 Spay/Neuter Compliance

Overview 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 USA, 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 US.
