Golden retriever study suggests neutering affects dog health

A Team of researchers at the University of California, Davis examined 759 Golden Retrievers in a study finding risk for developing certain cancers and joint diseases after neutering under one years of age.

Below you can read the facts & findings by clicking the links. It is very interesting to read that they found that US pet owners spay/neuter under a year to prevent pet over population or to avoid unwanted behaviors. However in Europe Spay/Neutering is usually avoided not only by owners but by trainers and that it’s not promoted by animal trust authorities.

A MUST READ to all GOLDEN owners IMHO.
