SIKESTON - Sikeston veterinarian Dr. David F. Morris recently returned from Saskatchewan, Canada, where he performed a surgery that is relatively new and not as common as many other veterinary operations. The surgery, which Morris is becoming known for throughout the nation, is necessary when a bull calf's testicles have not developed properly. In some cases, one testicle may be just above the flank or scrotum. The surgery corrects the problem by placing the testicle back where it belongs, Morris said.
