Table 3 Representation of the prostate size characteristics of the two morphological groups (homogeneous prostate and prostate with changes) from this study. To facilitate comparisons with values of intact dogs, mean prostate characteristics values of the study by Kuhnt et al. [7] are displayed as groups 3–5
