One of the findings: it does away with neutering preventing prostate cancer. Also read up on behavior changes.

I did not see any authors myself but I liked that they had things to look out for and the lay out of the article. I have noticed that they combine a few articles from a few online veterinary sources such as dvm 360, avma, animal veterinarian colleges. I linked in the above post from a accredited veterinarian source and there are many articles related to pyo.
That is a serious downside to rescuing puppies. I had a rescued male foster that was neutered when he was already mature, but developed significant behavior problems after neutering. My current female was spayed at 8 weeks. She had cancer and some other weird growths, and rare illnesses. As a result, and for other reasons, I would not adopted a dog again who had a pediatric speuter.Makes no difference to me. I didn't get a say. Both my dogs were shelter pups, speutered between 7 and 8 weeks. Would I have chosen that? NO! But it's done. Boh is a beagle mix, who will be 7 years old on Friday. Shelby is a big 'mostly' GSD girl, who will be 5 years old in August. So far, so good with health. No guarantees in life, no matter what you do.
None of our local vets are trained to do that so they don’t. I would like to find someone who does in case I want that option with a future dog.What about OSS spay? Remove the uterus, but leave the ovaries. Very little chance for PYO? I see no reason on a female to take the ovaries unless there is an issue with them.
