Spaying and neutering your animals: Responsible pet care – Part 6

Let’s look with deep insight into a surgical procedure that has become

quite common for the life of a dog in today’s society.

Myth: Spaying or neutering your pet will prevent your dog from roaming, or from running away.

Myth: Spaying or neutering your pet will prevent food aggression.

Myth: Spaying or neutering your pet will prevent dog aggression.

Myth: Spaying or neutering your pet will reduce the chances of biting.

Over the last number of years, the pet-owning public has been conditioned to accept not only the application of this terminology, but the accompanying thought processes that are attached to it. If you own a pet, not only is this animal “broken” for possessing the very reproductive organs God created for them and are an uncontrollable, undependable, irresponsible breeding machine that will kill or maim every person who stands in their way, but you, the pet owner, are wrong and will be a social outcast for allowing the continued existence of this animal in such condition.

We must refuse the use of the terminology “fixed” when referring to the sterilization
