I did my first castration today, and I'm looking for feedback. I was taught by the vet, read about it on here, and had my husband help who has done piglets years ago. So I cut through the sack and popped out the testicles just fine, but when I tried to jerk them, I couldn't get them to come away. I couldn't really find an obvious cord, so I just sawed away far from the ball part. What came away looked like an intact testicle. My husband said I did it right. There was some bleeding. It seemed to me the bleeding was coming from the cords which I never got a good look at. it would fill the sack and the where the sack had clotted would open back out. My husband said it was not too much bleeding, and that some bleed more than others. But there continues to be a little bit of blood on the straw or on his legs. Am I just being a nervous Nelly or is there something I could have done better? He was two weeks old. I meant to do it at a week old, but he was so tiny I didn't think it would hurt to wait.
