In October I attended a Dr. Hutchinson seminar on reproduction.
It was fantastic to say the least.
Here is some very interesting information that most people are not aware of.
*The testicles are in the scrotum at 5-6 wks old
The left comes down first
IF the right testie is there and not the left - then there is cause for concern.
If the left is there, good chance the right will follow.
If you have to neuter FIND OUT WHY the testie did not come down.
If one cord is shorter than the other, then it is genetic - HOWEVER - the cord can be
wrapped around the testie not allowing it to drop.
If both cords are the same length, then it is not genetic.
Unfortunately when this happens, people just neuter the dog and decide that it is
When in fact, it could possibly be fixed when they go into neuter!
So Connie determine which testie has dropped. If it is the left, then "chances" are the
right will drop later. If the pup has to be neutered, then I would want a vet that can determine cord length, and if the testie was hung up before I decided to blame it on the
bitch or more commonly the stud dog. "
There is also a post on that thread from Dr Ed. Good info.
