My 7 yr old BLM is having prostate issues. We've decided that neutering is the best procedure now since injury caused early retirement and he will not be bred. I have gotten several differing opinions whether or not to preform a scrotal ablation with the neuter. I want to do which ever has the best outcome and is easiest on the dog in terms of pain and recovery time. Also, our regular vet hasn't preformed an ablation in 10 yrs and said we would need to go to a specialist for the ablation. Hopefully, some of you can weigh in with personal experience.
