Was anyone's dog WORSE after being neutered??

We had our dog (9 mons. old) neutered about 3 weeks ago, and now he's even crazier than before!! He has more energy and is more defiant than he used to be! How is this possible?? LOL!

  • seems odd that this is occurring now that he's been neutered. i can't say why but just that i doubt it's that that is causing it.

  • Mine was always a little bit crazy and I don't really think the neutering has any effect on the dog at all. Age will calm him down, thats about all.

  • yes! My dog really went nuts (lol) after he was neutered! He chased his tail constantly, and bit and chewed on himself practically non stop. We spent a lot of time and money at the vet, and could never 'fix' the problem :(

  • At about 10 months old to 2 or 3 years old they go through a phase similar to a teenager. Probably has little to do with the fact you had him neutered it is just the age and phase.
