Castration contract, why?

Many customers question the reason for the mandatory sterilization of puppies sold to the kennel company. All our puppies are sold with a neutering contract and we always explain that the main reason is "SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE THE LONGEVITY OF DOGS", read below the main advantages of neutering dogs and cats: (we always recommend the surgery performed between 6 and 12 months) .

Castration focuses on disease prevention and  not in monetization.

A lot is said that neutering is the best way out for healthy dogs and cats. Some speculate that this is just another excuse for vets to spend and earn money, or for breeders to have no competition, but is it really? In this text you can check some reasons why the castration of dogs and cats becomes effective in terms of animal welfare. It is thought that the main reason for performing the procedure is to avoid unwanted proliferation of animals. However, a number of diseases with a hormonal background can have their occurrence levels lowered or practically brought to zero.

As an example of this, in males there is a reduction in the chances of prostate problems such as prostatic hypertrophy and hyperplasia and cysts that can cause the animal to compress the rectum and consequently have difficulty defecating, or even difficulty emptying the bladder due to loss of vesical tone. (elasticity, resistance and bladder control). In females, important diseases can be practically extinct, such as cystic endometrial hyperplasia; pyometra (infection in the uterus); tumors of the breast, uterus and ovaries and mastitis (inflammation of the breasts). It also prevents animals from contracting sexually transmitted diseases, such as the transmissible venereal tumor, better known as TVT.

In addition to the diseases mentioned above, castration can mitigate some behaviors making the animal calmer, such as the end of feline vocalizations, end of territory demarcation (pee in unwanted places), animals become more socializable with others. An important aspect that must also be taken into account is the increase in the life expectancy of the animal, since neutered males live about 14% and females about 26% longer than non-neutered animals.

Therefore, thinking about castration is not only an exercise of citizenship for the extinction of stray dogs and diseases transmissible to humans, it is also an exercise of care and love of the owner who watches over the well-being and quality of life of his pet.
