    Excellent informative book!

    As a breeder, I use the details in this book to educate all my puppy families about the need to delay spaying and neutering, rather than falling into the vet-recommended trap of "do it by 6 months old." If this book were available in bulk at 50% pricing, I would give a copy to every new puppy family to help drive home the point.

    I love this book. I am already loaning it to friends. It is a short version of a lot of research by the author. It breaks down all the points and gives pros and cons. Well done! If you love your dog you must read this. Dogwise also shipped it promptly.

    Should I Spay or Neuter My Dog

    Posted by Helen on 12th Feb 2019

    I had been hearing a lot about this new information and wanted to know all the facts so I could present them to a breeder who insists her pet quality pups get spayed/neutered prior to 6 months. I may have to buy her a copy. It is all well presented with charts and information so one can know all the pros and cons of it all so that you can make your own informed decision .

    Should I Spay of Neuter My Dog?

    Posted by Jeff Swackhamer on 19th Jan 2019

    This great resource sheds light on the pro's and con's of altering a dog. Most veterinarians are either not aware of the long term health implications of spay and neuter or they elect to keep their clients in the dark. I believe responsible dog owners should be educated about the potential consequences of upsetting their dog's endocrine system by altering their dog and then be allowed to make an informed decision regarding what's best for them and their dog. My only complaint is the cost. I wish it were cheaper so it would be easier to provide a copy to each of my puppy buyers. Any chance of a discount for bulk orders?

    Very Informative

    Posted by Deb on 16th Jan 2019

    I thought this book was well designed and full of useful information on the subject. Spelled out in layman's terms and presented so anyone can understand the physiology lesson. A must read for all dog owners and especially if you have a puppy.
