Optimal treatment for your pet requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be critical, especially if your pet does not rapidly improve. Administer all prescribed medication as directed. Alert your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your pet.

The prognosis for maintaining fertility in dogs following epididymitis and orchitis is guarded to poor. Spermatoceles, which are cystic distensions of the epididymis, are not an uncommon sequele. Breeding dogs should be examined and evaluated on a regular basis as recommended by your veterinarian to assess their status regarding fertility and sperm production.

Most patients, other than with regard to fertility, generally have a full recovery and do well.
