Produced by the University of California, Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine, and AVAR, an instructional video tape encouraging veterinarians to perform spay & neuter surgeries on animals as young as 6 to 16 weeks of age. "Early-age Neutering: A Practical Guide for Veterinarians" provides an opportunity for veterinarians , breeders and those seeking more information regarding early-age altering to learn about surgical techniques, anesthesia, and the benefits of pre-pubertal surgery. This video is an excellent resource for breeders as well as their veterinarians.
Each year numerous puppies and kittens are euthanized due to the lack of responsibility on the pet owners part - approx 2% of the animals euthanized in shelters are purebred. By adopting an early spay - neuter policy, breeders, veterinarians, and shelter workers can make a positive difference in these statistics by making sure that the animals leaving, or in their care do not add to these numbers.
"Early-age sterilization is safe and effective. These surgeries have been performed in animal shelters for more than twenty years, and current research studies show that many of the concerns about the effects of performing surgery on young animals are unfounded. " said John R. Pascoe, BVSc, Executive Associate Dean of Academic Programs for the School of Veterinary Medicine.
