Neutering your cat or dog should ideally be done at 2-3 months of age. However, as it is difficult to find good vets that will do them this young in Japan, you may have to consider waiting until your pet is 5-6 months old. Do not neuter your pet when it is in season (dogs must wait 4-5 months after their last season) as this can be very dangerous during surgery due to extreme blood loss. There are several benefits of early neutering:
Please note that neutered pets put on weight more easily due to the lowering of their metabolic rate. Reduce the amount of food given or change to a special type of food, such as, Weltham low calorie control.
Please consult with your vet for more advice.
|Our priority now is on housing the remaining 16 dogs from the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, many of whom have owners, but who are unable to take them back. The area (land) where the Earthquake dogs are now housed, has been rented for many years but now due to changing circumstances of the owners, is due to be returned to them. That means there is some urgency in building new kennels for them in Sasayama. Your continuing support is appreciated.|
