Neutering

Reasons to neuter your pet

Reasons to Neuter Your Pet (Castrate or Spay)

  • Unwanted litters
  • Roaming
  • Territorial behaviour
  • Fighting or aggression
  • Unwelcome frisky attention
  • Reduction of the risk of prostate disease, pyometras and mammary gland disease

Downsides
Your pets metabolism will change, so if they eat the same, then they will put on weight, so sometimes a slight change of diet is require.

That's pretty much it. A very small proportion of bitches become more aggressive after speying, but this is very small, and may be linked to speying too soon after a season, and the dogs innate behaviour beforehand. It's so infrequent, we don't usually consider it.

Some owners want their pet neutered to try and quieten it down. While neutering can help to a degree, its often not the whole story, and in a lot of cases there is very little if any change.

Sources of Funding for Assistance with Spaying or Neutering
