Benefits Of Spaying Female Dogs
Every responsible pet owner knows the importance of having a female dog spayed especially if there is no plan of having her produce any offspring.
Female dogs that undergo spaying wont’ develop pyometra, a potentially fatal infection of the uterus. They may also have lower risks of getting breast cancer, depeding on the age the dog is spayed. An intact dog comes into heat twice a year and these times can be bothersome to everyone as she tries to escape in search of a partner and the number of male dogs gathering in the yard outside. While she is in heat, there will be some bleeding on your floor or carpet. If your intact female dog has an unplanned pregnancy, there is the possibility of an emergency C-section which can be expensive. If the mother dog has poor maternal instincts, you may also be tasked to bottle-feed her puppies.
