I am just wondering whether i should neuter my 14 week old male rottie?
I know it’s early now, so my question is… is neutering him (6 month) good or bad?
Although there are some conflicting ideas about this, general opinion from veterinarians and other animal health professionals indicates that neutering (or spaying) a pup before 6 months of age is beneficial health-wise.
It protects them from a variety of reproductive order conditions. With a male it can also help reduce the chances of him ‘spraying or marking’ his territory by lifting his leg (your home furnishings and carpets will really appreciate this!). It can also reduce male-to-male aggression and the desire to wander off or chase after females in season.
I’d personally recommend having your pup neutered sometime before he reaches 6 months old. I’d also suggest discussing it all with your own veterinarian as individuals vets may prefer a certain time-frame or have other considerations.
Hope this helps, best of luck with your pup.
