Neutering Age for Male Dogs
Veterinary & Aquatic Services Department, Drs. Foster & Smith

Q. How old should my dog be when I have him neutered?
 
A. In the United States, most dogs are neutered between 5 and 8 months of age. To try to control pet overpopulation, many animal shelters have started to spay/neuter all animals before they are adopted. This means they are spaying/neutering animals at a younger age, even 6-14 weeks of age. Many veterinarians in private practice have started early spaying/neutering as well.
