|meli_ssa4||Just called and schedules Darwin's neuter. I was quoted $320 for the neuter and exploratory surgery to find his testicle. Glad I don't live in other areas where the prices is a lot higher. I would have to save up forever to get it done. I couldn't imagine paying as much as some people have stated.|

Worth noting - they charged me based on the weight of the dog. If you want a cheaper cost, then maybe it's worth looking at getting him done while he's smaller. I opted to let him fully mature before getting him fixed, but it's entirely your decision.
EDIT: I had no idea I'd already responded to this thread ages ago. Oops, sorry if I sound like I'm repeating myself.

Wow, my quote was actually $683.00 before tax, which I am 100% sure there will be as nothing is free in this world, and I am in Ontario..... Maybe I should go to NB for the neuter?

|meli_ssa4||Wow neuters and spays seem to be expensive in the US. I paid just over $200 for a spay. and the Neuter for Darwin was quote quite a bit less than that, but was told it would be the same price as the spay because he has a retained testicle. Plus I get 10% off because I am in their puppy program. He is almost 9months and it doesn't look like it is going to come down. I am waiting until he is over a year before I go ahead with the surgery.|

My Vet said it was perfectly fine to wait until he was 18 months old to neuter. Other members on here were told they could wait until 24 months of age to neuter.
The reason why the price is so high is because they have to go in and find the missing ball.

|Debanneball||My boy is 7 months, one retained testicle.. I would like to hold off until April if possible. I am thinking surgery..stiches..snow..wet.. The vet would like to do it at 8 months, quote was just under $700.00. I am perplexed, but I want whats best for my boy.|

|Magwart||We just had one in rescue that was in the abdomen, neutered at 9 mo. The surgery was very expensive, even at a vet that normally does not charge a lot for a neuter. The reason is that it was very hard to find it in the abdomen because it was so deformed and shrunken up. They were worried enough about what it looked like when they finally found it to send it off to a lab to look for cancer cells -- thankfully the test came back negative.|

The testicle can still drop between 6-8 months of age.
I just got my male neutered at 18 months old. I wanted to wait as long as I could because I wanted him to get as close to maturity as possible before neutering him and taking away his horomones.

My little guy is just over 4 months and still has one testicle which has not dropped. I was told he needed to get fixed sooner than later, however it seems many of you with this same issue waited and they dropped (some didn't).
What should I do?
