<blockquote>My question is about neutering my 8 month old yellow lab. He is scheduled for sugery on Monday morning, but after reading someone’s response to my query on Classical Homeopathy Pets in Yahoo Groups, I’m having doubts about going through with the surgery. Here is the answer to my posting: Your 7 month old lab is way to young to be neutered. You need to wait until he has reached maturity. The hormones you will be eliminating by neutering him are essential to his growth. Forget the remedies – cancel the appointment!!

1. A healthy dog, free from vaccinosis and chronic disease, will not have
“male associated behavior problems.”
2. Suprressing symptoms, such as “male associated behavior problems” will
drive the chronic disease deeper into the life force and the chronic disease
will then manifest itself in the form of more serious symptoms.
3. Removing hormones is suppression.
Therefore, if your reason for castration is simply to remove these
behaviors, you are causing great harm to your animal!!! You need to educate
yourself before you take such a drastic step. I am not telling you to leave
the dog in tact for life but there is no reason that a healthy dog needs to
be castrated. Knowing what I do now, I will never alter another of my
animals. In fact, I spoke with the breeder of my next puppy and told her
how I felt so that we could come to an understanding. Removing sexual
organs has become the social norm in this country because pet owners are too lazy and irresponsible. So, now, we are affecting the health of our beloved pets simply for our own convenience.
If you are going to neuter this dog at least wait until he has reached full
maturity. My guess for a male lab would be two years.
What should I do? Help!
