Juvenile Spay Neuter saves LIVES!

Is Juvenile Spay Neuter Right for Your Pet?juvenile spay neuter

We’d like to furnish you with some information to help make your decision. Juvenile spay neuter (also known as pediatric or early spay neuter) is defined as spay neuter on pets earlier than 6 months of age. Juvenile spay neuter is the best way to stem the staggering pet overpopulation problem and it allows us to combat the single largest cause of death in companion animals:  HOMELESSNESS DUE TO OVERPOPULATION

Early age spay neuter is still one of the more hotly debated issues in companion animal medicine today. It is fraught with misinformation, misconceptions and high emotions. Hopefully the debate will end as more research shows the procedures to be safe in both the short and long term, and veterinarians will then begin to embrace the concept as readily as they embrace neutering at 6 months of age.
