Not all hair loss is the same. Clinicians must explain to a dog’s human that therapy is highly empiric and is not rooted in just one mode of treatment.
I advised my client to have their dog’s testicles removed via surgery. Although one testicle was in the scrotum; the other was just superficially hiding near the inguinal area.
You might wonder why the healthy testicle also had to be removed. Cryptorchidism is an inheritable X-linked trait and, more importantly, may cause testicular tumors and cancer later in life.
