Jake and Treacle have been booked in for their big boy op on Monday. Could anyone tell me if they will be ok to mix with the girls immediately or if it takes so long for them to be fully sterile? I'm sure the vet would tell me but I'm just thinking ahead!

You need to wait 3-4 weeks before they can go in with any girls

Why is this if they remove the testicles (I'm assuming they do?), surely they've got no baby making equipment left?

Can't give you a scientific answer but all the sites i've been on say to keep them seperate for at least 3 weeks. I presume it it may be that the sperm may still be in the tubes they don't remove and can live for a while in the body.
