    What do you all think about the arguments of this veterinarian?
    Makes me wonder.
    I had since 1979 and for 14 or 15 years (don't remember exactly) a big Malamute intact male, never had a health problem, visits to vets only for vaccinations, always good until he passed away at a respectable age.
    Fast forward to the years 2000, next dog was our beautiful heart dog Ella, spayed very young and died of Lymphoma at 5 and a 1/2.

    You can not make a judgement just based on your two dogs :lol: I could toss back my views based on two dogs I know of that were just the opposite. That's still not science.

    Hey!!! I didn't made any claim or took any position, I just told my little story to put the context of my experiences.

    That is why I put the video and asked yours opinions about it....that's all.

    Started watching the video, too tired had to stop but really want to see it. I have done lots of rescue, over 20 years. I'm pro spay and neuter for the general public. I work with the general public and their dogs 6 days a week. Just by watching the beginning of this video tells me this vet thinks thru emotion and not logic. I don't believe this person has set up any kind of a double blind study.
    Too tired to continue. must go to sleep now...

    I didn't swear or anything like that either.....I'm very easy going.

    By the way my dog now, Kimba is spayed too....don't worry.

    I asked opinions about the vid, if you don't watch it all is hard to give an opinion over it.

    I like all the studies she referenced about the problems seen in higher numbers in spayed/neutered dogs vs intact. From cancer to hip dysplaysia and ligament tears.

    I do think hormones play a vital role in development and it is sad that Americans are too irresponsible, very generally speaking, to have intact pets without ending up with unwanted litters. I wish vets would adopt alternative sterilization methods.
     
  12. That was a great video. Thanks for sharing.
