    Hi guys I have a question. My dog is 8months old now and he still has some baby teeth left. I called the vet to set up an appointment to have them removed and she asked me if I wanted to have him neutered at the same time. I said that i'll have neutered at a later time but she said that's it's better to have him neutered as well so he doesn't have to go through anesthesia twice. I was thinking of possibly breeding my dog and getting him neutered later on but what are some adverse effects of anesthesia and what do you guys recommend I should do w/ his baby teeth, have them extracted now or what? Thanks :p
     
  2. Retained puppy teeth is a hereditary issue.

    Neuter at the same time.

    i would say neuter at the same time since you plan on neutering.
