Spay & Neuter

When to spay and Neuter your Saint Bernard.


Saint Bernard Dog , per medical advice should not be altered until 18 months of age.   At 18 months is when their growth plates close.  This means they are full grown.


Many Cancers are eliminated with Spaying. If you Spay your Female before her

Spaying and Neutering Your Pet

 

  • Spaying and neutering helps your dog live a longer, healthier life.
  • Spaying and neutering reduces, or can eliminate, a number of health problems that are difficult and/or expensive to treat.
  • Neutering will decrease the possibility of prostate disease and eliminates testicular cancer
  • It helps to reduce companion animal overpopulation. Most countries have a surplus of companion animals and are forced to euthanize or disregard their great suffering. The surplus is in the millions in the United States. Cats are 45 times as prolific, and dogs 15 times as prolific, as humans.They do not need our help to expand their numbers; they need our help to reduce their numbers until there are good homes for them all.
  • Sterilization of your cat or dog will increase his/her chance of a longer and healthier life. Altering your canine friend will increase his life an average of 1 to 3 years, felines, 3 to 5 years. Altered animals have a very low to no risk of mammary gland tumors/cancer, prostate cancer, perianal tumors, pyometra, and uterine, ovarian and testicular cancers. Credit: (SPCA)

Spaying or neutering is GOOD for your dog

 

  • Spaying and neutering helps your dog live a longer, healthier life.
  • Spaying and neutering reduces, or can eliminate, a number of health problems that are difficult and/or expensive to treat.
  • Spaying greatly reduces the chance of mammary cancer, especially if your dog is spayed before her first estrous cycle, and also eliminates the possibility of uterine or ovarian cancer.
  • Neutering will decrease the possibility of prostate disease and 

***  Altering your pet before they are full grown can have a negative impact on your pets health.   Joint, ligaments, primarily knee injuries are common etc, the list is long.    Don't do it until you have to.  Hormones are not only about making babies.  Just ask yourself if you would have grown properly and developed to your full potential without hormones.   Don't expect that your pet can do what cannot be done.   Hormones play a huge role in development.   

  If you think that a bit of blood on the floor is a nightmare then I think it might not be a smart choice to get a dog.

Wait until your pet is 18 months is what is recommended because they will be full grown.

  Males do get exceptionally big.   They can weight over 200 pounds.   They can easily be bigger and stronger than a person. 

 They are strong and if there is a female in heat there can be no stopping. 

 The time in which you neuter your Male is dependent on behavior.   If you should experience any behavior changes then it would be my suggestion to have the Male neutered right away.

Being Responsible is taking your time and training.







 






Your pet should be trained at an early age and trained by a professional.   If they are not then you are being irresponsible and we would prefer that you do not get a puppy from us.

We do not want to hear how you have given up your pet.   We do not want those stories.  We want much much more


 for our puppies.   Why, because our puppies matter.

They do not ask for much, premium food, love and care
