What is the Best Timeline
for Spaying/Neutering My Pet?

Every pet is unique, and deserves treatment that accommodates their specific needs. With spay and neuter surgeries, we have to be mindful of your pet’s breed, age, development, and other factors. Spaying or neutering too soon—or too late—can leave your pet vulnerable to health problems. This is especially true for large dog breeds. Golden Retrievers, Labradors, Rottweilers, and Great Danes are just a few breeds that need to wait until they are a year old (or possibly older) to be spayed and neutered.

Why the delay? Larger dog breeds need more time to finish growing, and their growth is directly influenced by their sex hormones. Interfering with this process can affect your pet’s growth rate and possibly lead to poor joint development.

On the other hand, spaying or neutering your pet (regardless of breed) much later in life can leave them vulnerable to reproductive disease.
