CBS RADIO VET ON SPAY/NEUTER
Dr. Elizabette Cohen’s Sat & Sun 7:25 AM & PM “Happy & Health Pets” on 880AM Aug 18 explained breast cancer risk is reduced substantially if you S/N before 1st heat. Even after 1st heat, the earlier you S/N the less the breast cancer risk. (50% of such tumors in dogs are cancer, 90% in cats.) Castration 100% reduces chances of testicular cancer, ovariohysterectomy 100% reduces chance of ovarian, uterine & cervical cancer since those tissues are removed.
