He is a great dog, as a V you don't want to calm them down, run big. I don't want to breed him, he has seizures and bad allergies, but damn he is a good hunting dog. I don't want a couch potato, I wan't my dog just so he does not get his half sister pregnant.Brian I’m not sure about a vet that can do a vasectomy that can be reversed. If your worried that you might want to breed your vizsla at some point. My suggestion would be to have his semen frozen. Then fix him. It will usually calm him down some and make him a more pleasant dog all around. If you decide his genes are worth passing on and find the right match for him. You can then do AI. I’m sure you already know to keep his paper work with linage to help with making matches in the future if you choose too. You have a breed of dog that does not have a lot of options with genetic diversity in the US. There are a couple good vets that deal specifically with breeding. The one I deal with in Salem and there are a couple in Portland area depending on what you want to do.
Have you tried the specialty clinic in Clackamas? I don't know if they have a urologist on staff but they have a bunch of others.My wife wants to cut them off my 6 year old Vizsla because we have a female pup. I want to not, but would allow a vasectomy. Does anyone know of a vet that does this procedure on dogs?
If you are going to use this approach you may wish to do it quickly before the Supreme Court bans the use of contraceptives.I realize it is not possible to have a male dog use a condom, but an oral contraceptive like megestrol acetate for the female dog may be a better solution.
Do people love looking at their dog's nuts that much? Oh well, to each his own. Who am I to judge?
