I have an english cocker spaniel who will be 6 months old tomorrow. Our vet has advised that we get him neutered between 6 and 10 months old, we've looked it up in our doggy books etc and its more or less the same in every book.
Our puppy trainer told us she reccomends him being done at approx 8 months. So my question is when did you have yours done?
Did you notice any changes in them? Good or bad? Has anyone had any bad experiences with neutering? I've heard things about dogs becoming really overweight or personalities changing?
My biggest worry is his seperation anxiety. He's had a really difficult start to life and we are working hard with him on this, but he was at the vets for a blood test a couple of wks ago and apparently cried and cried allll day whenever people were out of view. I worry he'll be like that when he gets neutered. We're still working with him on it and he's making progress...but only very small amounts. If we leave the room he doesn't always cry, but he'll be right behind the door and will just watch and wait for us to come back. It's like he can't relax!
