Canine Neutering: A Paradigm Shift?

Please join us for a discussion of the evolving opinion on canine neutering. Neutering has long been the standard recommendation for all pets in the United States. With newer studies suggesting an increased risk for certain cancers and orthopedic diseases in neutered pets this standard has been questioned. We will discuss the pros and cons of neutering and how this shift may be changing recommendations and practices in your clinic.
