When one testicle on the dog fails to descend. Testicles should descend fully by the time the puppy is 2 months old. If the testicle is retained, it is usually non-functional and can become cancerous if it is not medically treated. The treatment that is suggested is to neuter your dog. When the neutering takes place, a small incision will be made to remove the undescended testicle(s); the normal testicle, if any, is removed in the regular manner.
Even though we watched him constantly, he would not leave the incision alone so we had to take him back to the vet to have a cone put on. He was also given anti-biotics and a sedative if he needed it at home.
Bosco is SO mad at him. Bosco wants to play, but I think he knows Tyson can't now that the cone is on.
Bosco! It's YOUR turn in 2 months!
