Burdizzo or vet castration??
This is exactly what our vet recommended.....saying that there was danger in giving them anesthesia because of the rumen..??I saw one a little over a year old get neutered...no pain killers no sedating. He was held down on the ground iodined up, sterile scalpel made a small incension on sack, the testicle was squeezed out then just pulled out by hand till cord broke, then the other testicle was done...more iodine...smeared it with some pasty stuff, sprayed it with something then turned loose. He looked dazed for a few minutes then seemed fine...he is still alive and no worse for the wear. this was 2 yrs ago. Bty, he screamed bloody murder till he was turned loose.
