DOGS AND CATS: Ovariohysterectomy (OVH) surgery in the female pets involves removal of the uterus and both ovaries. It is an effective technique spaying female dogs and cats. The advantage of OVH before the first estrus, 6-10 months, is a significant reduction of incidence of mamary neoplasia. If the owner really knows he doesn´t want to rais with his pet then our advice is to operate with 6 months old. Spay will eliminate the sometimes messy heat cycles that atract male dogs to your house. OVH affects the ability to regulate food intake and thus predisposes these animals to obesity. Inactivity and increased food intake contributes to weight gains up to 38%. If dogs are exercised regularly and their food intake is control, there are no significant increase weight in spayed females. We can´t forget they are still puppys. Adult ones can have a light dry food.
