It’s hard to know when to spy or neuter – or if you should at all. Here is the best veterinary advice for your bulldog.
So you decided to spawn or neuter your bulldog, but when?
It is often said that your dog should be cured or finished (a name that bothers me, because, decidedBroken, which means a bit! Usually on the recommendation of a veterinarian.
I know that when Indy was young, I was told: “Six months, at the point” – which is common advice in the United States and Europe. If you ask the internet (ie Facebook), they usually say recommendations later and at least twelve months.
But is that also true? Or is it based on any kind of science?
With this conflicting information, how do you want to know? Trust your doctor? As your family has always done. Or trust Rando on the Internet who knows it all.
None of this seems like a good idea when rumors are spread about the possible consequences of these procedures that one of the few terrible illnesses and diseases a dog may face; The result is.
Fortunately, research has come forward that is not just a size specific, but a specific breed for 35 generations! So, here we are going to discuss the ideal times for spying or neutering your dog.
First of all, let’s do some home capping …
What is neutering?
This is the surgical castration of a male dog – usually by removing its testicles (sorry for the inconvenience! Are important for development – emotionally and physically.
Like neutering, spina bifida is a form of surgical castration that removes the ovaries and often the fallopian tubes with it. This means that your baby cannot grow, but it also means that she is missing some important hormones.
This procedure can be done at an additional cost in keyhole surgery, although it is much better for recovery times.
Men – It’s up to you
Woman – It’s up to you
Unfortunately, the study does not have such a large sample of English bulldogs that there is a big tendency to say. Firmly Which way is it with the Bulldogs unfortunately – definitely some places to avoid? But we can go down in it!
What are the risks?
The study says that this is a brief overview of the damage done to the breed, depending on when their surgical castration (spay or neutering) was performed. The purpose of providing this information is to provide you with all the information you need to make the best decision.
|Risk of malfunction.||Risk of cancer.|
|Men||Less than 6 months.||15||0|
|Men||6 to 11 months.||5||11|
|Men||12 to 23 months.||3||3|
|Men||2 years to 8 years.||3||6|
|Woman||Less than 6 months.||18||0|
|Woman||6 to 11 months.||9||4|
|Woman||12 to 23 months.||10||0|
|Woman||2 years to 8 years.||9||2|
- 2 in Persistent women developed Piometra.
- Urinary incontinence was 0 in early Spyde women.
- Memory cancer was persistent in 1 and 2 sp in women aged 2-8 years.
I think the important thing we can take from this is that these dogs do not do well with procedures performed in less than a year – the combined rates of problems at this stage are much higher than in later life. There are more.
However, there is some truth in the traditional ‘spa and neutr’ to prevent cancer – at least according to the statistics. This number is definitely in favor of boys, isn’t it? I find it very interesting when I go through all these results for these blogs – but there are often gender differences where boys Think Being healthier than girls, or vice versa.

What if you are doing what I am doing and looking at this research and reconsidering? It is good to know that other options are available.
Yes! Assuming that these problems are due to a lack of hormones (which is definitely a problem!) – there are some ways to maintain hormones but not easy growth.
This is a surgical removal of the uterus and only. Go Of the Philippine tubes! Removing them means that your baby is without the ability to reproduce – however – as she maintains her ovaries, hormones will still be produced and this should mean that her The level of risk is the same as that of an intact woman – without the risk of pyometra! Although, is there a risk that growth may persist? Which can be very dangerous if a man tries to have sex with her.
Hard to find your bulldog?
Dogs work hard!

Tubes that run through tests are called Go to Differences – These are things that are cut or removed, for example. It releases its hormones (and possibly the desire to breed as a result) but it also means that your dog must have the same risk factors as the whole male.
Did you know that surgical castration is not legal in Norway? As a result, it is more common in Sweden, Denmark and Norway. Chemical Castration This is an injection that your dog should take every six months to increase testosterone levels. Drops to half. Which is useful for your dog in a temporary neutron. This means you can actually test what can be done with your dog and how it is often used in the UK and US – but not with your dog through a surgical procedure. What a wonderful way to screw people over.
the study “Assistance in deciding the age of neutering for 35 breeds of dogs: joint dysfunction, cancer and urinary incontinence“(Hart BL, Hart LA, Thugpan AP, Volts NH) was released in July 2020 – it covers 35 different races – and a separate scientific paper for mixed races. A total of 15,414 dogs were tracked during the 15 years.

- Disorders including:
- Including cancer
General views in the study
I find it incredibly interesting that there is a specific deviation from race. Before that, I was so busy at camp that it was just a matter of variations for the dogs. Brackets of different sizes – But that doesn’t seem to be the case.
For example, a male Labrador (for which I would assume he was no different from a boxer) actually gets the best results when neutered at 6 months – yet women prefer a slightly older age. (When should I spin or neuter my Labrador? Well here it is!).
So it’s really worth doing your own research on these things.
as usual? Not enough information to make a fully informed decision (for variables!) But, you can definitely get a good idea of it.
It is worth noting that this study is an invaluable guide – and one of the most solid pieces of research – it does not take into account many of the factors that Will imagine Should be considered. The boundaries I see are as follows
- Multiple terms not recorded if they fall into the same category,
- Genetics not considered,
- The living conditions were not considered,
- Food quality was not considered,
- Dog exercise was not considered,
- The physical condition was not assessed because it had been studied before and no strong correlation was found between the physical condition and the joint problems.
The biggest thing I can say is that while it is a scientific recommendation when to remember your boxer at the end of the day it Is Your decision. Only you, as the parent can know for sure. So, do your best – you’ve already found an extraordinary resource – just keep reading.
