No difference in appearance
by: Tressie

Before more progressive times, the testicles were removed entirely, scrotum and all - actually they were yanked out.

Nowadays most vets slit the scrotum and just remove the testicles and tie things off. Hence, you will still see a scrotal sac, which if recently done may be swollen from fluid or filled with blood. Blood filled sacs appear to be more common with the giant breed dogs. The blood should get reabsorbed and the sacs will shrink in size over time.

If he clearly shows sign of continuing pain or the scrotal sacs get red and looking infected best to have the vet check to make certain all is well.

males-post surgery
by: Anonymous

If the neuter was recently done, it does take some time for the excess skin to retract. There may also be some swelling which will also shrink fairly quickly. Too much swelling, call your vet to make sure your dog's OK. Most dogs act (post surgery) as if nothing has happened, but in fact you have ensured for him a much happier and healthier life span.

the look
by: Ed A from NJ

I hope you waited till he was on the other side of 14 to 16 months. Early neutering is very bad for Pyrenees. But to answer your question of it was just done he may look the same because the sack is swollen and the seaman has not yet dryer up. In a few weeks the swelling will go down and the seamen will dry up the the sack will shrink and he won't have it any more.

Why is neutering early bad for great pyr?
by: Bleu

Someone said neutering great pyr before 14-16 months of age is bad. I have my first 2 males (brothers) great pyr and they are about 6 months old. Vet is saying to neuter them now and I was wondering why the comment was made that it is bad to neuter them early, but wait until 14-16 months. Any info is greatly appreciated since I am new to owning these dogs.
