Ask Anne …

OliveWe are buying a ruby male cavalier king charles spaniel. The breeder rang today to say he had his vet check and all was good only one of his testicles still haven’t dropped. He’s 7 and a half weeks old. Do you think it will still drop or could it be a problem. Thank you.

Valerie.

    Retained testicles (mono or cryptorchidism) can certainly drop later, but may not do so and could lead to testicular cancer. If the testicle hasn’t descended by 6 months then most veterinarians will advise castration, and I would go along with that.
