If you have a labradoodle puppy which has already matured into a beautiful dog you may want to him or her cut especially if you do not want to have any puppies which can be quite a handful. There is nothing to worry about since getting your labradoodle spayed or neutered is absolutely legal and as long as you go to a quality and reputable vet, you’re sure that your dog is in good hands. However, there are still a number of dog owners that do not want their dog to be cut.
You might think that you are hurting your beloved dog but the once cute and adorable labradoodle puppy has now grown into an adult dog and there are actually some advantages to getting your labradoodle spayed or neutered both to you and your dog. So if you still don’t seem to be convinced, here are six reasons why you should get your labradoodle spayed or neutered.
1.) Prevents overpopulation – You should know that around three to four million animals are euthanized annually because of their growing population and you do not want your dog to contribute to that problem so getting him or her spayed or neutered isn’t really an ethical problem. You don’t want your dog to have puppies unless you are prepared for the expenses.
2.) Has health benefits – Getting your dog spayed or neutered will help reduce the chance of your dog developing any health complications. Male labradoodles who get neutered have a reduced chance in getting testicular cancer, prostate complications, hernias, and testes infection while female labradoodle puppies who get spayed will have a reduced chance in getting uterine tumors, cysts, and mammary cancer.
3.) Helps in aggression – Mature labradoodles who are not neutered tend to be aggressive to other male dogs whether at home or outside. This can be quite inconvenient because then you would have to keep your labradoodle on a leash to make sure he doesn’t hurt other dogs. The aggression is a result of the dog’s aggression which can solved by neutering him.
4.) Prevents any sexual behaviors – Labradoodles who are mature and ready for mating display sexual behaviors such as being uneasy and you might find your male labradoodle suddenly humping your leg which can be funny but quite embarrassing especially if you have guests.
5.) Reduces any mess – Female labradoodles who are in heat will tend to have discharges of blood from her privates and this can stain your carpeting, furniture, etc. and if you do not want to have to clean up such a mess you may want to consider getting her spayed preventing any future hard to clean messes around the house.
6.) Your dog won’t roam around – Labradoodle puppies are already quite curios and love to go around but once they have matured into an adult they will tend to wander around even further in search of a mate which can be dangerous and keep you worried. If you do not want your dog to do so, get him or her spayed or neutered.
