Re: Neutering and Cancer?
Luther is a beautiful pup!!!
So sorry to read about your boy that you lost to hemangiosarcoma of the spleen. I know how much this can hurt. I lost my soul mate, Echo, to hemangiosarcoma of the heart. It killed my mutt, Bo, spleen and other organs. And I just had to put my old male, Ringer, down less than a month ago for numerous health reasons including hemangiosarcoma of the heart. I also lost Niki, to osteosarcoma. Too survived an encapsulated cancerous tumor, I thought it was hemangiosarcoma but believe now it was another type of cancer (and am not sure how to get the diagnosis at this late date).
I also recommend neutering a male no earlier than 18 to 24 months old and a bitch after her first heat cycle.
