Neutering

Q Chris asks:

We have a German Shepherd who is 2 yrs. old. He has not been neutered yet. (My boyfriend has had a problem with the dog going under the knife...) We are planning on getting him neutered very soon. Is the healing time longer in older dogs? What is the average healing time for neutering? Generally, when do the stitches start itching and the dog start to scratch at them? Thank you, CLC

Q Our vet says: At 2 years of age your dog should heal normally following this type of surgery (unless there are complications such as infection etc). It usually takes around 10-14 days for the wound to heal fully and vets usually take sutures out at this point unless the dissolving type have been used. Most dogs are fine from this point onwards and make a very good recovery. If you are worried talk to your vet about the procedure and possible complications.
