Interesting. I'm seeing the vet for my other boy this week so I guess I'll bring Puck along to have his tiny testicles checked!

He has a crusty eye. I started a separate thread about that. I'm hoping it's nothing serious. He seems in good spirits. Yeah, buddy vet trips are a good idea! I hate putting them through the stress of a vet visit but I guess better safe than sorry!

Took heathcliffe to the vets cos noticed his testicles weren't as big as they should be.Turns out they haven't descended properly.The choice of getting him neutered has been taken out of my hands now, it is dangerous for his health not to do it.It seems because they aren't out of his body completely he is at risk of cancer so it needs done.Just thought I would warn people .

How big should they be ?
