Early age desexing (EAD) is generally carried out between the age of 6-16 weeks old.In some breeds of dog (not spaniel or poodle), desexing too early can increase the risk of joint problems because it’s thought that hormones play a role in the normal development of the joints.
Desexing at any age, increases a pets lifespan and avoids a number of health issues, such as cancer and prostate problems. It also reduces the likelihood of undesirable behaviour such as aggression, fighting and urine marking.
Improves the family friendliness of our pets, who will spend less time thinking about territory, sex and raising offspring. And more time doing things with the family, running in the park and lying in front of the fire.
It used to be standard practice to neuter or spay dogs and cats around six months old when sexually mature.
Most vets were taught to do the procedure on animals of this age. And might not be confident performing it on smaller and younger animals. Our vet has been instructed in EAD and has performed it successfully for years.
According to a comprehensive study by the University of Queensland, advantages of Early Age Desexing include:
Responsible spoodle breeders desex animals before they go to their forever homes if they are a small breed not prone to joint problems, offer a lifetime guarantee to rehome pets and offer health guarantees.
We consider desexing our responsibility and know that it improves health outcomes for our puppies. RSPCA responsible breeders
The RSPCA advocates that all dogs or cats offered for sale or adoption as companion animals (rather than for breeding), should be desexed prior to transfer of ownership. EAD is performed on puppies for the following reasons:
Based on the available scientific evidence and extensive RSPCA experience performing EAD, the RSPCA considers EAD to be a safe. Buy spoodle pups who have been desexed by a responsible spoodle breeder in Melbourne.
