A simple surgery, neutering sterilizes a male dog so he’s incapable of siring puppies. There are other significant benefits of neutering as well.
First, he’s less likely to get certain diseases, like testicular cancer and diseases of the prostate, such as enlarged prostate, prostate cysts and prostate infections. Neutered dogs will also mark less than unaltered dogs, which is a big benefit to owners.
Dogs are also likely to be calmer after neutering because there is less testosterone in their system. Lower testosterone levels means reduced or eliminated roaming, aggression, humping behavior, and any other dominance behaviors. These health benefits and behavioral changes happen whether your dog is young or an older dog.
There is a lot of debate about the best age to have a dog neutered. You’ll need to consult with your veterinarian about when to have him neutered. Make sure you follow the directions from your veterinary clinic regarding pre-surgical instructions. You should also receive detailed instructions for after care following the surgery.
