Say NO to NEUTICLES
What’s a Neuticle?
Neuticles are an implant procedure for pets—down there…
Taken from the Neuticles website: “Neuticles allows your pet to retain his natural look, self esteem and aids in the trauma associated with altering.”
Ranging from $150.00-$650.00 per pair, we think the money could be better spent.
What are your thoughts? Do you think an animal loses his/her self esteem? “Bark back” here or on our Facebook page.
Doctor Karen Becker has some great articles regarding Spay/Neuter on her website, healthypets.mercola.com. This article, Don’t Neuter Your Dog YET – Read This Life-Saving Information First! talks about when to have your dog and cat altered:
How seriously you take your responsibility as a pet owner is the biggest determining factor in how risky it is to leave your dog intact until he or she matures. If you are responsible enough to absolutely guarantee your unsterilized pet will not have the opportunity to mate, I would encourage you to wait until your pet is past puberty to spay or neuter.
If you are unable to absolutely guarantee you can prevent your dog from mating and adding to the shameful, tragic problem of pet overpopulation, then I strongly encourage you to get your animal sterilized as soon as it’s safe to do so.
Please note: I’m not advocating pet owners keep their dogs intact indefinitely (see below). I’m also not suggesting that shelters and rescues stop sterilizing young animals before re-homing them. Shelter organizations can’t determine how responsible adoptive pet owners will be. In this situation, the risk of leaving adoptable animals intact is simply unacceptable. Shelters and rescues must immediately spay/neuter pets coming into their care.
If you’ve adopted or rescued a dog sterilized at an early age, I encourage you to talk with your holistic veterinarian about any concerns you have for your pet’s future well-being, and what steps you can take now to optimize her health throughout her life.
There is no one perfect answer to the spay/neuter question that fits every pet, and each situation should be handled individually.
