Veterinarian resources

Here are a some articles for veterinarians, written by veterinarians.

The Kindest Cut of All (pages 47-52)
This article highlights the numbers and why a 90% compliance rate with post-adoption spay/neuter is still failure.

Overview of Pediatric Spay/Neuter
This is a great article written by vets, for vets. It dispels some of those myths about the dangers of pediatric surgery. In our opinion, as long as shelter euthanasia is the leading cause of death for cats and dogs in the United States, we should all be doing everything we can to stop that. Please ask vets to consider pediatric surgery as a temporary measure for pre-adoption animals only, and only for as long as shelter euthanasia is the leading cause of death for cats and dogs in the U.S.
