In this video, Dr. Adar of Video VetChat discusses why it’s important to spay or neuter your dog.
When should I spay my female dog?
We recommend spaying your dog as early as 4 months, and can spay up to 7 months. We recommend spaying prior to your dog’s first heat to avoid risk of pregnancy. Spaying your dog also prevents risk of uterine infections as well as mammary cancer.
When should I neuter my male dog?
Male dogs should be neutered as early as 4 months old and up to 1 year of age. We recommend neutering your male dog to prevent risk of fights due to territorial behavior as well as to prevent health risks from testicular cancer and prostate health.
