Puppy Question

  1. Ok you guys...
    I picked up Fattie just now from his neuter surgery, and it looks odd. I mean it's clean and dry, etc but are there different ways to neuter a dog?

    I guess my sis's dog Sparkie, it looks like with him they took the testicles and scrotum, and with Fattie, it looks like they took the testicles only and left the sack. It looks weird. Is that normal?

    Sorry, don't know too much about dog testicles. Can't help you there.

    Wow, Miranda and Fattie will share an anniversary. What a small world this is.

    my dog kept his scrotum also. Maybe there ARE different ways of doing it.... well, I SAY he still has it. I believe he does. But I'm not going to go look, lol.. I don't think he'd appreciate it. But I remember checking it the day I brought him home, and I recall thinking it looked odd with nothing there but a sack/.

    The traditional way is to remove the testicles only. The younger the dog is when he is neutered, the less likely his scrotum will remain "dangling". It can be performed using either one or two incisions but the normal is only one, just cranial to the scrotum.

    "A little Oomph"! I love it! We humans are such wimps... your kiddo just had a full Hysterectomy/Oophorectomy and she'll be chasing the ball at full speed inside of 48 hrs, likely. And all without any post-op meds...

    I think that's one of the things I'll really miss about working with 'em.

    Yes, when Apollo lost his family jewels, they left the sac, which was really freaky to me at first. Now it's just a hairy fold of skin there. He was neutered after having sired 2 litters so he was older when it was done.

    I've seen it done both ways-but if that empty sac is upsetting to you and Fatty get him a nice set of these.......

    What are Neuticles?
    Patented Neuticles are testicular implants for pets that are neutered. Neuticles are available for canines, felines, equine and bulls. Neuticles should be implanted when the pet is neutered- but can be implanted afterwards in most cases.

    Why Neuticles?

    The 200 year-old traditional form of altering used on family pets includes the permanent removal of the pet's testicles. Many caring pet owners hesitate or even to refuse to neuter their pets because of this. Neuticles eliminates 'neuter-hesitant' concerns - as a 'Neuticled' pet looks and can feel exactly the same after neutering.

    Why not a Vasectomy?

    This expensive procedure simply sterilizes the pet. The pet still retains all aggressive behavior and characteristics of a non-neutered pets. For this reason a Vasectomy is rarely performed on animals.

    Have there been any complications?

    Commercial establishment of Neuticles and the implant procedure began in December, 1995. Research and development of Neuticles and the implantation procedure began in March, 1993. To date nearly 50,000 pets Worldwide have been neutered with Neuticles by over 9,000 veterinarians with no complications when implanted as directed.

    What post operative care is required?

    The same cautions used when you neuter the traditional method should be used which includes keeping the incision area clean and minimal activity for several days following the procedure. Refer to Veterinary Update for additional information.

    Are Neuticles Original?

    CTI Corporation created Neuticles and the testicular implant procedure for animals and enforces all federal trademark and patent rights awarded. CTI has received Worldwide recognition and publicity for providing pet owners an option to the traditional form of neutering their beloved pet.

    Do Neuticles come in different models?

    Neuticles are available in 3 models: NeuticlesOriginals, NeuticlesNaturals and NeuticlesUtra. Each are crafted from FDA medically-approved (for human use) materials- replicating the animals testicle in size, shape and weight.

    Do Neuticles come in sizes?

    Five-sized Neuticles are available for any-sized canine or feline. One size is currently available for equine and bulls. Refer to sizing chart for additional information and 3D sizing chart. Custom sizing is available.

    What is the right sized Neuticles for my pet?

    To determine the correct size simply provide us the pets age, breed and weight and a precise selection is made. A sizing chart is also provided to assist the veterinarian and pet owner in correct sizing.

    What's the difference between NeuticlesOriginal, NeuticlesNatural and NeuticlesUltra

    When my cat got neuter, they just took the testicles. He's so fluffy though, you can't see much.
