Spay/Neuter

Spaying or neutering your dog has health benefits, in addition to helping with pet overpopulation.  Neutering your male pet helps prevent testicular cancer and certain prostate problems while spaying helps prevent mammary gland tumours/cancer and uterine cancer. Most female dogs will go into heat by 6-8 months of age, for indoor large breeds doggie diapers may need to be considered.
 
Spay or neuter your puppy at 6 months of age if under 50 lbs., and at 12-18 months, if over 50 lbs. This is because research has shown a trend towards orthopedic/bony cancer and early spaying/neutering in large breed dogs.
