The pet information channelSpaying or Neutering Your Dog-Get The Facts... Be Responsible The pet information channel

Bringing a new puppy or dog home is a huge commitment and a three-fold responsibility. You now have a commitment to your dog, yourself, and to your community. Spaying or neutering your pet is just another responsibility that you must think about when bringing a puppy or dog into your home. And, if you've already brought one home, the time to start thinking about you and your pet's future together is now.

Unless you are a professional breeder, there is no reason not to have your dog spayed or neutered. Let's take a look, quickly, at the differences of each.

Spaying vs. neutering
A female dog is spayed and a male is neutered. The operation is a removal of the animal's reproductive organs. The operation tends to be a little more expensive for female dogs as the veterinarian has to make an incision and sew up the animal's lower abdomen. In a male dog, however, the scrotum is opened and the reproductive organs are removed. The operation is also a little quicker for male dogs. The age and health of your dog will cause recovery time to vary.

A long time ago in the United States, older dogs were the only one's spayed or neutered as they had a greater chance of survival than puppies. However, with advances in sterilization, the operation is usually done when a puppy is around six months of age. Some veterinarians will do the operation a little sooner, around three to five months. Older dogs can also be spayed or neutered, but you should talk to your vet about the appropriate time, especially for female dogs. The operation should occur well after a heat cycle (Estrus).

There are many benefits to spaying or neutering your dog. Female dogs undergo a heat cycle for six or seven days, three times per year. While female dogs, unlike cats, remain somewhat controllable during Estrus, it will save you headaches, clean up, and every male dog in the neighborhood coming over for a visit to your front yard. Spayed or neutered pets live longer, happier and healthier lives. Spayed dogs (females) have no chance at developing uterine or ovarian cancer, as these organs have been removed. Studies show that spayed animals have a less likely chance of developing breast cancer.

Neutered dogs (males) are less likely to wander off and explore. The dog will also be less aggressive in his play or when outside on his own. He will not play as rough, nor will he bite as often. This, of course, all depends upon the training your dog receives as well.

Spayed or neutered dogs tend to be more affectionate and loving. They usually display calmer temperaments and are more enjoyable to play with and be around. Neutered pets are less likely to urinate on every tree or post they pass. Does it cause weight gain?

Some people believe that spayed or neutered animals tend to have problems with weight gain. While spayed or neutered animals tend to be more docile, there is no relationship with the surgery and weight gain. In other words, it all depends upon proper playtime (exercise) and diet, not whether your pet is spayed or neutered.

There are many places that you can contact regarding information or to schedule an appointment for your dog. Contact an animal shelter, your vet or contact SPAY USA. There are grants and monies available for those who may not have the funds to pay for all of the surgery. The responsibility rests with you. This small step will mean a more fulfilling life for you, your dog and not to mention, for your community.
