SPAYING AND NEUTERING

 

 ResearchBreeder.com® opposes laws that mandate the spaying/neutering of dogs. Spaying/Neutering are major surgeries and the decision to spay or neuter a dog should be made by the dog’s owner in conjunction with their veterinarian. Recent scientific studies demonstrate that spaying/neutering, particularly before a dog is fully mature, may result in detrimental longterm health impacts. In light of this information, RBC encourages breeders, owners and veterinarians to consult on the appropriateness and timing of spaying or neutering an individual dog.
