I've had many, many animals spayed over the years with only one complication. I would be curious to know the reason your dogs died, as it's a relatively simple procedure with modern technology making it even safer. I understand that a few dogs would be lost on occasion, but for one person to lose a few makes me question the vet doing the surgery.Brain said:but I have also lost several foster dogs and my own dogs from being spayed. I know organizations that are so fixed on fixing dogs that they fix them at such a young age that they die there on the table.
A $30 chip and/or ID tags could have prevented that. I know it might seem expensive, but it can and does prevent tragedies like that.Brain said:Dogs escape, I have a friend who's dog escaped and as hard as they looked, it turned out a kennel kept it for one day then put it down. Not all dogs are put down because someone cant care for it.
When they didn't spay their dog they were setting that up to happen. I understand that some dogs have certain medical problems that would prevent them getting spayed, but most of the time that is not the case. I also know that some people must keep their dogs intact in order to show, but dogs only come into season twice a year. They should be able to keep them locked up for that time, especially if they have the time and money to show.Brain said:or raped by another dog.
I agree. Just like with rats, there is nothing wrong with good, responsible breeders. The point of breeding any animal should be to better the breed. In my opinion, the animal must be registered, health certified by a doctor, and carefully considered before allowed to procreate.Brain said:Breeders also have bred stronger and stronger dogs
