As many of us understand, there are numerous reasons why our pets should be spayed or neutered and one of the most frequently asked questions is “When is the right time to do it?” and the answer is it depends. Spaying or neutering your pet can help avoid unwanted litter while also lowering the risk of mammary cancer and testicular cancer. Learn more about when your pet should be spayed or neutered with this info that you might find helpful.
Dogs and cats were often spayed or neutered at an early age, as soon as 6 to 8 weeks of age. But, new data shows that with our dogs, waiting longer is also helpful. Because the data and recommendations differ and are continuously changing, we recommend that you listen to your veterinarian's opinion on this first.
Depending on your dog's breed and lifestyle, your veterinarian can help you choose the best time to spay your dog.
The age at which you should spay or neuter your pet is determined by a variety of factors, including your goals for your dog and other factors. You should consult your veterinarian at Orlando, FL, where you can find the most up-to-date information, and knowledge of your pet's breed and potential disease risk can assist you in making an informed decision about the appropriate age for your pet.
