are oral products on the market that your veterinarian can prescribe as
birth control for you dog. However in the medical literature for the product
it is not recommended for animals intended for breeding. This is often
very disappointing since most pet owners who do not want to spay their
pets so they can be bred later.
But it must be emphasized that there is a medical benefit in spaying your
dog before their first heat, that is in addition to reproductive control.
It has been well researched that females who have been spayed prior to
their first heat, have almost no chance of developing mammary cancer. Before
making a decision as to spay or not to spay, please consult your veterinarian
for advice as to the risks and benefits to all of your options.
