Neutering side effects?

Hi all,

Thank you for your responses. But our dog's appetite patterns have changed since the neutering that was our first concern. We are also concerned because he is now shedding hair like crazy and the weather has not gotten warmer but actually cooled off.

We did think of worms but there don't seem to be any in his stools but we'll have a sample examined by a vet.

Is the excessive hair loss and increased appetite part of a hormonal shift caused by the neutering? Or...any other thoughts?

I thought that weight gain usually happened to female dogs after spaying and that males usually stop peeing and marking as much. But are there other side effects?
