Article on neutering/spaying and cancers

This forum is for dog lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your dog.

That's the one I linked to a few months ago Watson - here. I think it's worth posting again though as I think it's an informative article that I found quite interesting.

This is just one reason I will never neuter Mervyn. Loss of testosterone is directly related to heart disease, heart attack, stroke, cardiovascular disease, senile dementia, and hip fracture. Here is a really good link:
