"I know this will cause a lot of people a lot of upset here but both my boys are neutered and I will continue to neuter any dogs that will come into my care. This is not only for piece of mind but also because to keep a dog intact if I have no…"

"I've never had a male Irish, but one alternative to consider for a female, especially for those of us in the US, is the Ovary Sparing Spay. Years ago, my first Irish Setter had an OSS, and so still had hormones and mild (almost unnoticeable)…"

"Here in the US we are very much backwards from Europe in terms of neutering. Here in the US there is a stigma that you are an irresponsible pet owner if you don't neuter your pets. That might also be due in part to irresponsible pet owners…"

"Right, Julie, I see you're from Washington, US so I don't know your laws. Here in Ireland we can put fences up in our backyard if we want. We once visited a sheep farm with an electric fence and after one attempt at trying to get through…"

"Finn, Thanks for your comment. That's very interesting. Sadly we live in a neighborhood where no fences are allowed. We are putting in an electric fence and hoping that will keep him home, as well as being supervised. Feeling better and better…"

"Hi Julie We were advised by many members on this forum not to neuter our setters because of the physical/mental affects and so we didn't. Recently we met a six-year old IRWS who had been neutered and were shocked by its appearance. Bad coat, no…"

"Honestly, my gut is to leave him intact. We've always just gone along with whatever the vet suggested but enough years of petownership have given me the confidence and experience not to do that any more. I don't care about any physical…"

Welcome to ES, Julie. There are plenty of experienced members on here to give advice and answers to all your questions. In the meantime you might want to use the search engine on the forum and blog tabs on top of the page. There is a wealth of information on there. Tell us about your setter. Best wishes. James.
