From Dr. Karen Becker:
Chances are you own a pet that’s been neutered or spayed the conventional way. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), 83 percent of pet dogs are, and many undergo one of these procedures before 6 months of age.
However, here’s something that many pet owners don’t realize:
Both spaying and neutering remove allof the normal sex hormone-secreting tissues, but your dog still needs a certain level of circulating hormones for normal biologic functioning throughout life.
Over time, the loss of these hormone-secreting organs takes a toll on your dog’s adrenal glands, as they are the only tissues remaining that are capable of producing these hormones. Now they must do their own work plus the work of the missing organs. It's very difficult for these tiny little glands to keep up with the body's demand.
In addition to this extra burden, your pet’s body must cope with the continuous exposure to chemicals, from pesticides to plastics to flame retardants. These chemicals can affect your dog’s hormones in much the same way as spaying and neutering!
