Why is important to neuter a cryptorchid pet?

*Cryptorchidism is when one or both testicles fail to descend into the scrotum. This condition is a fairly common problem; seen in dogs, cats and other animals . This is a well-documented genetic trait — animals with this condition should not be bred. Opinions will vary, but if your dog or cat is still cryptorchid (one or both testicles) by 6 months of age, it is highly unlikely that the testicle(s) will ever drop, and the animal should be neutered to prevent testicular tumor formation and passing on this genetic trait to future generations. If the testicle is not readily palpable in the inguinal canal (groin area), abdominal exploration is necessary to find the retained testicle.

The following services are additional/optional services and are NOT included in the price above:

I.V Fluids additional fee: Highly recommended for all ages, IV catherer is placed in vein of pet before sedation and fluids are giving while under sedation. Providing an IV is helpful in case of emergencies and to keep pet hydrated.

Microchiping additional fee: Useful if pet gets lost. This can be done at anytime, but the needle is big and painful. It is preferable to do it while sedated.
