Pet Dog Neutering – Canine Sexual/Social Behavior Changes FAQ Report Launched

Share this news:

My Best Bark, an online educational resource for all things related to pet dogs, has launched a new report about the sexual behavior of neutered canines.

The latest report, titled “Can Neutered Dog’s Ejaculate,” seems to ask a simple question, but the answer is more complex. Neutering an animal can create a whole range of changes in their behavior, and the report details a number of ways they can be affected.

Neutering a dog involves the surgical removal of the animal’s testicles while leaving the sac intact. This prevents the animal from reproducing, as well as the range of behavioral changes it often causes. The new resource explains that dog owners may disagree about whether these effects are beneficial or not.

The majority of the changes observed in neutered dogs relate to their sexual behavior, and most animals remain largely unchanged in other areas. It is fairly common for a neutered animal to be less interested in mating, though some animals will still try regardless. Some dog owners have found that neutering their pets stops their sexual behaviors entirely.

While there is always some risk when performing a surgical procedure, it is very uncommon for a dog to suffer any serious issues from being neutered. The surgery itself has become very commonplace and well-practiced, and the largest risk to the dog is usually from the anesthesia used during the operation.

Neutering pets is primarily done to prevent them from reproducing, as a way to help prevent overpopulation. In the United States alone millions of canine pets are abandoned every year. Rescue centers often find there is no viable solution other than euthanizing a large number of the animals, who are never likely to be adopted due to the excess of dogs available to the public.

Canine experts have also documented a second benefit to neutering pet dogs—the elimination of testicular cancer, and a reduction in the chances of prostate cancer. These cancers do not often affect dogs until later in their lives, but they are often fatal once they have had time to develop. Neutering has also been shown to lower the risk of perianal tumors and hernias.

My Best Bark is known as an excellent resource for useful guides on caring for canine companions. They regularly publish educational information about dog grooming, health, and products. They also have a range of rescue stories about dogs who have been saved from unhealthy or unhappy situations.
