Jessica Hekman - PART 1: To Spay or Not to Spay - That is the Question

Date: Thursday, Oct. 18, 2018  
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time).
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Veterinarians used to routinely recommend that your dog be neutered (spayed or castrated) at 6 months of age. That recommendation has been questioned in the past decade as information about the possible health consequences of early age neuter (or neuter at any age) comes to light.

Jessica Hekman, DVM will present a webinar on the potential health risks and benefits of neutering your dog.

Jessica will discuss what we know about the relationship of spay/neuter timing and changes in the risk of development of cancer. She will also talk about how spay/neuter can affect behavior, for better or worse. She will specifically discuss some recent studies and will detail problems designing effective studies to ask these questions.

If you are wondering when, or if, you should neuter your dog, make your decision based on facts, not emotions. Join Jessica for an informative webinar based on the latest research.

This is Part 1 of a two part Webinar. In Part 2, Sue Yanoff, DVM, will discuss the orthopedic aspects of spay/neuter. Each is a standalone webinar. You can register for one, or choose both for a more thorough understanding of the topic.

**These will be two separate webinars given on the same day. You can register for one or both of them.  There will be very little overlap of information. If you are wondering when, or if, you should neuter your dog, make your decision based on facts, not emotions. Join Jessica and Sue for two informative webinars.**

Note: A recorded version will be made available in your webinar library 24-48 hours after the presentation.
