There are medications from the vet that can shrink the prostate gland, but the dog will need to be on the medication for life. The alternative is castration. One of my GSD`s was on medication for an enlarged prostate gland when he was 9 y/o and he live to 15 y/o with no further problems.

You do whatever the vet suggests which is normally castration and presuming that a tumour has been ruled out.

If he's having trouble having a BM, he will soon be very far from 'normal'. Yes, he needs to be castrated. Be advised by your VET.Source(s): We had two old boys with enlarged prostates and both were castrated after which they were fine.
