    What research is showing: we need to change our surgical technique (spay✂️neuter) to help lower the risk of a myriad of diseases. In this study, science points to the Luteinizing hormone (LH) that becomes disrupted after surgery.

    “Throughout most of the developed world, surgical sterilization via gonadectomy has become a common tool for combating the overpopulation of unwanted dogs as well as to eliminate the risk of reproductive diseases in pet dogs. However, if a surgical sterilization method is chosen that enables a dog to keep its gonads intact while still preventing reproduction, this may avoid the problems discussed in this article.

    Canine gonadectomy increases the risk of several non-reproductive long-term disorders caused by extremely high LH including obesity, urinary incontinence, urinary calculi, diabetes mellitus, hypothyroidism, hip dysplasia, cranial cruciate ligament rupture, aggressive and fearful behavior, cognitive dysfunction syndrome, prostate adenocarcinoma, transitional cell adenocarcinoma, osteosarcoma, hemangiosarcoma, lymphosarcoma, and mastocytoma.”

    **Sensitive subjects require sensitive contemplation. This is one of them. What we all agree with: empty shelters. Stop unwanted litters. Sometimes, the educational process of us knowing more so we can be better, means changing how we’ve done things. (sharing research, please be respectful in the comments)
