Merlin presented back to Vetwest Wanneroo for his routine desexing at 6 months of age. Upon admission with our surgery nurse, it was found that Merlin still only had one testicle and therefore it was even more important that we went ahead with the procedure on the day to find his missing testicle and remove it. Once Merlin was safely under anaesthetic we were luckily able to find the missing testicle in his inguinal canal and quickly and safely removed it along with his other testicle. Merlin was then placed in a warm bed with lots of blankets to recover from his surgery while he was monitored closely by the nursing team. Merlin made a very quick and uneventful recovery from his surgery and it wasn’t long before he was awake and trying to play again with all of the nurses as they walked past and gave him lots of cuddles.
