We are getting a male Bullmastiff puppy in February. What is the recommended age to have him neuter?
never unless you need to ...... and then as old as long you can put up with whatever problem it may be causing ...... as far as having the most effect on his temperament , I believe you'd need to neuter them before puberty , which I think is a poor choice ......
Ok, thanks for your advice
I didn't neuter mine until he was 18 months old. I had a contract with the breeder that he had to be neutered and on his recommendation and our vets we waited until he was 18 months. This gave his bones a chance to grow properly. It didn't change his temperament at all, he has always been the sweetest boy.
I kept my previous boy intact up until the end, and I believe that helped him fill out into quite the specimen. General consensus with these guys is to be kept intact until 18 months at a minimum, after that time, like Marke said, "as long you can put up with whatever problem it may be causing". My boy was same sex aggro. That was day to day life, and we just lived/dealt with it.
Don't neuter before he fills out, my recommendation is 2 years.
