Yesterday I neutered my 5 and a half month old male Chihuahua. I picked him up today from the vet.
Tonight he is humping on his regular hump toy, and he got a full erection.
Will he lose the ability to get erections later, or does this mean he will always get them even if he is fixed?
This is frustrating, since for many reasons I didn't want him getting erections, and I just paid nearly $400 to fix him.
I know there are other benefits to having done the surgery, but I was hoping it would prevent this behavior as well. That's the only reason I rushed to do it so soon, and paid the fee of this expensive vet.
Plus I have a female puppy I don't want him bothering. And since she is sick, I won't be fixing her any time soon, so she'll probably go into heat soon. I don't want him "doing" anything to her- get my drift ;)
It takes a while for the testosterone level to drop in a neutered animal, and hopefully the problem will resolve itself. Unfortunatley, I have a neutered male who tied with his mother, at the age of 2 1/2, so it can still happen. Work on the behaviour now as soon as he attempts it, with a loud noise, or a spray bottle, distraction of some sort. Don't let him even start, correct him as soon as you see the behaviour, and if I were you, I'd remove his regular hump toy!
Neutered dogs can still get erections and still enjoy the occasional hump session. It's still early days, though, so there's probably still a store of testosterone that'll dissipate, so, hopefully, it won't be as often.
I had a Dobie who, on the way home from his neutering, was humping the back of my car seat.
Just to let you know...my silkie was neutered 8 years ago and he STILL humps. I don't think the humping ever subsides!!!! It's just that now he can't reproduce!!! I hate to be the bearer of bad news!!!
I have a 4 1/2 year old Mini. Schnauzer and I am considering getting him neutured. He is a very good boy no humping or agression when around other dogs but very territorial! When I let him out he just goes and pees on every tree he comes in contact with and won't come back in until he is finished marking the yard. He also is very annoying when he is out with our spayed female . He is so territorial that when she is doing her business he is peeing on her!and rolling around in deer urine! yuck. I was wondering if I got him neutured would this behavior stop? Thanks for any help
Ok I just have to ask this...400 dollars????....to get my basset spayed it was only like 45 at the most...I'm just wondering why it was soooo much money...and about the mini schnauzer it might help a little but not as much as you'd like I'm sure because he already has the habit.
