gets the full benefit of his hormones. I'm also an advocate for foregoing spay/neuter altogether if you feel you're responsible enough to manage an intact dog and prevent breeding.

It depends on where you are located. I am a Licenced Veterinary Technician and in the state of California Rabies vaccine is at 12 weeks old by law. It used to be 16 weeks until 2 years ago.

And I agree on holding off with the Neuter at least until he is fully developed.

Huh, good to know. Over here none of the rabies vaccines are labelled for under 14 weeks and it isn't required by law, which I think is crazy considering we're rural and pets have way more access to potentially affected wildlife.

I just had my male neutered at like 8months. I ask the vet if we should wait until he's full grown but they said no studies have been done where neutering before 2 years of age has cause any stunt in growth... Hopefully my vet didn't lie to me. I hope my Vinny with still grow to be big as he should. He's 9months and 70lbs

They're correct, it doesn't stunt their growth. It causes them to grow more rapidly (you'll notice how dogs fixed young tend to be taller and leggier with less muscle mass than intact dogs) which studies have shown to affect bones and joints negatively. Even the AVMA has started to acknowledge increased risks of cancer in altered animals.

The only reason we neutered him was to reduce the chance of cancer... My vet said neutering cuts the chances of cancer by 50%... And since we lost our last dog to cancer we said ok neuter him... I hope we made the right choice.
