Need for Dog Neutering

Published by:


Do you know what is neutering. Literally it means castration or spaying of an  animal.

Dog neutering is not only beneficial to the dogs but also for society. By just leaving the dog in the street, you are doing more harm to the society. The less cared dogs may have more chances of acquiring many infections. Some may be more zonotic in nature.

Hence, the members of society may get ultimately affected. Additionally, the dogs in packs also getting affected. Hence, whole society may be in problems in terms of health. More over, the abandoned dogs are also not properly protected.

Finally they become orphaned and street dogs. Rabies like infections may occur in them. When they bite the pedestrians, the persons may get bite injuries, in addition to the rabies infections.

But please remember that when comparing to the cost of having and rearing many puppies, the cost of neutering is less only. Hence, have a wise choice of neutering your animal always.

However, you need to accept that some money is to be spent for the payment of veterinarians and the required drugs. Postoperative care also needs to be taken care of well. This will help to avoid the chances of infection at the operated site. However, the dog is to be repeatedly taken to the concerned veterinarian for therapy.

Some times, a myth exists in many areas. The only thing that will happen due to the neutering is the response to the reproductive hormones is highly reduced in these animals. The pet dogs don’t suffer from any kinds of identify problems or suffer from other features that will affect their personality.

Most of the times, the owners may even think on whether they are interfering with the emotional status of the dog. This is not correct. Just the interference is there at the operated sites. Vigor of the dog will not get disturbed at all in any case. Hence, there is no sentimental problem in this regard.

Many may even think that by carrying out the neutering operations, the pet dogs may have more fat and become lazy also. This is not correct. Please understand that if you don’t feed correctly, any dog will get fat and become lazy too.

So, you need to provide the healthy nutrition and the adequate exercise for the dog. This will help a lot in reducing the body weight of your pet that has been subjected to the neutering operation.

Some stray dogs also attempt frequently to kill the wildlife and the birds nearby. Hence, they ultimately become the menace causing animals in the society. As a community, the dogs that are not neutered are the problem causing animals most of the times in many countries.

Different countries are having variable rules and regulations with regard to the spaying or castration of street dogs. Many animal activist groups recommend the neutering of the street dogs as a good society-care measure. By proper neutering of your dogs, you are able to pay more attention to the national economy.

Please note that many countries are spending millions of dollars in establishing shelters for the orphaned and uncared dogs in the streets and in other care-taking measures for the welfare of these dogs. Hence, the society gets highly benefited by your decision on neutering of dogs in time.

Charles McCowan was really astonished to see that his Boxer dog was kidnapped along with his truck when he came out of a store to find them missing.

He alerted the cops to find the missing truck along with his boxer. The cops promptly discovered the truck with boxer across in the road in a parking lot.

All of them including the cops get confused how the truck was parked in a perfect place. Then they sought the help of security video. Security video showed the truck moving backwards out of the store’s parking lot, and going across the street through traffic.

Police confirmed that only possibility of moving of the truck was that the dog had knocked the gear setting the truck in motion. Luckily both of them were safe even they have crossed the busy road alone. Hats off to the driving dog.
