Is Your Dog Spayed Or Neutered?

Postby Tearle » Thu Aug 31, 2017 5:53 am

My dog is spayed. We don't want her to have puppies. We want to protect her from ovarian, uterine, and mammary cancers. We don't want her getting into fights or running off to find a mate.

We are also not qualified to breed, though she has had her health certifications done (yes the real ones; OFA, CERF, cardiac, thyroid, DNA, temperament) and is suitable for breeding.

Mostly it's because she's our pet, we love her, and we want the best for her.

my dog is spayed because she is a pet who will not have puppies and i have no interest in dealing with her going into heat ...

my puppy is not neutered - yet ... his adorable teensie-tiny-testicles will be coming out january 5 on his six month birthday ... why, cuz he is a pet and i don't need him impregnating any females ... and most males could use a decrease in testosterone, probably make it a better world :O)

My female is spayed b/c I am in no way shape or form in a reputable a breeder, even though she is most likely "breed worthy" I would be doing a great disservice to her unborn puppies if I even tried to breed her and that's just not fair. Plus I don't want to ever have to deal with puppy period, selfish I know.

My male is scheduled to be neutered next week. I'm having second thoughts about it but my husband said it's best. I've read some people saying that it has no benefits and others have said we should do it. I don't think he is at risk of ever tying to a female as he is constantly under my supervision and I know that we all know how neutering will magically change your dog into a well behaved amazing pet LOL, he doesn't exhibit any behaviors that I want to/ can't change with proper training.

Add: I guess I should add that my male was bought on a neuter contract, but I have no need/desire to get his papers as I have no intention on breeding him either.

If you wish a Country with out a puppies in two decades time then it might be a well factor! I simply wish I'm no longer round to peer it. I'm definite you do not wish that both It's managed breeding we needn't NO breeding in any respect. I've owned puppies and cats for over 50 years and under no circumstances had an undesirable or unplanned clutter, or had a male sire one. I nonetheless would not routinely neuter a male puppy, however consider it larger to spay a feminine. One case of Closed Pyometra in a whole feminine used to be sufficient to persuade me of the advantages! I used to reproduce cats so realize that complete animals are not making well pets, notably men. As they're fortunate sufficient to be ready to be external cats, it is main that they're spayed or neutered. I do not consider necessary legislation ever completely paintings. There are constantly folks who might holiday them and something Peta and so forth will under no circumstances do is convince the entire international to reside via the identical regulations.

She is spayed. Because we didn't want to deal with the mess of her heat.

In the future my dogs will be intact, mainly because I want to get into weight pulling.

My b*tch is spayed because she was not breed worthy when judged against the standard, but while she may have washed out in terms of passing on her genes she is a delightful Dobermann to own.

I revisited the issue of the health risks and benefits of castrating a dog when my current male Dobermann was eighteen months old and decided that the evidence was more compelling in favor of leaving a dog with its testicles than removing them.

Castration is not a cure all for all behavioral and training woes and a competent owner can control their dog to insure it behaves in an acceptable manner and does not sire any unwanted litters.
