Should You Sterilize Your Puppy?

Most people in the US are familiar with just one type of sterilization for dogs: spaying or neutering. But these are actually desexing procedures that go well beyond simply sterilizing a dog so that he or she can no longer reproduce. Desexing removes hormone-producing organs (the ovaries or testicles) that researchers are now finding are actually quite important to overall health. Studies also indicate that the earlier a puppy is spayed or neutered, the greater the likelihood of health problems later in life. Here are examples of studies evidencing some of these potential issues.
