Q. I took my 10 mo old Jack Russel to the vet for surgery (neuter) he told me he was unable to find his testickles, what should I do.
DR. MASSIMO ORIOLES, DVM, MRCVS
A. Your dog is cryptorchid, so he has one or both retained testicles. The testicle/s may be in the inguinal area or may be still inside the abdomen.
I would strongly suggest to remove them surgically. Retained testicles are more prone to develop tumors.
The type of surgery depends on the location of the testicle/s; in both cases is not a complicated surgery and is done routinely.
