Wondering how spaying and neutering could be affecting your pets health?

Wonder why veterinarians are seeing more ACL injuries, especially in big dogs?  Why are they seeing less mammary gland (breast) and prostate cancers but MORE malignant cancers like lymphoma, osteosarcoma, and hemangiosarcoma?  Why are so many dogs overweight or obese and why is it so difficult for them to lose weight?  Why are they seeing more immune mediated disease?  Why are there more behavior problems instead of less with more dogs being spayed and neutered?  I’ve wondered these things for years and now I have an answer.  The early spays and neuters that were meant to improve the health of dogs, have actually lead to some negative consequences.  Please listen to this podcast by Radio Pet Lady Network and then have a conversation with your veterinarian.  You may be surprised to learn that he or she isn’t aware of any of these findings and that they haven’t changed any of their recommendations as far as spaying and neutering go.
