What Does Spay and Neuter Mean?

Spay and neuter are the terms used when talking about ‘fixing’ a female or male dog. When you spay or neuter your dog you take away the dog’s ability to reproduce. The dogs will still want to mate and even ‘hump’ other dogs, but they will not be able to produce pups. Most veterinarians recommend spaying or neutering dogs when they are around six to nine months of age. Some vets will neuter or spay dogs around eight weeks of age if the dog is healthy. When you purchase a puppy through a pet store or adopt a puppy through a shelter, the cost or adoption fee most often includes first time vaccines and spaying or neutering. Dogs that aren’t going to be bred or shown professionally are often spayed or neutered. If you’re wondering if you should spay or neuter your dog, talk with your Covington, GA veterinarian.
