Why You Should Consider Getting Your Dog Neutered
It used to be easy to answer the question of whether or not you should get your dog spayed or neutered. There are many great and very beneficial reasons why you should do this while your dog is still a puppy. Dogs which have been neutered are much less likely to develop the urge to wander and will be less aggressive than dogs that are not neutered. Dogs that are neutered have also been found to live longer lives and be less likely to succumb to infectious diseases.
Female dogs which are spayed early in their life run a minimized risk of developing forms of cancer in their reproductive system and pyometra. Owners will not have to face the challenge of an animal that is in heat every six months to a year.
Dogs which are neutered also are less likely to develop the habit of marking their territory via urine marking indoors and run a decreased risk of developing prostatic hypertrophy, a condition where the prostate becomes enlarged and causes animal trouble when they need to go to the bathroom.
