NEUTER NEUTER NEUTER NEUTER!

I can't say it enough. First off, if you neuter he's more likely to not do that disgusting marking thing that SMELLS. It reduces his risk for cancer I think and honestly? If you don't neuter him he'll be extremely.. horny. :lol: He'll chase after females in heat, etc etc. If he is bred once he'll never be the same - and animals aren't like us with the whole sex thing.

Anyways, I'm sure one of my more experienced fellows can explain this all to you. But NEUTER HIM!

1. Prostate cancer.

2. Prostatic cysts which can rupture into the abdomen and lead to severe infection and death.

3. Testicular cancer.

4. Benign prostatic hypertrophy which can be quite uncomfortable for the dog and cause frequent urination and bloody urine.

5. Increased chance of wandering, marking, and other undesirable behaviors.


There is a huge pet overpopulation problem in the US. If your dog is not prove in the conformation ring, health tested, has a great temperament, has superb structure, etc., it should not be bred. MOST dogs should not be bred.

Fantastic Response JMM!


There are so many unwanted Maltese in rescue--every spay/neutered pet is one that isn't contributing to the sad numbers of unwanted, neglected, unhealthy, and mistreated furbabies in the world! Plus, neutering your little fellow will make him happier and healthier.

You might check with your vet too to see if he expects Elmo to need a dental in the next year. If so, you could do everything at once so he would only need anesthesia once. If his teeth look great, I would go ahead and schedule the neuter any time. Don't forget to have bloodwork done before hand and be sure they use only Isoflurance gas (you have to request that they be masked down and not receive an IV induction drug other than Propofol).
