Guest posted a topic in Health and Medical discussionSo, I have often wondered why we don't leave the ovaries when we spay our female greyhounds, since research is indicating how important it is to a woman's health to keep her ovaries, if possible. Today, I found the following discussion about ovary-sparing spay for dogs, especially in large or giant breeds, by the Parsemus Foundation. Here is the link: https://www.parsemusfoundation.org/projects/ovary-sparing-spray/ If there are hormonal benefits to keeping the ovaries that include less incidence of devastating illnesses such as various cancers, as well as many other diseases, why haven't I heard more about this? I do see that keeping ovaries may be linked to mammary tumors, so there may be positive and negative consequences of partial spay that need to be watched. But, it sounds like the positives may greatly outweigh the negatives. My one question is will a greyhound with an ovary-sparing spay still go into season just like an intact female (without the major discharge, of course)? They also discuss vasectomy as a healthier option for males. Does anyone out there have any experience with this? Opinions?
Hey Guys I am a first time greyhound parent and we're about to have our 19 month old female spayed - I cannot tell you how nervous I am Our little miss is still a little anxious and nervous in certain situations so I know this will be difficult process for her. I've been doing bits of reading and there have been the standard pieces of information floating around. However I was hoping for some information on what to expect with a greyhound (as I know they are super big sooks) and any tips/tricks you may have from when you've had your girls spayed. So many thanks in advance xx
