No. Their metabolisms may slow down- but controlling their portions and exercise will keep them slim. I've never one had a dog gain any abnormal weight.

The health benefits to the dog can't be emphasized enough.

Ok i didn't know because my friends dogs and cats got fat after they got them fixed. But they also have a auto feeder for their animals too. I do not believe in a auto feeder. I feed my pups 3 times a day.

Yeah, portions need to be controlled before and after neutering to prevent them from becoming overweight. It's probably because their metabolisms slowed down a bit and they could eat as much as they want.

You mean after the neuter? Of course he will. He'll act like nothing happened the
day after surgery. You'll be the one who'll have to keep him from jumping and
being too active for a little while, through the healing process...he'll bounce right
back. The surgery for males is quicker and much simpler than for females.

It will take a little while for most hormones to leave his body, from my
experience around 6 weeks, could be longer if the dog is older though.
Neutering will reduce the amount of testosterone in his system, it won’t
eliminate the hormones completely. Neutering doesn't affect the basic
temperament of the dog, but due to the decrease in testosterone levels,
sexual behaviors will either be reduced or most often disappear all together.

After the neuter I suggest you keep him in a E-collar/cone to prevent him
from licking or pulling out/biting on his stitches. He might be sleepy or grumpy
for the first day after his neuter. Keep his walks short and on-leash only for
the first 10 days, no rough playing either. You'll have to limit his activity and
not allow him to jump or walk stairs while he's healing. Most dogs bounce back
quickly, but that doesn't mean he's done healing, so you'll have to keep an
eye on him to ensure he doesn't overdo it. It's about 7-14 days for the
outside wound to heal, but longer for the inner wound. Don't bathe him,
and keep an eye on his surgery/incision site to ensure there won't be
discharge/pus, bruising or abnormal swelling.
