Does neutering an animal stunt their growth?

I was told this, and I just was wondering if it was true.

  • From what I've seen between my 2 cats(males) it does if you do it before they are full grown. You gotta let the tesosterone fill them in.My one was done at 6 mo,the other at a year. The 6 mo one is considerably smaller and has female facial features.

  • not necessarily my cat was neutered at 6 months and he is huge..not fat but "tall" and muscular and weighs 22 lbs..and none of that is fat. it depends on more of what breed and the size of the parents. i also had a Siamese mix that i neutered at 4 months and he got to be big as well, again not fat but tall and muscular. my current cat is also a Siamese mix although he is black..he has the Siamese build
