dvm (7)The staff at AAC encourages spaying and neutering not only to promote pet population control but for the medical and mental benefits as well. Did you know that a female dog spayed before two years of age has almost no chance of mammary neoplasia, whereas 1 in 4 unspayed dogs or those spayed over two years of age will get some form of breast cancer? Intact males are prone to prostate problems and testicular cancer? We encourage you to discuss the best time to spay and neuter your pet with one of our doctors on an individual basis.
