I have a 6 mth old male teckel and was wondering when is the best time to castrate him.
Thank you

I would think at six months it is safe, but best to check with your vet.

Vets will neuter dogs at six months of age and some may neuter sooner. Welcome to pets.ca btw ~ we would love to see pictures of your Doxie and hear more about him.

That's okay Chico I had to Google "teckel" to find out that a teckel is a hunting Doxie. :o
