Ask a Vet:
When and what age should we have our puppy neutered?

While animal shelters often neuter puppies at an earlier age such that they
can be neutered prior to adoption, we generally recommend waiting until four
to six months of age for neutering. This additional time allows puppies to
mature a bit more which makes the general anesthesia associated with
neutering easier and safer in some puppies.  You can call to schedule an appointment at 813 988 1189 with Dr Welborn.
