- Neutering is the best thing you can do for your puppy. Here are the reasons:
Puppies who had neutering operation grow happier and healthier
If you are too fond of your female puppy, you may be interested to hear that neutering can reduce the chances of developing breast cancer, uterine cancer, and ovarian cancer. It also reduces the likelihood of uterine infection. In addition, it prevents risks associated with unplanned pregnancy. Some veterinarians prefer sterilizing females before their first seasons, and some physicians oppose it; therefore, you should talk to your veterinarian about timing.
If your puppy is a man, you should know that neutering can prevent testicular tumors and prevent prostate problems. It also reduces the possibility of permanent tumor and hernia.
Benefits to you
The obvious benefits of neutering your puppy to you and your family is that you will never have to deal with unwanted puppies. However, it has other advantages. Males sterilized early in life are less aggressive, less distant from females during anger, less likely to determine their area with urine, and possibly less likely to climb furniture or your legs.
The neutering of a female puppy will stop stray males camping in your garden and reduce the willingness of the female dog to wander.
Factors that may worry you about neutering
Despite all these strong evidence to support sterilization, you may also have some concerns. If you wish, let’s review a few common concerns:
Concerns about your puppy who had an operation
Nobody underestimates an operation of the puppy. however, it is important to know that sterilization is a routine procedure that is statistically extremely safe. Medical benefits exceed all risks.
Will my puppy get fat?
There is no necessity for your puppy to gain weight. Just remember to adjust the amount of food you give it to the activity level. Or, when you are one year old, you may want to consider replacing the food with a low-calorie food.
My puppy’s personality will change
Only in a better direction! It will be less aggressive and less likely to wander and urine (determine the area with urine).
What does it contain?
For this procedure to be performed, your pet will need general anesthesia.
For men, the operation removes both testicles; in females, it involves removing the uterus and ovaries, or only the ovaries.
Normally, your veterinarian will ask you not to give your puppy food or water for twelve hours before the intervention.
You will probably be able to take your puppy home on the same day; but if his drowsiness is too high, it may need to stay a little longer.
Your veterinarian will advise you to give your puppy a light food in the evening and can give such a food.
When your puppy returns home, he will need a few days of rest and more love and attention. You should not let it jump around or bite your stitches. All exercise should be ‘just a light exercise’ and should be accompanied by your partner. Your veterinarian will give you more advice on how to care for him and will give you information on when to bring your puppy for post-intervention control. Usually, you will be asked to go 10 days after the intervention to check the stitches and, if necessary, remove them.
