Today’s PetMeds Spotlight is on the healthiest time to spay or neuter your pet. Opinions vary greatly as to the results that the procedure can have on the demeanor of the pet post surgery; but from a physical standpoint, there is a time that can be healthier to have it done.

The timing really depends on the breed, and while doing your own research, you should speak to your vet for advice as well.

General consensus is usually around 1 year old.

It takes two to litter, please fix your critter.
