I don't know much about chemical castration, but I agree with everyone else on the surgery. Angel had one testicle that never descended so his surgery was a bit more involved. The next day, you would never have known he had surgery! I know they're all different, but I don't think he'll have a problem.

As for your BF not wanting to "snip" him, whose dog is it? If it's his dog, then maybe he should make the call. But, what if he ends up needing to have it done for whatever reason, wouldn't it be harder on him? And yes, there's always neuticles! (spelling?)

Postponing it is a good idea. It will give him time to research it and for you two to have future discussions.

THANKS AGAIN to each and everyone of you!

I did opt out of everything but the 'teeth removal' for now.
I would say Klein is our dog but he spends more time with the boyfriend these days so he has his say i suppose...
Either way, I decided to wait.

So Klein has just returned from his teeth removal and is still very sedated and drowsy (sleeping all the time)

I am so glad that went well, now it is all about soft food and NO bones of course.
I wonder when he will be able to eat, the Vet said around 8pm.
She also did not prescribe any meds, is there anything I need to look out for after such an intervention?

You didn't get antibiotics? The dogs usually bounce back
quickly after teeth extractions, so he should be able to
eat his wet food tonight, no problem. If he doesn't want
to, then it's fine to wait until tomorrow morning.

Also, if you have any questions regarding this, don't be
shy to call your vet & ask some questions, many will help
answer over the phone.

nope, how strange!
She did not prescribe ANY meds, no antibiotics.
I called back and asked and she said there is no need and if he does not eat tonight, he can start tomorrow.
I asked what about pain killers? I don't want to be stuck in the middle of the night with him being in pain.. she said he will be fine!

You don't need pain meds. I was given antibiotics in case of infection.
Perhaps, if the teeth extracted were not infected, there was no need
for antibiotics. Just a guess.

Usually if it is just pulling the baby teeth, antibiotics aren't given. Just keep an eye on the area, it should be fine.
