Today is Eli's big day.  He is being neutered and I'm really nervous. Worst part? Getting up with both dogs at 5am and not being able to feed him. Of course, most of this is me.

Lorry Pemon turned 6 on March 17. He's weighing 110.  Forgot his height

Pemon was done at 5 months 50 lbs.

He weighs 64 pounds and is tall! He's almost a head taller than Chesney, our Golden Retriever so I would say yes, he achieved it. We have always neutered between 5-6 months and everyone grew just fine.

This was three years ago. My vet rolled his eyes at the suggestions that we wait. I trusted his judgement.

Fozzie will not be neutered until he is at least a year, if we can make it that far. Larger dogs need their hormones in place longer for joint development, I am told. He is definitely becoming a larger dog. If he starts to behave too badly un-neutered we might move that up. Complete strangers I talk to with larger dogs know this and are waiting also. Pretty sure we all have different vets.

I'll let you know in August what our Vet is going to charge for Pemon's annual.   Karen, keep calling SPCA.  You know what they say, "The squeaky wheel get the oil" (or is it grease)  Anyway, they eventually will probably want to shut you up.  LOL  If you have a local humane society check out their website.  Like I said we were assigned to a local Vet (some vets volunteer to do this for almost nothing.)  So we were comfortable with the whole thing.

It really does depend on the area, if you live in a big city see if you can find a vet in the outlying areas, it may save you big $$$$

Kathy, We paid almost $400 for both Benny and Cocco(cuz they're small breed) for heartworm.  Dexter was another $200 for the same thing.  Will be paying more next year cuz it goes by the weight. 

Comment by Kathy, Elliott & Spencer on June 18, 2013 at 4:18pm
Wow we just paid $525 for heartworm tests and meds., bordatella vaccine for both, rabies vaccine for only Elliott.
