    Also, estrogen and testosterone play a role in the closure of the long bones. If removed prior to this, the long bones continue to grow, and the dog can end up with very long legs; not so noticeably...

    There have been studies in several breeds, Rotties, Goldens, Labs, and Vizlas, with similar results, although there are some breed differences. Here is a quote from the study on Goldens:

    Yes they can eat whatever they want at this stage!

    Only thing to watch with liver is loose stools.

    Beef, pork, and lamb liver is also usually well received!

    OP I have used the ones you linked to (I think thy were called "Chinook" back when I bought them) and they worked well.

    Of course there is nothing wrong with killing and eating a problematic rooster (at least, in my book).

    But, if you visit these chicken forums, or know anybody that has "pet" chickens, they don't...

    The hormone implants were done frequently years ago, but were discontinued due to concerns about human health effects. They were estrogen, there may be some reason to use progesterone, instead, but...

    I couldn't agree more!

    The $30 was actually from a vet, who I would assume would not do surgery without anesthesia. Probably a chemical castration via hormone implant.

    Just to add, husband did castration of ring doves under anesthesia! He tells me he was asked to castrate an adult rooster By a colleague in the Netherlands, where he did his post-doc, since he was...

    I must admit, I could not resist doing a quick Google search for "behavior in castrated adult rooster".

    I was surprised at the lack of good info! No doubt if I went to a library at a university...

    OP, perhaps your friend might research whether castration in adult roosters might be likely to eliminate sexual and aggressive behavior to hens. Perhaps her local vet school or extension service...

    That's what I would consider, too, OP. Decide upon a breed, then go to a responsible breeder who health tests, raises the puppies with optimal socialization and health care, etc. You would have to...

    Chances are, these labish puppies will be wonderful companions to whomever adopts them, with both humans and other dogs.

    Usually puppies benefit behaviorally by being with their dam. Is the mastitis still not resolved?

    I believe I saw a health survey on Golden Retrievers that showed a much shorter lifespan than I had thought, maybe seven years as a mean age of death? Mostly cancer, lymphoma, hemangiosarcoma,...

    Best way I've found to get them used to it is to first have the ramp flat on the ground, lots of treats for walking on it. If you use clicker training this is a great time for it.
