In general, are unaltered male dogs healthier?
I'm specifically commenting on males, because I know that females should be fixed after 2 years to prevent illness/death. At least, this is what the vet told us after our female needed an emergency hysterectomy due to a severe uterus infection >.>
But in male dogs, at least, are they generally healthier if they aren't fixed? I ask because I have a beagle who will be 10 in June, and he looks younger and more fit than many other beagles (that I've seen) the same age. He hasn't been altered, and I'm just wondering if that may have something to do with it.
