    18-24 months. Wait until the dog is fully grown to allow him to reach his full adult potential and prevent join issues.

    safe after 6 months. There are benefits to waiting until the dog is done growing (18-24 months) should you chose to go that route you just need to be more vigilant and careful to ensure there is no risk of "accidents".

    The pendulum is swinging on this one….more and more vets are realizing the health benefits of waiting until at least 18 months to neuter; it has to do with hormones and bone growth as well as the fact that if you want your dog to look like his sire, you don't want to neuter before full growth is reached. We are waiting until next month to neuter Angus who will be two on April 28th.

    Typo - Angus will be two on the 26th, not the 28th!
