Default Neutering advice

Okay guys, following on from my thread yesterday, i'm now looking for advice on the best age to get Sammy neutered. He will be 7 months old in a few days so when would you suggest?

Also how expensive will this be, obviously I'll pay whatever it is but I just like to be prepared and organised about these things

He's actually ready now Laura. I had bloodwork done first and then the neuter, I think 55.00 for bloodwork and 125.00 for the neuter. I think??

I think you are probably looking at about 100-150 im sure Maizys spay and tear duct flushing was about 230-250!

I didnt have bloodwork done before although possibly should have.....

Thanks guys, I'd probably like to get his wee tear ducts flushed too for him if that's an option at the same time. I can start looking into it for him.

I had Pipper neutered when he was 5 months. I wanted to get him done before he started male habits. I like that he squats to pee. It cost me over $300. Everything seems to be more expensive here in Canada.

Ohhh, Riley is 18 weeks and I've only had him three. I'm not ready to think about that at 5 months. Maybe 6 or 7.

Yeah I just wasn't sure of what age was best to get it done for him. I love his puppy stage I know alot of people aren't so keen on that stage but he's always making me laugh.
