Ever since we got Grace, I have been grappling with the decision of neutering. For now, we are keeping her intact but at some point in the next 2 years we need to think about it seriously so I started collecting evidence. I still haven’t read everything in detail because there is so much to learn about dogs, but in the meantime I’m making it available for whoever is interested.
I’ve put together a review document of up-to-date evidence on dog neutering, includes abstracts, key highlights and links to original documents. It’s a long read, but it’s not a simple topic and the “right” answer depends on the breed as well as the risk preference/convenience tradeoff for the owner.
You can view and download the Google document as well as many of the research articles from this Google drive folder.
