Hi. This is Jody King-Colegrove with Quantum Techniques. We’re the most comprehensive diagnostic form of energy medicine in the world today. I work with people all over the world on the phone helping them discover why they’re not healing and what they can do about it. Today I want to talk to you about pet health. When we got a puppy, I did a lot of research on how to help the dog be as healthy as possible. One of the things that is coming to light are the facts about neutering and spaying way too early. What does this practice cause?
I have an article from Dr. Becker, who runs Dr. Mercola’s sister website for pets. I want to read some of those facts to you and talk about them. Dr. Becker says that if you spay or neuter your pet before the age of 24 months, there is a higher possibility of having joint disease in the pet, and permanently changing the health of the puppy in a negative way. So what’s going on? When you spay or neuter you’re taking out the sex organs. There’s a lot of hormones within the sex organs that help regular growth occur in the body. If these sterilization processes are done too early it can promote many different diseases in pets. One of them is hip dysplasia, which doesn’t allow the platelets to grow correctly because they don’t have a chance to finish growing since those hormones are not in the body.
Because sex hormones regulate growth, if you remove them too soon you’ll often get dogs that have longer legs, narrower heads and bodies, and lighter bones than normal. So they may have more issues with let’s say, bone cancer. Studies have shown that bone cancer can be alleviated if you do not spay and neuter your pet until after 24 months. So the longer that you can wait to have them neutered or spayed, the more the sex hormones the pet will maintain to help prevent against bone cancer. The same study says that sex hormones can play a synergetic role in your dog’s health and development related to joint disease, and their removal can create an imbalance in the body. Sterilization can also cause obesity in pets. Dogs that are sterilized before the age of six months have a 70% increase of risk in developing hip dysplasia due to a combination of being overweight along with the increased propensity for joint disease and lighter bones.
An option to sterilizing pets before 24 months of age, is having a veterinarian perform a vasectomy or tubal ligation. They’re not common, but they do retain all the sex organs for the pets so that they have a better chance at a longer life span of high quality.
I wanted to share that with you because it’s something that is pertinent in my life related to my pet and the research that I did. You can go onto our website for lots more free information including MP3 downloads and videos about pets. You can also complete a session request form to find out more information about your pet from a session with a QT practitioner. I hope that you continue to have healthy and happy pets, but if your pet is not doing well contact us and we can figure out what we can do to help them have a healthier and happier life!
