Why should I spay/neuter my dog?
Fixing your pet can prevent cancer, is less likely to run away and contract certain diseases. Besides a healthier, possibly longer life, you will never have to deal with an unwanted pregnancy. Handling a dog’s pregnancy and newborn puppies is very expensive. Pit Bulls have large litters of up to 10 puppies—and they all need vaccines and veterinary care.
What is a vasectomy?
Vasectomy is surgery to “tie the tubes” of a male dog. The testicles are left in place and your dog’s appearance and behavior do not change. It does not offer the health benefits of neutering, such as prevention of an enlarged prostate and prevention of testicle cancer; it is only a method of preventing pregnancy. We recommend neutering as the best option for your dog’s health, but offer vasectomy as an option for those who are not comfortable neutering their dogs.
What if my dog is a Pit mix?
That’s fine, as long as the dog is clearly a true Pit mix.
What if my dog has other health problem I need addressed?
Please see your own veterinarian or call (212) 876-7700 ext. 4200, to schedule an appointment with one of our Bergh veterinarians.
I don’t want my dog to be spayed, neutered or have a vasectomy; can my dog still have vaccines or a microchip?
We encourage you to have your dog vaccinated and microchipped, but this can only be done through Operation Pit if the dog is also spayed, neutered or has a vasectomy.
