Neutering Your Dog

Follow Us on Facebook

We recommend having your male puppy neutered at 4-6 months of age.  Neutering involves removing both testicles.  Although routine, it is a major procedure, which is why we take extra precautions to ensure your puppy’s safety and recovery. There are many health and behavioral
benefits to having your puppy neutered, including:

•    Significantly reduced chance of prostate Infections and prostate cancer

•    Eliminates possibility of testicular cancer

•    Won’t be as likely to urine-mark at home

•    Can significantly reduce aggressive behaviors

His personality will not change due to neutering, and he will not get “fat” unless you over-feed him and do not allow him enough exercise!

Did you know?

Un-neutered male dogs have the highest incidence of vehicular trauma (being hit by cars) and fighting?
Since intact males are always on the look-out for females in heat, they tend to have a much stronger ‘roaming’ instinct, which can often lead them into trouble!  Many have been known to dart quickly out the door and even jump 6 foot fences to escape!
