A discussion on the cruelty of castration

Ask your vet to explain the health risks vs. The good veterinarian will tell you, spaying or neutering has only one health benefit. He can't get testicular cancer and she can't get uterine or ovarian cancer.

Very few dogs get either one and that's like saying cut off your leg so you can never break it. The simple truth is there is no medical reason to remove reproductive organs from healthy animals; not in veterinary medicine nor in human medicine! Underproduction of estrogen and testosterone causes debilitating disease and premature aging in humans.

In the "dark ages" of medicine, doctors routinely and profitably ripped out reproductive organs. Today we know the truth and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy as a proven anti-aging therapeutic treatment for senior citizens has exploded. You are one day older today than yesterday.

  • Two months have passed since he was neutered;
  • Testicles are loosened from the tissue and removed as a dog is neutered.

Are there health risks in neutering your dog? Can you look your dog in the eye and explain that slicing away what makes him a him is good for him? Castration is directly linked to heart disease, myocardial infarction, strokes and cardiovascular disease, senile dementia, osteoporosis and hip fracture. Neutered dogs of either sex are at double the risk for osteosarcoma and increased incidence of urinary tract cancersRef 3.

The deadliest cancers and the most annoying problem for house dogs is at the top of the list for castrated dogs. Spaying or neutering also significantly increases the odds of adverse reactions to vaccines and inclines both sexes to alopecia, hip dysplasia, and cruciate ligament rupture.

A discussion on the cruelty of castration

You can cope with heat seasons easier than urinary incontinence, orthopedic problems, lameness, and cancer in your old dog. The real reasons for castration and hysterectomy are not so obvious.

  1. She looks him over and sees that his testicles are red and irritated.
  2. If you are lucky enough to have acquired a well bred purebred, please make an informed and loving decision.
  3. The vet has assured Nina that hormones can run wild the first weeks after a dog is neutered and this problem will surely diminish when they stabilize. There's the standby pitch about testicular cancer but the canine testicular cancer rate is so low that there are not even any statistics on it!
  4. In an American study from 1996, un-neutered dogs were highly represented among homeless or strays, and owners named behavioural problems as a reason for giving up their dogs. The answer coincides with how many vets caution owners about the inevitable health risks.
  5. The behaviour therapist favours neutering in some circumstances, preferably right after the dog reaches sexual maturity, as this can be a useful measure with regard to sexually motivated behaviour. In countries such as the USA, where the spaying of female dogs at young age is common, we rarely see mammary tumours.

That is just a profitable myth. There is no overpopulation problem. Hasn't been since the turn of the century.

  1. According to Moseng there is rarely any problem with male dogs out in the countryside, but in cities they can be stressed by all the females nearby that are in heat, or by encounters many other male dogs. As owners step away from the bonds of politically correct serfdom and demand ligation and vasectomy, safe sterilization cost will go down as more veterinarians offer healthy, hormone preserving sterilization.
  2. Nina Thorstensen and her dog Joppe on a walk in the park. She looks him over and sees that his testicles are red and irritated.
  3. Growling and barking Joppe the dog had to stay at the veterinary clinic for four days before he could come home from his surgery.
  4. Owners will no longer be forced to pay ever-increasing health costs due to the adverse effects of spay and neuter. She explains that testosterone makes male dogs tougher, and when you reduce the testosterone level of a dog that is already afraid its fear can intensify.
  5. As mentioned regarding cancer risks, spaying is beneficial for females and the same applies to males and testicular cancer.

Shelters actually import strays from offshore in order to sell them to unsuspecting families. OK, so is there any upside to slicing out the testicles of male animals? You don't have to be a vet to answer that question. Early castration promotes docility and weight gain.

There's the standby pitch about testicular cancer but the canine testicular cancer rate is so low that there are not even any statistics on it!

Should dogs be neutered?

Castration to prevent testicular or ovarian cancer makes as much sense as removing the heart to prevent heart disease! Yes, dogs and cats are legal property.

  • Also coats can become curlier and less shiny, and the dogs tend to shed more;
  • The vet concludes that the best option would be to remove the inflamed testicles because they are causing so much pain;
  • She would like to see the responsibility for the decision passed over to owners and vets, rather than having either a legal ban or mandate;
  • His health has improved but his owner Nina Thorstensen is concerned about his behaviour;
  • Two months have passed since he was neutered.

Is that why so many vets avoid informed consent? The answer coincides with how many vets caution owners about the inevitable health risks. No vet will deny that hysterectomy and castration pump up the profit margin but how many will admit that they also expect to profit from treating the myriad of health problems that follow?

And breeders are not blameless.

And requiring all pups to be spayed and neutered certainly makes no sense to the frightened, legs-crossed pet determined to remain as nature intended! Is there an alternative to castrating or spaying my pet? If you are lucky enough to find a vet who will do tubal ligation or vasectomy, ref 4. As owners step away from the bonds of politically correct serfdom and demand ligation and vasectomy, safe sterilization cost will go down as more veterinarians offer healthy, hormone preserving sterilization.

Owners will no longer be forced to pay ever-increasing health costs due to the adverse effects of spay and neuter.

  • If you are still looking for a family pet and breeders are demanding you spay or neuter, offer to pay extra to reserve the right to allow the dog to remain intact and undamaged;
  • Nina Thorstensen and her dog Joppe on a walk in the park;
  • Mosengs Dyreklinikk She adds that prostate gland problems are also sharply reduced by neutering;
  • Nina Thorstensen and her dog Joppe on a walk in the park.

Vets will still make a living, even though owners and dogs will be set free from the cruelty of surgical sexual neutering. If you are lucky enough to have acquired a well bred purebred, please make an informed and loving decision.

If you are still looking for a family pet and breeders are demanding you spay or neuter, offer to pay extra to reserve the right to allow the dog to remain intact and undamaged. It will be cheaper in the long run because you will avoid the expenses associated with castration health problems.
