• If neutered: Will my dog stop growing? Will his personality change? Will he suffer during recovery? If not neutered: Can he play with other dogs? Will he be unhealthy?

    Hi Karla,
    I recommend that you talk to your local veterinarian about your questions. In most cases neutering will not affect his personality. There can be some potential concerns on growth depending on his breed, age, and size. Your vet knows your pet and they can talk to you about these concerns and give you the best advice on this.
