SPAY/NEUTER MISCONCEPTIONS

MYTH:

Females should have one litter before spaying.

TRUTH:

The best time to spay a female is before her first heat. This also greatly reduces the threat of breast cancer.

MYTH:

Behavior and personality are altered after surgery.

TRUTH:

Changes in behavior are positive. These include reduction of territorial spraying, less fighting, and less urge to roam.

MYTH:

Animals become fat and lazy after surgery.

TRUTH:

In most cases, animals become fat and lazy because they’re overfed and inactive.

MYTH:

Males don’t need to be neutered because they don’t have litters.

TRUTH:

Un-fixed males and females are the cause of overpopulation.

HOW TO AVOID DOG ATTACKS:

If you see a pack of roaming dogs:

  • Avoid eye contact
  • Remain silent
  • DO NOT RUN
  • Keep your hands down at your side
  • Stand with the side of your body facing the dog (never turn your back)
  • Once the dog loses interest, slowly back away until they are out of sight

If you are being attacked:

    • Put anything (your purse, bag or jacket) you have to put between you and the dog to protect yourself.
    • If you are knocked down, curl into a ball with your head tucked in and your hands over your ears and neck. Do not move and be silent.
    • When you get to a safe place, immediately wash any wounds with soap and water. Seek medical attention, especially:If the wound is serious. [Uncontrolled
      bleeding, loss of function, extreme pain,
      muscle or bone exposure…etc]
      If the wound becomes red, painful, warm or
      swollen, or if you develop a fever.
      If it has been more than 5 years since your
      last tetanus shot and the bite is deep.
