Q: Having my dog desexed both male and females
Question: Desexing Safe ??
I am in two minds about having my dog desexed both male and females I have heard some pretty scarey stories about dogs getting infections and distemper and dieing while having surgery.....its really turned me off having it done. can anyone help me?
Answer: Desexing Safe
Honestly, i have heard more medical problems now happen for dogs who are not desexed. And your male dog will be more 'dog park' friendly if he is desexed. There is always a risk of infection with any procedure, but it is pretty rare. I would suggest that you visit some local vets, find one that you are comfortable with and even ask if you can have a look at their surgery tables (so you can see how clean and sterile everything is) A good vet would be only to happy to describe the procedure for you. Don't be afraid to 'shop around' for a good vet, and i think once you find one you can trust, you will feel more relaxed about the whole experience. Distemper is more of a airborne virus. If your dogs have their yearly vaccinations this should eliminate any risk. Any dogs known to have the virus at a Vet, would be quarantined immediately.
