|Comment||Thank you for the answer. Just to clarify, he's not overly heavy but the vet at the time suggested we not neuter him because he was already an adult, non-aggressive and wouldn't be around females. I've often wondered if that was the right call. All the research I've found seems to point to the fact that they will be healthier being fixed. My new vet is very good and I understand that potbellied pigs probably are not a typical appointment for him. It sounds as though the benefits of having him neutered outweigh the risks of surgery in his case. He's my special little guy, so I think I just wanted another opinion before I made up my mind.|
