Spaying, Neutering, and Other Options of Pet Sterilization

Many of you know that we recommend against spaying or neutering at an early age.  Most pets are spayed and neutered at or before 6 months of age.  Below is an extremely educational, and emotional, video from Dr. Becker, a widely known veterinarian, on the truths about de-sexing your pets. It is incredibly worth your time as a responsible and passionate animal-loving pet owner to watch this very moving video as world-renowned veterinarian Dr. Karen Becker breaks down in tears in her grief over having recommended her clients neuter and spay their pups at 6 mos of age for so many years.

Here’s the difference, cosmetically, as well, of two littermates. One spayed at 6-12  mos of age, the other not spayed until after 3 years old:

 

Now herein lies the question…How else can we safely sterilize our pets and rescue animals? (and allow them to keep their hormones so they can fully grow!)

Here are some new alternative methods of sterilization in male and female dogs:

As Dr. Becker says in her video… if you are a responsible pet owner that wants the best for your dog, there are far better ways to prevent unwanted reproduction in your dog.

  1. There is plenty of great dog information on this site !

  2. Hi! I am trying to track down where to get Zeuterin. I foster a lot of pets, and folks always ask, but I found out the Ark Sciences site is down, the Zeuterin.com site if up for sale, and I can’t find out anything whatsoever online about how to reach their company, or any new company that may sell and distribute this game changer. All the articles end around 2015. Since this post is from 2017, I thought you might have new information! Please let me know!
