Hi all,

My German Shepherd Jacko (1 year 2 Months) got his neuter surgery on 4/19/18 by the Humane Society, and he’s been recovering for quite a while now. I’ve just noticed now that there seems to be one testicle still there! One of the sacs is empty, but the other one has a lump in it, which I think might be a testicle. It doesn’t seem to be swelling. Is it possible that the vet forgot to remove both, or she/he purposely did? Do any of you know why? Or is neutering the removal of one testicle only?

Thanks!

Most likely post surgical swelling and scar tissue... if so, it will continue to shrink.

If it is indeed a testicle you get the bonus benefit of testosterone. Since they neuter any male as soon as they come in, most likely he has surrendered them both.
