Has anyone ever had to have exploratory surgery when having your puppy neutered? I purchased my puppy last Friday and I took him to the Vet. to arrange for the neutering and he said that Bijou will have to have a more serious surgery than just a simple neutering. Has anyone else had to go through this? I guess this would have definitely disqualified him for show/stud purposes. Please help. He is due for surgery on August 18th.

We'll probably need more information, but I am assuming you are referring to undescended testicles?

I was going to ask the same question. :lol:
When your breeders vet did his exam he deffinately would have realized that the testicles weren't decended. Was it on your health certificate? Aside from that every breeder checks on their own. If you weren't informed of this before you purchased your pup you should talk to your breeder and find out why. This will cost more than a normal neutering and your breeder should cover the difference in my opinion. That would be the only ethical thing to do. I hope everything goes well for you and your baby.
