    Hello Everyone, what is the recommended time period to have my male separated from my female after having him neutered. Tomorrow will be three weeks since he had the surgery and I keep hearing conflicting information.
    thanks

    three weeks should be fine
    I have heard that vets say 2 weeks, but people often wait 3 to 4 weeks just to be sure

    I usually wait 4 weeks on the rare occasions I have put a neutered boy in with an intact girl ( I spay girls as it is so important for health reasons)
    but some experienced members on this forum only wait 2 weeks
