“Jackson” is 6 months old and he was at the hospital last week to get neutered. Jackson had a unique circumstance because he was cryptorchid. This means that his testicles did not descend from his abdominal cavity as they should have. Not neutering a cryptorchid pet is dangerous because it increases the pet’s risk for cancer later in life. This is another reason why it is important to spay and neuter your pet.
