There are so many people that keep asking whether or not to spay their Labrador Retriever. I have to admit that when we were ready to spay Dakota, my aunt went into a tizzy about how we shouldn’t spay her because she was a purebred and we should at least get one litter out of her. For us, it was more about protecting her from any future deadly illness then having puppies. Sure, she would have made an excellent mom but luckily we did spay her at 6 months old because when she was just under 2 years old, she was diagnosed with Canine Hip Dysplasia (CHD). No responsible breeder will ever breed a dog with CHD.
With all the questions surrounding spaying and neutering dogs, I finally sat down and wrote an article about spaying and neutering. It is my hope that dog owners will get the facts about spaying and neutering their dogs; from surgery and benefits to myths and facts so they can make a responsible decision that best suits their family.
Read the article here and let me know what you think.
