neutering my male Rottweiler pup

what is the best age to neuter my male rottie?

Neutering a male dog not only prevents them from fathering puppies, it also provides protection against reproductive order tumors, cancers and other conditions.

To get the maximum benefits of this protection, you should have your pup neutered between 4 and 6 months of age.

There is no age at which it MUST be done, and can be done earlier (if your vet agrees), or later (even much later) – but the best health benefits are obtained by neutering before 6 months.

Hope this helps. Best of luck with your pup.

Neutering NEW
by: Diane

My vet recommended neutering no earlier than 18 months if possible due to necessary testosterone levels for bone development.

Your recommendation to neuter rottweiler pups before 1 year old could prove to be very deadly. There have been numerous studies that show that Rottweiler’s, in particular, who are neutered before they are 1 year old have a quadrupled chance of contracting bone cancer, which is almost always fatal. I would recommend that you revise your information to recommend neutering or spaying at 1 year or older, prefably 15 to 18 months old.
