I am getting Henry neutered, no doubt about it.
I just don’t know when. I was going to get him fix as soon as his testi’s dropped, about 6months (3 months away) BUT so many people are telling me not too. People keep saying let him mature with the correct testosterone then get him neutered, but I don’t know.
I never had to do this stuff, my mom and older brother took care of it…those who have neutered/spade their babies, what do you think I should do?

I need help..
So my female rabbit she is a mini Rex has been humping my arm my leg pretty much everything that moves I know that sounds stupid but i have read that females hump trying to be dominate over someone and she keeps digging in the house (also on me) and biting everything I have read that spaying her will help stop this behavior and I’m wanting to know who have spayed there rabbit and if it is safe and how you feel about rabbits being fixed.

Sometimes I think, "Oh, maybe we shouldn't have spayed Lia. She has such unique genes and she could have such interesting looking puppies."
Then I realize that that’s stupid, and that there are already too many dogs without homes in the world, and that spaying is ALWAYS the right thing to do, unless you are a dog breeder. Even then, some breeders shouldn’t be able to touch dogs. At all. Ever.
Dear tumblr people,
Spaying = removing the ovaries i.e. rendering the animal infertile. Most spays carried out are in actually ovo-hysterectomies, but sometimes the uterus is left in.
Castration = removing testicles i.e. rendering the animal infertile
Neutering = either of the above or, more recently, including chemical neutering [chemical castrations are more common]. Saying “please spay or neuter your dog” doesn’t quite work as spaying is neutering; it would be better to say “please neuter your dog” or “please “spay or castrate your dog”.
Oddly this confusion seems more prevelant from non-Europeans, but I’m sure that’s just to do with the sources I’ve read rather than actually being the case.
