In case you hadn’t noticed, spaying and neutering our pets is being promoted as a replacement for training and responsibility!Â Oh yeah! The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) states on its website, “Spaying or Neutering Is Good for You” (seriously, that’s what it says! Just like adding food color to dog kibble is to make it look pretty to the buyer!) and that “Spaying and neutering makes pets better, more affectionate companions.“.
Better? Better than what?Â Think about this friends!Â Believe it or not, dogs can be more then wonderful and affectionate creatures without ever undergoing
surgical sexual mutilation spay and neuter. The key here is responsible care and training! How could we have forgotten this?Â Have we been brain washed maybe?
Â Please research and become informed,Â let’s make informed and educated choices for the health and lives of the wonderful animals God has gifted us with.
Below are a small collection of interesting, recent, information links, some with actual data, about the potential problems and considerations of spay/neuter (and early spay/neuter) which may helpÂ us toÂ make better informed decisions for our canine companionsÂ
Remember too that many veterinarians do not keep informed on the important updates in their fields as well as many continuing to keep the pet owner in the dark as to the potential health risks that can be brought on by removing the animal’s hormones (via spay/neuter)Â 🙁
Time for YOU to decide what is best for your pets!
