Hesitant to Alter Pup

Chocolate Pups: Dakota leading Cheyenne

Have you neutured them? Their coat is beautiful and shinny and they are not overweight. My mom is hesitant is neutering our female pup.

Many thanks.


Yes, both of my Labrador Retrievers were spayed at the age of 6 months old. This did not have any negative effect on them at all. In all honesty, it is wise to neuter or spay dogs as it reduces the risk of reproductive system cancers and other diseases linked to the reproductive organs. As you can see in our dogs, their being altered in no way made them unhealthy or fat.

We had chosen not to breed our dogs because the risk of them being taken early from us was too great of a risk. The Lab Brats are our family and their health is the most important thing to us.

I highly recommend you read this article About Spaying and Neutering Your Labrador Retriever.

It is a personal decision that every responsible pet own must make. However, if your mom is not going to breed your pup because she wants to breed the pup responsibly (to better the line of the Labrador Retriever) then she is best to speak to your local veterinarian in regards to pros and cons of altering your pup.
