Did you know there is a reversible, alternative to surgical castration which offers the same benefits without surgery.
Research has shown a growing change in the attitude of pet owners towards permanent castration. Current research has shown that 25% of pet owners are concerned or very concerned that neutering could be harmful for their dog1. The permanency of surgery has been cited as the reason why 67% of owners with entire male dogs have not yet opted for the procedure2.
Entire male dogs tend to urine mark more frequently to mark out their territory. Sometimes this can lead to inappropriate urination inside the home.

Castration significantly reduces the chance of many prostatic diseases and reduces the risk of some cancers.
Unwanted social behaviour
Castration may help in the management of some cases of unwanted social behaviours. Always discuss your dog's behaviour with a veterinary professional.
