3. Neuter early




  • Neuter early can prevent many medical problems and cancers.


  • Behaviour will be calmer, more predictable, making the dog a more suitable family pet.


  • Prevents the unnecessary costs of unplanned pregnacies and raising puppies.


  • Recovery from the surgery is generally rapid and uneventful.


  • Talk to your vet about the best time of neutering for your own pet.


To find out more about neutering check out the Dog Neutering Fact Sheet and the Cat Neutering Fact Sheet.
