For about two weeks He has been to the vet On antibiotics Not helping Suggeting Neutering How will this help?
Veterinarian: Dr. Rachel, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

Did the vet say he had an enlarged or infected prostate gland? If so, neutering would be the cure. If not, I recommend that he have an abdominal ultrasound done to check for a bladder tumor. Did they see any crystals in his urine?
